Learning Your ABCs with 3 Simple Quizzes

In 2006, PUB launched the Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) Programme as an initiative to bring Singaporeans closer to water. Eleven years down the road, the journey to transform the nation’s drains, canals, and reservoirs into beautiful streams, rivers and lakes, has created many vibrant community and recreational nodes for all to enjoy (and there’s still more to come). From kayaking to learning trails, lively play areas for children and boardwalks for family bonding, there are lots of exciting activities waiting to be explored at the various ABC Waters sites.

Here are some wonderful sights to behold at the following venues:
