What visitors can expect
According to the National Parks’ Board, the wetlands is located in the middle of JTC’s Seletar Aerospace Park and features boardwalks and a nature trail so visitors can spot flora and fauna, such as birds and insects.

As part of Singapore’s City in Nature concept, Hampstead Wetlands Park has been restored in the midst of industrial estates and urban areas.
