Due to limited land mass and high population growth, many parks in Singapore are built on reclaimed land. Similar to East Coast Park and Pasir Ris Park, West Coast Park was developed on a piece of reclaimed land. The park was completed in 1979.
Favored as an exercising spot on weekdays in the mornings and evenings, it is highly popular with picnickers, barbeque groups, and families camping in tents on weekends and especially around local holidays. But today we found it very quiet and only a few brave souls venturing out for some fresh air and exercise!
There are also toilet facilities and drinking water fountains around West Coast Park.
