Embracing Nature: Labrador Park Beach


Singapore may be small.  However, I love the easy access to the beaches and also the large number of parks.

Nature never fails to give me the serenity that I need and keep my young ones “well and healthily” occupied too.

[instead of following mommy uninterestingly in a shopping complex.]


There are a number of beaches cum parks here eg. East Coast Park, Pasir Ris Park and Labrador Park. 



Labrador Park, besides its beach, diversity of flora and fauna, is an educational site too - rich with historcial relics (click to read our previous post on Labrador Nature Reserve).


In the photos above, the boys were standing before a symbolic replica of the Dragon’s Teeth Gate (Long Ya Men).

The Dragon’s Teeth Gate used to be located at the gateway to Keppel Harbour in Singapore, to provide navigational aids. It was useful as navigational aids to Ming Dynasty’s Admiral Zheng He during his maritime voyages to the west.  Read more about its history HERE.  


More photos of historical relics here.



Children being children. What interests them most are still …..


The BEACH…..

where people are fishing, enjoying that cool breeze and where Brendan gazed at the sea “wordless” (obviously in deep thoughts).




The PARK……

where they can stroll, jog, run, cycle and basically “HAVE FUN”.



A park will not be complete without its flora and fauna.

I am a plant lover and colourful blooms are always an attraction.

Bring your kids to the park and open their world to the habitat of the flora and fauna.

If we are paying enough attention, we might have a close encounter with the insects and fauna.

Darren, sometimes enjoys spotting them. Other times, he will flee off after his brother with their chasing games *Smile*.


My boys always finds extra fun, playing with the puppies of other park lovers.







Kids love playground. Seriously, adults play at the playground here too….. One of them is ME…haha.

This is the place where I mentioned in a recent post about the MAZE and hide-and-seek where I had fun with my boys.



So, do expose your kids to more Greenery and Healthy Lifestyle while they still care to tag along with the parents.

There is a whole Green Environment out there!

It is certainly more comfortable to stay in air-conditioned complex with the kids.


the sweats and the walk at the Green Outdoor is definitely more WORTH IT!

    I go there almost every month and this is one of my favourite park as well. Just no time to write a review on this ;)

    Anyway, it is good to expose kids to nature at very young age especially in our overcrowded city life.
