‘Autumn’ in Singapore at East Coast Park

SINGAPORE — We might not have the four seasons in Singapore, but it certainly looks like autumn in parts of East Coast Park.

SINGAPORE — We might not have the four seasons in Singapore, but it certainly looks like autumn in parts of East Coast Park.

A post on the National Parks Board (NParks) Facebook page earlier today (Nov 13) shared some images of trees covered in red and yellow leaves, reminiscent of autumnal trees in the northern hemisphere.

The Ketapang, or Sea Almond trees, are located at Area D, and in the post NParks said that “the leaves might shed soon”, just like trees in the autumn time.

The NParks added that these coastal trees native to Singapore, have glossy leaves that turn from dark red to yellow before shedding. After shedding, the leaves grow back, forming a purplish foliage.

With an edible fruit pulp and a kernel that tastes similar to almonds, hence the name Sea Almond, it’ll be hard to miss these trees if you happen to be in the area.

NParks is also encouraging Singaporeans to share their photos with the hashtag, #sgautumn.
