Very Good Reservoir

I really love the MacRitchie Reservoir! It is full of beautiful animals and they have a great Park! But to do the Tree Top walk it takes 6 hours which is unacceptable.

My friend took me here for a walk with his dog. Beautifully maintained and very natural BUT as a dog lover, very disappointed to see keep his dog on the lead. Surely areas can be designated for dogs to run free?

Magnificent scenic spot in the city. Wonderful walks in the lish tropical forests or along the boardwalk next to the water. The Treetops trail is a sturdy 5km walk to reach - dont underestimate the time or effort required. I planned the 11km circular route only to discover after 4km thatbthe path is closed until end April 2017. I retraced... More

Came here again today for another visit and this time decided to hire a canoe at $15 for the hour. Unfortunately there's only a small part of the reservoir which is permitted for canoes (as distinct from more serious kayakers), but it was still good fun and the kids seemed to like the experience. It's worth bringing a change of... More

It is an amazing place to connect with Nature. Very soothing. Very relaxing. Also, a good place to get away from everything, not to mention, excersize. I would highly recommend it here!

We walked from Lornie Road and inside the park on the trail around the reservoir... Spotted the popular 4-legged snake as well. A very peaceful place! It's a must-go place if you have good weather and a couple of hours at hand!

MacRitchie Reservoir has been my favourite place for some trail-running since a few years back, as you get good views while running, and there are many trails you can choose from when you run. For those who do not fancy running, you can simply take a long walk there, and hike up to the TreeTop walk, which is really popular... More

Awesome little patch to spend the early morning surrounded by wild wetland and forest birds, plantain squirrel, macaques and Malayan water monitors.

This is a huge nature reserve as well as a reservoir and is suitable for both young and old to enjoy. There's walking trail as well and a few eateries and restaurants.
