A new haven in Sengkang

A new haven in Sengkang

 

THE sleepy Sengkang West neighbourhood is set to get a splash of life – the Sengkang Sports and Recreation Centre is almost ready.

 

Final touches are being made to the $28 million centre, complete with two swimming pools and water slides, as well as a sports hall and hockey field.

 

It is expected to be handed over to the Singapore Sports Council, which will manage the facility, early next month, and it should open soon after.

 

A spate of construction delays had caused the project to miss its early 2008 opening date, causing much disappointment.

 

Sengkang West, formed in the run-up to the 2006 General Election, is home to about 35,000 residents but is relatively undeveloped, compared to other parts of Sengkang and Punggol.

 

The sports centre is part of a multi-million- dollar makeover to transform the area into a recreation haven with eateries, parks and water-sports facilities.
