The proposed sporting facilities, such as swimming pools, indoor sports halls, sheltered tennis, futsal and netball courts, gymnasium and fitness studios, and a football stadium will create opportunities for the community to come together and bond through sporting activities.
There are plans for the development to house the national training centres for aquatics, netball and table tennis.
The Toa Payoh Sport Centre’ has a rich sporting heritage, hosting major games such as the Southeast Asia Peninsular Games in 1973, the Southeast Asia Games in 1983, 1993 and 2015, and the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in 2010.
The redeveloped Toa Payoh Polyclinic within the new development is part of Ministry of Health’s (MOH) plan to invest in primary care, and to enable Singaporeans to receive care closer to home. With an ageing population and the prevalence of chronic diseases, there will be a shift in focus towards preventive health and early intervention to encourage the public to take charge of their own health.
The new location will also make it more accessible compared to the current polyclinic located at Lorong 8 Toa Payoh.
The integrated development will house a new and bigger library to replace the existing one, providing a space where patrons can read, learn, and discover from the surrounding environment, and the facilities and programmes to be offered by the National Library Board (NLB).
Regional Town Park
Toa Payoh Town Park, the first town park in Singapore, will be rejuvenated with enhanced greenery and new amenities, bringing families closer to flora and fauna. The development and landscaping of the new regional park are shaped around the existing terrain and will retain its heritage characteristics and lush vegetation, such as the Lookout Tower.
The public can share their feedback on the inclusion of other amenities such as a dog run, multi-purpose event lawn and spaces, therapeutic garden and allotment garden plots for those seeking respite amidst greenery, as well as a nature playgarden for the little ones to connect with nature through play in a natural habitat.
