If your kids love dinosaurs they are in for a treat! Changi Jurassic Mile is Singapore’s newest and largest permanent outdoor display of 20 different life-sized dinosaurs (one dinosaur is 5 metres tall!). This one kilometre dino-themed cycling and jogging track along the 3.5km Changi Airport Connector path links the Jewel Changi Airport to East Coast Park and the Park Connector Network (PCN).
So what awaits at Changi Jurassic Mile? Keep your eyes peeled for a towering Tyrannosaurus Rex and then spot the gigantic dinosaur eggs. Get your kids to find the huge Brontosaurus and the bright blue Velociraptors. Handy information panels show facts about these dinosaurs along that path while outdoor speakers play safari-themed music for the compete Jurassic Park style experience.
Cycling along Changi Airport Connector
If your little ones can’t manage a one kilometre walk you can rent bicycles and make a cycling trip out of the experience. Kids bikes are available to rent from $6/hr and adult bikes from $8/hr from GoCycling’s newest outlet at HUB & SPOKE near Terminal 2 at the beginning of the Changi Airport Connector. You can return the bikes at any of the seven other GoCycling outlets around Singapore. You’ll find some at Changi Beach Park and East Coast Park too. You can even cycle all the way up to Coney Island and Jurong Lake Gardens.

Getting to Changi Jurassic Mile
Changi Jurassic Mile is accessible via public transport, or via the Changi Coastal Park Connector Extension from East Coast Park. From the Changi Airport MRT and bus stations, follow the on-ground signage in the direction of Terminal 2. If you are arriving by car, you can park at the HUB & SPOKE Car Park located directly opposite HUB & SPOKE. Do be warned however that it is a walk of 2 km from HUB & SPOKE car park to the start of Jurassic Mile! So you may want to bring scooters or cycle instead. We have heard that it may be a closer walk if you park at T4.
