Punggol Park (Chinese: 榜鹅公园) is a park located in Hougang, in the north-eastern part of Singapore. The park is 16 hectares in size, with a 5 ha lake. Kite flying is not allowed here due to the proximity of Paya Lebar Airbase.

The park has two distinctive zones: the "Southern Active Zone" where the features for major activities are provided, and the densely forested area in the north of the lake which forms the "Passive Zone".[1]

The plan for a park at Hougang was announced in November 1992. The park was named Punggol Park and the junction of Hougang Avenue 8 and Hougang Avenue 10 was chosen as the location.
