The extension is part of the National Day celebrations. The National Day Parade will also be screened at the Sports Hub.

As part of Singapore’s National Day celebrations, the Singapore Sports Hub has decided to extend the free use of its facilities till Aug 17. So if you missed out on getting tickets to this year’s National Day Parade (NDP), you can catch all the action on a giant screen at the Sports Hub, as it celebrates the nation’s 49th birthday.

The screening of the NDP at the Sports Hub follows the successful free screenings of the World Cup matches. The free trials, originally slated for the whole month of July, have proved popular with the public, with usage rates hitting about 90 per cent to date. Badminton and swimming have attracted the most number of bookings.

Once the free trial period is over, the Sports Hub will charge a fee for the use of these facilities. The rates, to be announced later, will be aligned with that of other sports facilities in Singapore.

“The free trials will give us feedback on what the public want,” said the Singapore Sports Hub’s Chief Operating Officer Oon Jin Teik. “We will adjust the rates and timings accordingly to make it easily accessible and affordable for all.”

Night lights from the kallang riverside

Serene waterfront views on the Kallang Riverside. Lights in the night. The Indoor Stadium, the new Sports Hub, Tanjong Rhu condos (Costa Rhu, Pebble Bay). The Flyer. Marina Bay. Beautiful.

Was jogging along this scenic park, and was mesmerized by the lights. This is also part of Kampong Bugis where the upcoming masterplan mentioned about the new development plans in Singapore. I also saw a new showflat coming up here. A freehold property launch in a few weeks time. Pricing? It will be interesting to know how much it will fetch to enjoy such a wonderful waterfront view.
