SINGAPORE - The largest dog run in the east was opened by the National Parks Board on Sunday (Nov 22).

The 0.2ha dog run is located at Parkland Green within East Coast Park.

Bird owners will also be able to bring their winged companions for a day out at a new bird perch located next to the dog run.

Both the dog run and bird perch were designed in consultation with the community, with a Friends of the Park community for East Coast Park formed on Sunday.

"I am heartened to see the active participation by many stakeholders in caring for the environment and biodiversity at East Coast Park, which is the most popular park on mainland Singapore," said Minister of State for National Development Tan Kiat How, who was the guest-of-honour and was at the event with his two dogs.
