Place is very scenic with lots of nature and monkeys. Even in extreme heat, the whole trails are coverable. the reservoir itself is so beautifully made and we always relish this place...

It has always been a great place for my running routine, it's a big place to do your running and look at the scenery, try it out someday!

A piece of unspoiled nature. We could hardly believe this was within a city state. We strolled the edge of the reservoir, hiked the 16 km trail through Treetop Walk - the Macritchie Nature Trails are right next to the reservoir. Wild monkeys (uninterested in humans, yay!), giant lizards, litter-free, plenty of shadow beneath trees. Near the reservoir is also... More

Normally I walk at the Botanic Gardens, this time I joined my wife at MacRitchie and it was a great change...we took the harder rough trail course for about 8 km and although not so much to see was a really good workout...they also have the flatter boardwalk trail which I will try next time.. Can recommend as it nicely... More

Really good for running. We did the 11 km which goes around the edge. Some sections a bit challenging to run because of the uneven ground.

Good place to really relax and bring yourself closer to mother nature... But do refrain from feeding the wild monkeys as they will bother you if you feed... lol

MacRitchie is one of those places in Singapore that I wish to go again and again. A large reservoir surrounded by plenty of trees and greenery and a long, never ending trail to walk through the forest is like a treasure box, more you explore, the more you get. Best to visit on non-sunny days geared with sports shoes, water... More
