Trails surround the park, which has an upgraded visitor’s center featuring a café, restrooms and information station. The best views are from the TreeTop Walk, a 250-meter suspension bridge across the rainforest canopy, which can be accessed along the seven-kilometer Venus Loop. Wear hiking shoes and bring water. « less

If you don't mind carrying a lot of foods and drinks with you while hiking/strolling/exploring this place then his place is for you then. By the way, a lot of monkeys are running around. They are nice and funny but be careful of course. They are still animals.

If you love hiking/running this is the place to go. Even though it is right within the city you won't feel like you are. Beautifully kept trails. Plan on a few hours if your are only walking the full loop. Half that if you run it. Keep in mind there are a few good hill climbs and stairs especially if... More

Acutally, i was expecting something so great ! The monkeys are really funny (they stole our lunch) but if you are going inside the trail, then there is nothing to see, only wood, ... The Treee Top Walk isnt that good, I really preferred Pulau Ubin !

There's no mountains in here, only rugged trails, and the occasional monkeys. The nature trail is within a Reservoir and you can choose different trails (in time duration & intensity). One of the highlight is the "Treetop walk"-a suspension bridge. Don't take the trail leading to it if you are afraid of heights! (there's no turning back). Bring water, some... More

Thoroughly enjoyed, do carry lots of water/food as there are no shops. There a toilets and a water fountain but I saw this once in a few hours on the trail. Lots of monkeys and other animals. Was a little scared by all the 'beware of snakes' signs but we didn't see any. We got a taxi there and back... More

If you like nature and need to get away from the concrete jungle, I highly recommend MacRitchie Reservoir. This reservoir and park are centrally located and easy to get to. Either get in a taxi or take the Circle Line of the MRT to Caldecott. It is a short 10-15 minute walk from the MRT. There are several options for... More

If you are looking for a place to have a nice evening stroll or run, you can visit this nature park which also enclosed the Macritchie Reservoir. If you are up for a long walk, you can walk along the perimeter of the reservoir edge, along the broadwalk and some parts are nature trails. There is also a cafe and... More

I wanted to see some wildlife but am not a fan of animals in captivity so wished to avoid the Night Safari. My hostel (Tree In Lodge) recommended this as they knew I am a keen walker and they said that there was a high likelihood of seeing wild monkeys and monitor lizards - both of which I saw! The...

After a week of working non-stop in SGP, It was great to escape and do the MacRitchie Nature trail and the tree top walk. I must have had a good pace because I completed the trail in shorter time than indicated, but above all, I was at the start at 7h30am with plenty of water. I wouldn't dare try this... More
