There are many things to consider when looking for the “right” home. We believe that the ideal home should cultivate a sense of happiness and play in its residents. For example, Parc Life, the brand new 628-unit executive condominium in Sembawang, has been specially curated by Frasers Centrepoint Homes to inspire playfulness with an abundance of space, a full suite of state-of-the-art facilities, and direct access to nature and parks.
So, if you’re looking for a happier, healthier lifestyle, here are four things to consider when looking for a new home.
1. Does my home give me convenient access to nature?
Imagine coming home from work and taking a relaxing stroll in the park next door while the sun sets slowly in the distance. The warm evening glow feels like a gentle hug on your skin and the dancing leaves on trees rustle gently around you.
You see, residents at Parc Life will have direct access to Canberra Park. In fact, the estate faces the idyllic landscape with jogging trails and playgrounds in the midst of nature. Inspired by the beauty of Canberra Park, the outdoor and indoor spaces of Parc Life were designed to coexist with nature and spaces of renewal, recreation and serenity. Residents will enjoy an oasis of greenery with fantastic views of the landscaping and park, along with a comprehensive suite of facilities that inspire play and family bonding.
If you look for a home near well-equipped parks, maintaining a healthier lifestyle could be more fun and convenient!
Canberra Park is actually Sembawang’s newest pride and a gateway to the area’s lush natural heritage. After its revamp in 2014, the park features Singapore’s first inclusive playground where children of all abilities can play within a safe environment that is both fun and stimulating. It also boasts the largest number of swings on the island!
Play panels with raised textures, a three-slide structure, a colourful obstacle course and even a replica of a dinosaur-skeleton are a kid’s play paradise.
Canberra Park provides Parc Life residents bicycle stations, fitness stations, jogging paths and cycling trails.
2. Is your home well-located for weekend adventures?
With a home surrounded by a rich natural heritage, your weekends will be packed full of healthy adventures with the family. For example, living at Parc Life gives you immediate access to a variety of recreational activities around Sembawang and the North’s best parks.
Parc Life’s close proximity to the North’s best parks makes planning weekend activities a breeze.
Besides Canberra Park, the next closest is Sembawang Park. Revamped with new playgrounds and a petanque court for lawn bowling, this park by the sea remains a favourite fishing spot. It is also popular among bird-watchers who look for Orioles, white-bellied sea eagles, and kites, just to name a few.
Sembawang Park’s large playground is modelled after a battleship with a rock climber, suspension bridge, caged tower and spiral tube slide.
Cyclists will be thrilled to know that the Northern-Explorer Loop, accessed via the 1.6km Canberra-Sembawang Park Connector, links them to quite a few parks around Singapore, including the coastal Sembawang Park, the Yishun Town Park, Upper Seletar Reservoir and even the Woodlands Waterfront Promenade, where the northern part of Singapore opens out into the Straits of Johor.
What’s unique about this area of Singapore are the Sembawang Park Connectors which act as a ecological bridge between areas of high biodiversity. You will spot fascinating trees like the 40m Singapore Durian tree or the endangered Seashore Mangosteen tree, and even interesting creatures like horseshoe crabs, apple snails and brightly coloured kingfishers along the 3km Sungei Simpang Kiri canal.
At Parc life, a relaxing stroll or bike ride might become daily activities.
While Woodlands Waterfront Park makes for a perfect evening stroll with your loved ones, the Northern Explorer loop and Yishun Park also provides the perfect weekend bike ride for your family with rich flora and fauna as a scenic backdrop. More unique adventures also surround Parc Life, like going on an adventurous search for the Sembawang Hotspring, the only hot spring in Singapore.
Discovered in 1909, water from Sembawang Hotspring is said to be rich in minerals.
3. Does your home have the right facilities?
Homebuyers often overlook the importance of quality facilities in their new home. Besides purchasing the unit, buyers are also purchasing the facilities that come with the condominium. From functional provisions, like basement parking to lifestyle facilities like spas and children play areas, look for the right facilities that will make everyday living more convenient and enjoyable.
For instance, aside from maximising views of the beautiful Canberra Park, Parc Life features a comprehensive range of unique spaces for communal bonding and even caters to the young, healthy and young at heart. The Poolside Cabanas, Gourmet Pavilion and Recreational Zone, are all different kinds of facilities that make hosting parties fun, convenient and easy at Parc Life.

Your kids would definitely love the various play-scapes around Parc Life too. The Kids Bubble Spa will have the young ones splashing around with other tykes in the estate, while the Kids Party Room, Children Adventure Play and Play Lawn are among the many other play-scapes designed just for the little ones.
From direct access to parks to creative play-scapes, Parc Life’s every feature encourages interactive play and provide opportunities for bonding between family and friends.
Parc Life is also designed for residents with different lifestyle needs. For example, fitness enthusiasts will be satisfied with the suite of facilities from the 50m Inifinity Pool overlooking Canberra Park, gymnasium and tennis court, to innovative spaces like the Wellness Pavilion and Foot Reflexology space.
What’s more, pet lovers get to enjoy the Pet Pavilion which offers facilities to pamper and groom their pets, while around Parc Life is abundant space to bond and play with other furry friends with communal activities organised for residents such as Pet Runs.

This spa is fitted with massage jets and spa pools to provide a perfectly natural yet rejuvenating therapy for residents. Let the healing power of water give you relief from common aches and pains after a hard day’s work as well as a good night’s sleep.
The Rain Spa simulates raindrops to provide a relaxing body massage. Both the soft pricking sensation of gentle raindrops falling on the skin and the soothing pitter-patter sounds of falling droplets form the perfect therapy.
This spa is part of an outdoor dining pavilion with BBQ facilities. Whether it’s a cosy catch-up or a pool party with friends, residents can enjoy this scenic spa venue that makes social gatherings playfully exciting!

Cozy Garden Spa
Perfect for couples on a lazy weekend or small families enjoying a quiet afternoon together, this spa makes the perfect spot for sharing laughs in an undisturbed tropical garden setting.
This one is designed just for the kids. Like having their own little kingdom of fun and relaxation, the Play Spa is part of the shallow, wading pool. It features soft jet sprays and different types of water “play” features.

4. Does your home provide enough space for play?
Is there enough space around the estate for your children to play? More than just a home, developers and architects understand the need for homes to be spaces that encourage communal bonding and inspire a healthier, happier lifestyle. Play fills us with happiness and laughter. It brings us closer together. It keeps us active, healthy and mentally strong. Imagine a home where play is every day, where balanced living makes for a haven away from the hustle and bustle.

Enough space between blocks not only creates better ventilation, it provides more natural light in every apartment. On top of the rich variety of play-scapes, Parc Life’s layout provides abundant grounds that residents can enjoy with their children and even grandchildren.
The blocks of Parc Life are generously spaced apart to give residents a sense of privacy and space.
Enjoy the best of the North with Parc Life, where beautiful parks and cycling routes are ample, where numerous top-notch schools and other amenities are in close proximity, and where job prospects are promising in the burgeoning Woodlands Regional Centre, North Coast Innovation Corridor and Northern region. Parc Life is also just a five minute walk away from Sun Plaza mall and seamlessly connected to Sembawang MRT.
So make sure you look for the right qualities in a home, after all, health and happiness is what makes a real home.
