In addition to the interesting walks through the jungle (which aren't so suitable for young children, unless you're willing to carry them) the walk near the reservoir on the established paths is worth a look. Easy enough to push a pram along, or for kids to ride scooters. Often there are monkeys to be seen, and the odd turtle or... More

HSBC Tree Top Trail is the best trail to do when going for first time. Do kayaking on the waters just before start of trail. It is very cheap and the kayak boats are really stable.

It's as lovely a place for a family stroll as it is for a nice trail run. Shady and well-kept with enough visitors and hardly ever too crowded. If you're lucky you'll spot families of monkeys who live all over the reservoir. They're usually pretty harmless unless they notice you carrying food (or what appears to be food). When/if you...

This little nature reserve ain't that little at all with the vast bio-diversity. From monkeys that you may encounter playing about, to the reptilian sorts, or those in flight to those that swim. This nature reserve has them all. You won't feel like you are in the city. A nice respite of calm and tranquility just minutes away from the... More

After we did the MacRitchie nature trail we stopped off and walked round parts of the Reservoir because 11km doing the trail wasn't enough ha! Really lovely.

Pleasant and cool , outdoor walk or run is suitable for this reservoir. Relax and close to nature, it is a good start of the day with a walk round the trail. Can see monkeys sometimes swinging from tree to tree.

I always love going to Maritchie Reservoir for a good tree top walk calories sweat out! However please avoid going on Mondays as the OCBC Suspension bridge will be closed. Aside from that, try not to bring bags that can be seen through especially is you are bringing snacks in it. The monkeys around are very intelligent and have attempted... More

A wonderful place for people who love nature and just wanting to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Go to the HSBC treetop walk for a bird's eye view of the nature reserve.

Urban parks are always such a nice break from the concrete jungles of big cities. MacRitchie Reservoir is a beautiful spot for a sunny afternoon, not far from downtown and easily accessed by short cab ride or transit hop. The walkways are well-maintained, level and easy for most people. Be prepared for the monkeys though, if you're packing food they... More

A very cool and refreshing place for a morning jog if you are staying in the Northern part of this island. The scenery and natural view around it is nice but do beware of the mosquitoes that might be anywhere. Do not feed the monkey as well.
