Facilities Master Plan
As our society changes with the influx of new ideas and priorities, we need to address these trends in the way we create space for sports in Singapore.
The Sports Facilities Master Plan (SFMP) is a key recommendation under the Vision 2030 sports master plan, to provide greater access to quality, affordable sports facilities and enable wider participation in sports. It provides the physical foundation for sports in Singapore, enables our sports talents to pursue excellence and creates common spaces for people to interact, bond and rally around Team Singapore.
When the implementation of the Masterplan is complete, a majority of Singaporeans will have easy and convenient access to a new generation of sports and recreational facilities that will enable wider participation in sports.
The first phase of the Masterplan will include a mix of new facilities as well as a rejuvenation of the existing ones, with innovative new features.
New facilities to be built include:
- A new Regional Sports Centre in Punggol that will cater to a wider range of competitive sports and events and will be integrated with Punggol's waterways and co-located with the SAFRA clubhouse. This new Regional Sports Centre will be able to host sports activities and events for the community of Punggol
- A new Town Sports and Recreation Centre that will be part of a community hub in Sembawang that will combine sporting and community facilities to create a vibrant social space and offer greater convenience to residents
Amongst the current facilities to be upgraded will be the Ang Mo Kio Swimming Complex that will be redeveloped into a Wet Play Field that will comprise modern wet features such as an adventure sports pool with a floating playground.
At the community level, new spaces and facilities will be created in the neighbourhood for sports and recreation as part of the Sports in Precinct programme. The Jurong Spring Community Play Field is a pilot project for the new programme that will feature sheltered playing areas and multi-use courts, to cater to all ages, thereby bringing new sporting spaces closer to residents.
