Melville Park is accessible via Upper Changi Road and Pan Island Expressway (PIE). It would take you about 24 minutes or less to reach the Central Business District (CBD) and Orchard Road via PIE.

Head down to the nearest mall, Eastpoint Mall, if you need to do grocery shopping or get any basic necessities. Surrounded by multiple towns like Changi, Tampines, and Bedok, Melville Park’s location gives you a plethora of dining and shopping options. The wide range of shopping centres and entertainment avenues include Jewel Changi Airport, Changi City Point, Century Square, Tampines 1, and Tampines Mall.

Other nearby educational institutions include Metta School, East Spring Secondary School, Chongzheng Primary School, Pasir Ris Primary School, and Singapore University of Technology and Design.

You will also be strategically located close to Changi Business Park (six-minute drive), Tampines Central (10-minute drive), and Pasir Ris Wafer Fab Park (14-minute drive) – which is going through an expansion – resulting in more jobs closer to home and an increase in potential tenants.
