2. Schools and Childcare Centres Aplenty
To meet the needs of young working couples, Sengkang is littered with schools that range from kindergartens, all the way to secondary schools.

With a grand total of 12 primary schools and six secondary schools in the area, residents need not not worry about finding quality education for their children.
3. A Paradise for the Avid Foodie
When it comes to food, Sengkang hits the nail on the head. Dubbed the “Simpang” of Sengkang, Jalan Kayu is truly an understated food paradise. Restaurants like Tang Tea House and Jerry’s Bbq and Grill are some of the popular eateries you can expect at this food strip. Jalan Kayu houses the popular 24-hour supper spot Thasevi Food, and the famous Armenian Street Char Kway Teow stall, which moved from its old city centre location to Sengkang. Be it a prata-and-teh fix, or a fresh plate of char kway teow - meals here with good company will definitely warm the cockles of your hearts.
4. Green Spaces for The Family
Sengkang Riverside Park is indeed one of the key attractions. Have that outdoor activity fun with your family on the park’s hiking trails through the fruit trees, marshland and the Sengkang Floating Wetlands. When stormy clouds are at bay, strap on your shoes for an invigorating jog through your own neighbourhood park found at Rivervale Crescent, Compassvale Walk, Compassvale Lane, Compassvale Bow, or Jalan Kayu.
5. Unparalleled Accessibility
Sengkang features an LRT line that connects residents to various parts of the neighbourhood. A bus interchange at Buangkok MRT station allows easy travel to other parts of Singapore with direct bus services. With recent road-widening works and a highly dense road network, Sengkang is easily accessible via public and private transport.
