The National Parks Board (NParks) opened a dog run and a bird perch at East Coast Park on Nov. 22.

Both the dog run and the bird perch will enhance pet-friendly amenities at the park.

It is located at Parkland Green within East Coast Park, easily accessible for park visitors via the underpass and a nearby carpark.

The area allows dogs to run wild and free.

Friends of East Coast Park

The dog run and the bird perch were designed in consultation with dog enthusiast, Susan Tan, and bird owner community, Bird Craze.

Both Tan and Francis Mitchell from Bird Craze are part of the new Friends of East Coast Park (FoECP), a ground-led initiative to promote responsible use of Singapore's green space.

The group also consists of members of the pet community, the sustainability movement, and East Coast Park tenants.

Interested members of the community can join the group here.
