Parc Greenwich Location Review
Parc Greenwich is located in the Fernvale area of Sengkang estate. It’s also along Yio Chu Kang Rd, which is a major road connecting the housing estates of Sengkang, Ang Mo Kio, Hougang and Serangoon. Parc Greenwich is also located just opposite the Seletar Hills estate, a peaceful neighbourhood of low-density private houses. This will appeal to families as it’s a great environment to bring up your children.
For drivers, Parc Greenwich is at a very convenient location as you’ll only need to turn out to Yio Chu Kang Rd and drive within 5 minutes to get to the Central Expressway (CTE), Seletar Expressway (SLE) and Tampines Expressway (TPE). The CTE brings you to the CBD in less than 20 minutes (off-peak) while SLE and TPE will conveniently bring you to the northern/western and eastern parts of Singapore.
What’s great is that Parc Greenwich’s entrance is at Fernvale Lane which is a quiet road so drivers won’t have to worry about congestion when you’re coming in and out of Parc Greenwich.

Do note that there’ll be a BTO project, Fernvale Dew located opposite Parc Greenwich. It will TOP in 2022 and the road is expected to get busier.
One downside is that Parc Greenwich is not located near an MRT station. However, residents can walk for about 10 minutes to Fernvale LRT Station and take a 6-minute ride to Sengkang MRT Station on the Northeast Line (NEL). They can also take bus 70 to get to Serangoon Station, which is an interchange station for the Circle Line (CCL) and NEL.
As for amenities, Greenwich V mall is located just opposite Parc Greenwich and it’s less than a 5-minute walk away. The mall has a Cold Storage supermarket, dining options, a pharmacy, a laundrette and enrichment centres. The Seletar Mall is an even bigger mall about a 10-min walk away and connected to Fernvale LRT Station. There’s Fairprice Finest and a wide variety of restaurants/cafes, retail stores like UNIQLO, furniture stores, a cinema, beauty parlours and more.
If you’re looking for hangout spots with loved ones, you can head over to the restaurants and cafes at Jalan Kayu, Seletar Aerospace Park and Jalan Selaseh at Seletar Hills.
With so many dining and retail options and supermarkets nearby, Parc Greenwich residents’ won’t have to travel far for their daily needs. For families, having plenty of dining options nearby is also very convenient so you can easily have meals together outside.
As Sengkang is already popular with young families, the good news is that there is a wide range of schools around Parc Greenwich.

For residents who love nature, they’d appreciate a proposed park that’s just beside Parc Greenwich.
