Running : Kallang Riverside Park Connector


Run by the River

For part 2 of the running series, we head to Kallang Riverside Park for a run.

Kallang Riverside Park is located next to the Kallang River. It is a smallish park that spans about 600 long. However, it is connected to Kallang Park Connector that can bring you to Geylang Park Connector on one side and to Marina Bay on the other side.

Total Distance: 3.6km

For this week, the run will be a loop from Kampong Bugis at Kallang Riverside Park to Singapore Indoor Stadium

You can access Kampung Bugis via Kallang Rd. At the end of the road is a car park that marks the start of Kallang Riverside Point.
