Time for another run!
After a haitus, we are back for more running. This time around, we head to Bay East Garden for
an easy route. Bay East Garden is located on the opposite side of Marina Bay
and Gardens by the bay.
Running Route: Benjamin Sheares Bridge to Marina East Park and back
Total Distance: 4km
It has an open view of the Marina Bay skyline, making it one of the more
scenic places to run. We took a run from Benjamin Sheares Bridge to Marina
East Park and back. The route is approximately 4km and can be completed slowly
within 30 minutes.
What you see
Marina Bay Skyline
Starting off from Benjamin Sheares bridge, you will run towards Marina Bay
The first thing that you see will be the skyline of Marina Bay. This is also a
good spot to watch New Year’s Eve or National Day Fireworks at Marina Bay
It is a straight route to Marina Barrage with a view on your right and Bay
East Gardens on your left. Part of the Bay East Gardens is under renovation
for the new Founder’s memorial. Thus, the best way to run would be on the
You could consider extending your route to
Marina Barrage. We decided to opt for Marina East Park instead.
Marina East Park
Marina East Park is a small park that faces the Singapore Straits. The
entrance to the park is just next to the bridge linking up to Marina Barrage.
There is a small playground located there. Running to the edge of the gardens,
you will be greeted by the rising sun with the Breakwater in the foreground
(if you are up in the morning).
You will spot an interesting-looking building at the park. This is actually
the MCE ventilation building and not a normal building.
You will be greeted by a nice view of the Singapore Flyer leaving the park.
Bay East Garden
On the way back, we decided on a short detour into Bay East Garden and chanced
upon a few ‘local’ residents.
|Turtles at Bay East Gardens|
Several large red slider turtles and a family of otters can be seen roaming
the aquatic ponds. If you are lucky, you may even spot some monitor lizards.
This stretch is not very long; probably only about 500 m is accessible.
The path will lead you straight to the starting point under Benjamin Sheares
