Yishun in the past
How did the word 'Yishun' come about.
Nee Soon Road was officially named in 1950 by the Rural Board to facilitate postal services. It was named after a man called Lim Nee Soon who owned a large plot of land and several roads in the area. Although originally named Nee Soon, the name was subsequently romanized to its current appellation, to reflect the Singapore government's move to use proper Standard Chinese over the more popular and unrecognized Chinese dialects prominent amongst local dialect groups.

Yishun in the present
Other than that , I feel that there is a sense of belonging in the people living within the Yishun Ring Road Neighborhood. People around the neighborhood use the amenities and facilities there carefully without damaging them. I have interviewed the people living there and they said that they appreciate the amenities and facilities which they were allowed to use.
In conclusion, there are some places in the neighborhood that are very special to its resients. The Yishun Park is one of them. It is special to them as they can take morning strolls and get rejuvenated by the nature and everlasting greenery.
