No free carparking rule at public parks – Has it hurt park goers?

In July last year NParks ruffled the feathers of some park goers with the announcement that car-parking will no longer be free in popular public parks across Singapore.
The move was meant to regulate usage and prevent abuse at parks serving a large number of users said NParks.
“In recent years, NParks has been receiving complaints on the constant misuse of parking spaces in the above parks, where parking spaces were taken up for extended periods of time by non-park users.” said NParks director of parks Chia Seng Jiang then.
Car parking charges at the popular parks were set at $1 an hour, at all times of the day.
Some regular park-goers at that time, expressed concern that the new charges could discourage people, especially the elderly and handicapped, from visiting the parks often.
Receiving such feedback on parking charges at public parks, NParks promised that it will monitor the situation at these carparks.
One Facebook user Dennis Khew today expressed frustration at having to pay to use the carparks in Pasir Ris Park when the carpark is empty.

Pasir Ris Park. Used to be free parking. Now charging by ERP. Empty. TQ Nparks. #whiteelephantsinsingapore
