3. Fitness Enthusiast Mummy
Fitness is fun! As our parents get older, they need to stay active to stay healthy. Working out with your mum can be super fun and healthy at the same time.
Maybe…but it’s a great way to grow and develop a better bond with your beloved mum.
Join yoga class, Pilates, spinning class, jogging, Zumba or blaze a trail in Chestnut Nature Park, the largest park in Singapore. The newly opened Chestnut Nature Park (North) on February 25, 2017 is about 64 hectares.
The Northern Loop is fairly easy to hike for first timers!
While hiking up, you can enjoy the greeneries, which are native tree species. Some of these species are the Braided Chestnut (Castanopsis inermis), Singapore Walking-Stick Palm (Rhopaloblaste singaporensis) and the Jelutong (Dyera costulata). Gear up and explore the nature on this special day with your mother!
