Escape the hustle of the city to this reservoir with a nature trail, lake and a TreeTop walk. Various outdoor activities like canoeing.

The reservoir felt serene and quiet. Not very crowded when we visited. Lovely birds and monkey around the area. Must go again.

Wonderful natural attraction and I love the jogging trail which cuts through the forest. Female joggers might want to bring a friend along though.

It's incredible that such a massive nature reserve is within the city of Singapore! Very easy to get to on the MRT, the signage on what is where is clear and easy to follow, BUT, the distances to the treetop walk are a little deceiving....More

Always wanted to start exercising again. And my hubby decided to bring me there for a morning stroll. It has been ages since I last come back but the weather was excellent and the walk is enjoyable.

Great walking trail that includes a suspension bridge and lot's of steps to really give you a good work out as well as a quiet and peaceful walk in lovely surroundings. A great place for a morning walk but ensure that you take some water...More

Not really - whilst flat - its not the easiest place to get to from hotel areas of Singapore. Would recommend the botanical gardens and orchid gardens within.

It’s a suitable place for morning runs. Wonderfully peaceful and serene to jog or walk around the grounds. Always better in the morning or evening to avoid the scorching heat in this region.
