Tampines Eco Green used to be covered with mud and narrow pathways, and NEA has since upgraded the ground to be flat and easier to walk on. The sign at Tampines Eco Green is made with wood, which blends into the surroundings, making it hard for people to notice that there is actually a park there.
However, for those that know about Tampines Eco Green, the rich wildlife at Tampines Eco Green has attracted them to visit. Many local birdwatchers go there to snap photos of some cool birds like the Blue-capped Cordon-Bleu.
