Walked along this wooden boardwalk, running alongside the water, right to the end. Despite hearing traffic nearby and overlooked by high buildings you still feel close to nature. I've done this nice level walk a couple of times and each time I've seen the monkeys come down to the waters edge, terrapins and a large lizard type creature in the... More

Try going early in the morning just as the sun rises to avoid the heat. Don't bring any plastic bags or food as the monkeys will attack you for them (saw this happen).

Yes, yes... like the other reviews say it IS a tranquil spot, and it has a good boardwalk for walkers and joggers alike. There are also some water sports and it is a quite popular place on weekends (even at 7am when the serious runners amass in their little groups, ready for their weekly long run). I think MacRitchie (and... More

The Macritchie Resevoir is a beautiful park. There is a walk by the lake on thin wooden planks. If you are lucky you may be able to see an animal or two crawling out of the neighbouring forest. The lake is not very deep and the water is clear enough for you to see the bottom. Despite the weather the... More

Interesting area in Singapore if you want respite from the crowds. I hired a car with driver to take me round the island and this was one of the spots I was taken and it is very pretty. Take an unbrella for protection from the sun as it is quite open.

A wonderful place for scenic run, walk or just to chill with family, friends and love ones. Nature lovers will find this the ideal place to enjoy the tranquility and greenery. I enjoy the trail run around 6km and look forward to the scenery and fun each time. Highly recommend place for nature lovers!
