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!

A really lovely place to get away from it all. If you want a walk in greenery then this is the place. Just to chill and get away from the constant noise of the city.

Have been going for a long walk with friends at least twice a month at McRitchie Reservoir Park. Weekday walks will be best if you enjoy the peace and serenity of the trails. You can enjoy the 'natural music' coming from the surtounding habitats. The rustling of the trees, the birds chirping, the monkeys chattering. If you plan to reach... More
