Garden Tour - Alexandra Canal

After my visit to Lor Halus wetland reserve, I have visited another similar place that uses plants to purified our water system - allow me to introduce the newly renovated Alexandra Canal along Prince Charles Crescent.

The Singapore Story: Memoirs of Lee Kuan YewNewly opened by Minister Mentor, Mr Lee Kuan Yew on 19 March 2011, it seeks to clean and purified rainwater collected from the neighborhood before releasing it into Alexandra Canal.

Most of the technical details have already been discussed in the write up on Lor Halus Wetland Reserve page and I shall not bore you further. However, I felt that Alexandra Canal and Lor Halus got very different atmosphere to it. Lor Halus has a wild functional feel to it, while Alexandra Canal is designed for families gathering and morning joggers around a nice neighborhood.

Take a look at both the page to see the difference!

This location will be classified under both Garden and Education categories.

If you need transportation services to visit this place, please refer to our product listing page.
