One of the few places in Singapore that permit dogs not on leash, a variety of high octane canines can be seen sprinting all over this stretch. If not running, they can challenge their olfactory senses on unfamiliar whiffs. Their human companions are glad to take off the leash(es) and step back, I reckon. On weekends, there are several people jogging and cycling up and down the Green Corridor. There are several jogging tracks, of course, all over Singapore, that pass through manicured parks and are situated away from the traffic of expresseways. However, they tend to be somewhat sterile in the sense that they lack the original plant and animal inhabitants. On the other hand, The Green Corridor is really green with vegetation, brightly coloured birds, insects, dragonflies and butterflies. Schools nearby often organize a field trip here. Annually a quarter marathon is also held along one of the more interesting and beautiful stretches of The Green Corridor. The 10.5km course starts at the historic Tanjong Pagar Rail Station and winds its way to finish at the old Bukit Timah Rail Station.
