Flying Kites Around SengKang
There are a few places near Sengkang and Hougang that you could see people flying kites at big empty fields scattered between the Buangkok Drive and Anchorvale Street.
One of these empty field of green grass is my favourite kite flying places. It is locate right opposite the Sengkang Swimming Pool, Sengkang Sport Complex and Farmway LRT. I like to come here for kite flying because I could easily combine 2 or more activities together such as swimming, kite-flying or visiting parks. On Weekends, this field will be crowded with families and kids running around trying to pull their kites up the sky. The wind is blowing quite constantly and the filed is big with no obstructions which make this place an ideal place to fly kite.
Suggested Activities and Tips
The best time to fly the kites are on the early morning 7.30-9.30am or in the evening around 5pm – 7pm. This place get crowded on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening. If it gets too crowded, cross over to other side of the road which is also nice for kite flying.
Do pack a few cool drinks and wear a hat.
