Great for biking, really really long stretch to ride, you can rent the bikes there for about 12$/hr each depending on the type. It's got food stalls BBQ pits you could use. Great view of the ocean and ships coming into the harbour, perfect at night with the lights in the ocean looking like reflections of the stars. At the end of the riding stretch is the airport, you can see the planes coming in every single minute and it's really close just going a few hundred meters above your head, cool experience. You could also bring your own fishing line and catch and reel in your fish :) . Also good for night camping and perfectly safe too. Nice sandy beach too, but no swimming.Do not litter, Singapore is a great country and takes basic rules of society very seriously, you could get up to a 500$ fine.

If there were 50% less people and ban children under 12 years old entirely, it would have been a nice beach to go, to chili out, to enjoy the breeze. Otherwise, I would prefer my sofa and tv

The park has so much to offer from a cable-pulled water skiing facility to gardens but being able to rent a bike made the experience so much better. I took the #48 bus from Victoria and Ophir and got off at St Patrick School stop (#92081) walked the canal path over the expressway and the bike rental facility was easy to find. $8 rental for two hours.

One of the best public parks in Singapore - love ECP to bits! My favourite part is coming here around 7+ in the morning to catch the sunrise with all the fishing enthusisasts at Bedok Jetty. It's a great place to run and is big enough to train for marathons or long-distance runs. And if you ever get thirsty, there are vending machines and a food center within East Coast Park - not to mention fast food joints - where you can get yourself refreshed.
