Other than Punggol New Town, the river flows through 7 other towns in the late 1990s and early 2000s, much of the river banks along Sungei Punggol have since been reclaimed and the river canalised. Since 2011, it is now part of the Punggol Reservoir.
To better serve the recreational needs of the residents of Sengkang New Town, a network of green connectors have been built along the banks of Sungei Punggol. These connectors link the housing precincts to neighbourhood parks, the town park and Sengkang Sports and Recreational Centre in the new town. These park connectors are also linked to the Coney Island Park in Punggol New Town and the existing Punggol Park in Hougang.
An artificial man-made floating island has been constructed in the middle of the river in the Sengkang part of the river.
