Kent Ridge Park

West & Southwest Singapore

This park commands views over the port and the southern islands and is usually very quiet. The canopy walk will take you through a treetop boardwalk with the call of crickets your only companion. Stop by Reflections at Bukit Chandu en route. Part of the Southern Ridges.
