Did you know that Marine Parade has the distinction of being the first housing estate built entirely on reclaimed land?

Why Marine Parade?

Marine Parade was originally named after a promenade near the sea along East Coast Road. Before land reclamation works, the area was part of Katong, and used to be a beach front.

Sited in the east of Singapore, Marine Parade has a wide array of social amenities and recreational facilities, including the beaches on the east coast of the island.

What Makes Marine Parade Town Interesting?

Private houses dotted the beachfront, while the public areas were popular with swimmers and picnickers who patronised the hawker food stalls there. Religious organisations also held a range of recreational and societal activities in the area such as open-air church services and meetings of Buddhist groups.

How Many HDB Flats in Marine Parade?

Marine Parade is home to about 22,300 HDB residents. There are 7,862 flats under the HDB’s management within the area (as of 31 March 2017).

Why Should You Live in Marine Parade?

Today, Marine Parade is a self-sufficient estate with commercial, recreational and leisure facilities woven amongst the housing developments. The estate’s proximity to the sea also gives it a laid-back and relaxed feel.

Recreation

Residents of Marine Parade Estate have easy access to the regional recreational park just across the East Coast Parkway through underpasses linking the estate. For recreation, East Coast Park is a favourite destination for residents and Singaporeans alike.

Despite being given estate status by the Housing and Development Board, Marine Parade, like other towns in Singapore, is served by a town centre.
