Outdoor activities in Singapore City
Encompassing the MacRitchie and Lower and Upper Peirce Reservoir parks, this 2000-hectare area is Singapore’s largest nature reserve. The area is criss-crossed by a series of trails, ranging from short boardwalks around the reservoirs to long treks through the forest. The most popular entry point to this precious wilderness is the MacRitchie Reservoir, a delightful, partly manicured park wrapped around the water’s edge, where you can rent a kayak, and get a bite to eat at the small hilltop food centre overlooking the water and a bizarre zigzagging pontoon bridge. It’s also the starting point for some fairly arduous forest walks.
