Bukit Batok Nature Park
Developed on an abandoned quarry site in 1988, Bukit Batok Nature Park features stunning views and crystal clear waters. Serene and tranquil, it is an ideal place for a peaceful nature walk.
Take a leisurely stroll on the meandering footpaths that run through the secondary forest and admire the beauty of the lush greenery. Alternatively, go for a run on the park’s undulating terrain for an invigorating workout or hike through the forest and enjoy the serene ambience of the surroundings.
Climb the look-out points that reach more than 10 storeys high for stunning views of the quarry. Don’t forget to stop by the park’s entrance to marvel at the picturesque pond that lies at the foot of a high cliff wall. The pond runs deep and still – a relic from the mining days of the region. Pay tribute to the soldiers and victims of World War II at the memorial plaque situated within the park. During World War II, the Japanese selected the Lorong Sesuai site as a memorial for the soldiers who died. All that remains are two pillars and 120 concrete steps leading up to a transmission tower. Read about the significance and meaning of the location on the memorial plaque that lies at the foot of the stairs.
