Sport Singapore announces plans for new Kallang sport and youth hub

Sport Singapore announces plans for new Kallang sport and youth hub
August 13, 2019

Sport Singapore has announced plans to create a new location for community and elite sport in the Kallang area adjacent to the Singapore Sports Hub.

The Kallang Alive precinct proposes a new velodrome and speed-climbing wall, along with the upcoming Kallang Football Hub and new Kallang Tennis Centre, to add vibrancy to the Kallang area and encourage community sport participation.

Sport Singapore, in consultation with other agencies, is looking into redeveloping the Kallang Theatre into an integrated sport entertainment and lifestyle hub, proposing that the waterfront space along Jalan Benaan Kapal will also be transformed into a green community space while another project, called the Alive Gateway and Loop, will tie in key attractions via a walking and cycling path which links to the Park Connector Network.

Kallang Alive is part of Sports Singapore's 15 recommendations for Vision 2030, which was first announced seven years ago.

The 15 recommendations are spread across eight key focus areas. They are: children, youth and families; athletes, coaches and national sports associations; vulnerable persons with disabilities; working adults; seniors; sports industry; technology and sports infrastructure.

The new recommendations are the result of a year-long review by the national sports agency to ensure the masterplan remains relevant to the changing needs and demands of Singaporeans.

Announcing the project, Sport Singapore Chief Executive Lim Teck Yin advised "Vision 2030 was launched with the belief that sport will have an increasingly significant role to play in nation building and Singapore's future.

"Today, the success from the collective effort of everyone in the sport ecosystem can be witnessed daily through the programmes and physical activity at our sports centres and beyond."
