Show Consideration for Others
Obtain a permit before holding your BBQ or camp at any of our designated campsites. Click to apply for a camping permit or BBQ permit or apply at any AXS machines island wide.
Stay on track. If you are jogging, skating, cycling or using a personal mobility device, please stay on the designated tracks. Please keep left so as to not obstruct fellow park-goers.
Show care and consideration when using our park facilities. The amenities, such as the open lawns, shelters and passageways, are meant for everyone. Help us keep our park facilities in pristine condition for all to enjoy.
Keep noise levels low. Appreciate the sounds of nature and respect other park goers by keeping noise levels low. Only then can our parks and the peaceful silence of nature be fully enjoyed and appreciated by everyone.
Be a responsible pet owner. In order to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all, kindly put your furry friends on leash and muzzle them if necessary. Most importantly, please take ownership and clean up after your pet.
Park where you should. Please follow parking directions, and park your vehicles only at designated lots. Be gracious and leave the accessible lots for those who truly need them. (See NCSS’s website for more information).
Look out for 'No Flying' signs in our parks and Nature Reserves. The flying of drones is allowed in most parks except for those areas which are designated as 'No Flying' zones by signs, e.g in the Singapore Botanic Gardens and the Nature Reserves. For the safety of others and to protect our biodiversity, please fly your drones in a safe and responsible manner (see CAAS' website for more information).
Do not smoke. Smoking is prohibited at covered spaces, shelters, toilets, playgrounds, fitness corners, carparks, as well as in areas where no-smoking signs have been installed, including the smoke-free parks and Nature Reserves. Let's keep our Nature Reserves, parks and gardens smoke-free for everyone to enjoy. (See NEA’s website for more information).
Help Conserve our Environment
Dispose waste in a proper manner. Keeping our parks clean is everyone’s responsibility. Littering not only spoil the beauty of our parks, they may also harm the animals. Kindly throw your litter at the designated bins located around our parks.
Help reduce waste. Instead of using one brochure each, do consider sharing them when moving about in a group. Afterwards, do return the brochures in a good condition for others to use.
Stay on designated trails. Avoid stepping off track while on our nature trails. By stepping off the trails, you risk disturbing and trampling on our flora and fauna.
Respect our Flora and Fauna
Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but photographs. Our parks are shared spaces for all to enjoy. Do not disturb any wildlife. Let our beautiful flora and fauna thrive in their natural habitats.
Maintain a distance away from wildlife. Do resist the temptation to follow or approach any wildlife. Appreciate the wildlife from afar and maintain a safe distance from them. Kindly refrain from feeding them as this can affect their health and alter their natural behaviour.
Respect the eco-system. Please refrain from feeding native or stray animals, or releasing animals into our parks and nature reserves. Doing so may upset our fragile eco-system and cause more harm than good.
Observe the opening and closing times. Our nature reserves and most nature parks (Dairy Farm, Chestnut, Hindhede, Kranji Marshes, Windsor) are closed at night to allow our native fauna, many of which are nocturnal, to feed and breed without being interrupted by human activity. Let's do our part to ensure a conducive environment for endangered native biodiversity.
Keep our nature reserves a safe haven for our native biodiversity. Dogs are known to scent mark places they visit thus affecting the movement of native animals and they may also bark at or otherwise harass native animals found within the reserves. Do not bring dogs to these nature reserves and parks: Central Catchment Nature Reserve, Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Kranji Marshes, Labrador Nature Reserve, Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Upper Peirce Reservoir Park, Upper Seletar Reservoir Park, Sungei Buloh Wetlands Extension Park, Windsor Nature Park , Thomson Nature Park, Singapore Botanic Gardens (Mingxin Foundation Rambler’s Ridge at Gallop Extension and The Learning Forest) and all trails leading into the nature reserves, including trails in MacRitchie and Lower Peirce trail, the Upper Peirce Reservoir Park access road, the pipeline at Bukit Timah, the Bukit Timah Mountain Biking Trail and the Chestnut-Gangsa Biking Trail.
