By 2020 of June, Sembawang residents will finally say bye bye to their routine swimming and affordable delicious meals in Yishun.

Around a 12 hectare land, just right after Sembawang MRT Station will rise a spectacular community along with its car-lite sports.

Initiated by Sports Singapore, the famous hub is named  Bukit Canberra which showcases the second Recreation Centre and Town Sports under the program of Sports Facilities Master Plan following Heartbeat@Bedok, published by The New Paper.

The extravagant $1.5 billion project will have its full operation in 2020 and by 2021, Phase 1will have its initial opening.

Bukit Canberra includes amenities such as the 500-seater indoor sports room, a clean and well maintained eight-lane lap pool, a  sheltered swimming pool of six-lanes and an ActiveSG gym with a wide area of 1,500 sqm, a huge place catering all sizes of the public.

During the centre’s groundbreaking ceremony yesterday, July 01, Mr Ong Ye Kung, the Education Minister said, ” The long wait is over, the development that the residents been dreaming has been realized.

Other MP’s also joined him such as the Amrin Amin, the Senior Parliamentary Secretary of Home Affairs and Health, the 800 residents and Khaw Boon Wan, the Transport Minister of Singapore.

To allow residents for chances to unwind and meet other people, the hub provides various features and services.

For example, a 3 km running trails in various difficulties are provided along with a lot of healthcare alternatives to choose like the polyclinic and the senior health care centres offering rehabilitative and occupational services.

The Rx or doctor’s prescription strictly includes routine regular exercises. This time, no one is exempted, ” he stressed.
