With less reason for locals to head to the airport these days, Singapore’s Changi Airport Group has channeled its efforts into creating a new recreational park connector for visitors to cycle and jog. And when travel resumes, this 3.5km track between the airport and the the larger Park Connector Network in the east—including places like Changi Beach Park and Bedok Reservoir, will serve as an alternative route for visitors to travel to the airport.
The result of a three-year project supported by National Parks Board and the Singapore Tourism Board, the park connector is home to Changi Jurassic Mile, the city’s largest permanent outdoor display of life-sized dinosaurs—including a massive Tyrannosaurus Rex, a trio of velociraptors, and dinosaur eggs.
Dinosaurs aside, visitors can also enjoy new facilities at pit stops, including bicycle rental, pay-per-use showers, a washing bay to freshen up at, as well as the new Hub & Spoke Cafe. Diners can treat themselves to a mash-up of local breakfast favourites like toast and kopi (coffee), Western classics like eggs Benedict, and popular snacks like bubble tea.
