Sengkang (GPS: 1.38681, 103.89144) is a township to the northeast part of Singapore. It is located between Hougang and Punggol. The name Sengkang means "prosperous harbour", an ideal place for seafarers. It is the name of a fishing village that used to be located at Sungei Serangoon. In the old days, the people in Sengkang lived on fishing and planting of rubber and pepper. There were vegetable and pig farms as well as the jungle here. The two rivers flowing through the area are Sungei Serangoon and Sungei Punggol.

Sengkang New Town is a new township that was developed by the Housing and Development Board of Singapore, to create a "21st century township" out of what was a rural part of Singapore. The town is fed by the Tampines Expressway to the north. The new township was first conceptualised in 1994.
