It was another huge turn out at this morning's sketchwalk at Punggol Waterway. It was a very hot day but it did not damper our spirit. We found shaded area under the bridge and I was sketching next to the river bank which was very cool and breezy.
Punggol Waterway was part of the concept plan under Punggol 21 Plus. Before Punggol 21 Plus, there was Punggol 21 which was put on hold due to the financial crisis in the 90s. A central feature of Punggol 21 Plus was the Waterway connecting two reservoirs namely Serangoon Reservoir on one side and Punggol Reservoir on the other side. Punggol Waterway was also called "Venice of Punggol" by some people. By 2015, besides residences, Punggol will have a new commerical hub and a town plaza around Punggol MRT station. Punggol will be as big as Ang Mo Kio when it matures.
