Coney Island to open on Oct 10

SINGAPORE — Known for its natural, rustic charm, Coney Island will open on Oct 10 to the public, the National Parks Board (NParks) said today (Sept 3).
 
The 45ha island, which is also known as Pulau Serangoon, is located off the north-eastern coast of Singa­pore.
 
It will open at 10am on October 10.
 
NParks is looking for volunteers to conduct guided walks and other activities such as bird-watching for the public on the day of the opening and the year-end school holidays.
 
The agency will hold training sessions for volunteers, during which they will learn about the flora and fauna of the island. The island, which is located off Punggol, is known as a stop for migratory birds.
 
Tender documents released last year revealed that infrastructure on Coney Island includes a bird-watching station, walkways, and solar street lights.
 
According to the master plan by the Urban Redevelopment Authority, a part of Coney Island is zoned for residential, sport, and recreational use.
 
Those who would like to volunteer may contact NParks at cin@nparks.gov.sg.
