Popular Spot for Nature Lovers and Exercise Enthusiasts
A 12-hectare green haven bordering the country’s first reservoir and the Central Catchment Nature Reserve, the MacRitichie Reservoir Park is highly visited by nature lovers and sports enthusiasts. The park is a popular venue for schools and organisations to hold cross-country events, allowing participants to run through designated trails while embracing the wonders of the native biodiversity. The iconic MacRitchie bandstand continues to hold a special place in the hearts of many Singaporeans, and is often used to host performing arts presentations and solemnisation ceremonies.
The beauty and serenity
Take a morning or evening walk and stroll along the water’s edge to admire the beauty and serenity of the reservoir. Alternatively, enjoy a leisurely paddle through the calm waters or explore the forest and discover its inhabitants on the many trails. For those looking for an adrenaline rush, hike over to the TreeTop Walk. Featuring an amenities centre equipped with washrooms, showering facilities, lockers, drinking fountains and food kiosks, the reservoir deck is an ideal venue for warm-ups and cross-country events.
The park also features a green two-storey car park with 300 parking lots, with an upper deck which collects rainwater and channels them into a bioswale.
The MacRitchie Reservoir is one of the four reservoirs that bound Singapore’s nature reserves. Other reservoirs include the Lower Peirce Reservoir, the Upper Peirce Reservoir and the Upper Seletar Reservoir. Serving as water catchment areas, forests surrounding these reservoirs are protected from agricultural activities in order to ensure the quality of the water.
