Residents in Jurong can look forward to a new integrated community lifestyle and water sports hub in two years’ time.
It will have a bigger boat storage area, as well as a landscaped roof deck to overlook Jurong Lake. To pave the way for this, the People’s Association (PA) is temporarily closing its Water-Venture outlet at the lake. It has hosted water sports activities in the area for almost 10 years.
“In a few years time, just a few years, this will be an even more beautiful place,” said Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam. “Full of trees, full of water (and) full of activity. We will keep the place as natural as possible, because this is a place where we can enjoy nature, and we can relax, as Singaporeans, in our own way, but in the middle of nature.”
Mr Shanmugaratnam was speaking at a community event at Jurong Lake Park on Saturday (Sep 19). Over 1,000 residents turned up for water sports activities, and a barbecue that evening.
