Can’t travel? No matter. It’s about time we explore our own backyard. Many of us lament that there’s not much we can do back home in terms of outdoor activities. No doubt we can’t compare to the likes of the Australian outback and the National Parks. But there’s actually a wide diversity of flora and fauna in our garden city if we would just give it a chance.

Did you know that Singapore has 350 parks and 4 nature reserves? And that our entire island is well-connected by an interlinked network called the Park Connector Network (PCN)? There’s plenty of designated green spaces where we can indulge in our favourite outdoor activities. Be it running, hiking, cycling or simply walking, find out where you can go to reap the therapeutic benefits of nature on the National Parks website. But before you head out, check out the safe distancing site for traffic at these locations.

Get far from the madding crowds in the malls. With no sign of the COVID-19 situation abating, there’s no better time to get out there and explore Singapore’s great outdoors. Here’s a list of our favourite outdoor activities you can engage in, as well as accompanying gear and accessories to work out safely and head out in style.
