SINGAPORE: Recreational facilities at Punggol Point are shaping up, following the opening of Punggol Point Walk last year.

Operations at the site are set to begin as soon as it receives its temporary occupation permit.

The 2.9—hectare site took about S$4 million to develop.

The site comprises a horse—riding centre with over 60 stables.

It will be themed a cow—boy town, and will feature 30 chalets, a retail shop, and a restaurant.

There also plans to link the site to Coney Island, which is tipped to be Singapore’s ninth nature park.

Punggol Horse Riding Centre’s owner Mani Shanker said: "We can do a nice trail from our place to Coney Island. (It) would be another thing that brings us to connect with nature, and I say eco—green, where you are going without petrol (or) diesel to get into Conney Island. That would be great if we can work with NParks in that area."
