MacRitchie is an amazing place for an active weekend - its lush green surroundings and a beautiful lake make it an ideal place for joggers, painters and even for picnics. There are a couple of hiking trails which are pretty good and one can also go Kayaking (just S$15 bucks for an hour!). Besides this - the main attraction at... More

The boardwalks for a pleasant stroll around the resevoir. The tracks seemed rather dull from a nature point of view and many joggers going past - it depends what you are after. We like to see the wildlife so the boardwalks were a perfect option for us for a couple of hours. Many monkeys, water monitors, lizards and terrapin's to... More

Amazing place for running & walking in the midst of all the nature. Very peaceful especially walking by the reservoir. Its a 10 km walk and took us almost 5 hours to complete the whole round, including the tree top walk. Great activity for a group of friends on the weekends.

If you like running, this is a great place with wonderful trails through the rain forest. The developed park is very nice. This park is more natural than the other developed parks, but if that is what you like, then you will really enjoy walking through this park.

Amazing hiking and a chance to walk through the rainforest. The trails or various lengths to easily find one to fit your fitness level. The plants are beautiful and monkeys are plentiful to see. I easily caught a cab there but had to walk a fair distance to get a bus or cab back.

Easy to get to (at the top end of Thomson Rd) and worth visiting. There are a number of different trails you can take so you can do a short walk or go in for the long haul! There is a brilliant tree top walk which takes a bit of getting to but affords amazing views over the reservoir. However... More

We visited MacRitchie Reservoir with couple of friends & their families. We had kids in the age group of 2-8 years in our group. It was a nice place. Not much crowded. There are so many things to do around this place. There is the famous Tree Top Walk which can take between 3-4 hours based on the chosen route.... More
