From 4 April 2015, members of the public can access the Summit of Bukit Timah Nature Reserve (BTNR) through the Main Road on weekends. The Main Road leading to the Summit will be open to visitors from 7am to 6pm (with last entry to the Reserve at 5pm) on Saturdays and Sundays only. The Reserve will remain closed on weekdays and public holidays that do not fall on weekends.
Access to BTNR on weekends is via Hindhede Nature Park (Please see map of designated route below). The Reserve remains inaccessible through Dairy Farm Nature Park as trail repair works continue at Dairy Farm Loop. Members of the public are advised to keep to the designated route, and to take public transport when visiting the Reserve as there are limited parking lots on site due to ongoing restoration works. Restrooms will be in operation during opening hours on the weekends. Please click here for more information.
More about Bukit Timah Nature Reserve
Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is home to 40% of our nation’s flora and fauna and has been a favourite spot for those looking to get close to nature.
When the Reserve is fully open after restoration works are completed, you can visit the Reserve and journey back in time to the days before Sir Stamford Raffles arrived as you trek among the original vegetation and undisturbed tropical forest. Push yourself to the limits as you climb Singapore’s tallest hill on trails that wind through pockets of hill dipterocarp forest, not found anywhere else on the island.
Bukit Timah Nature Reserve was officially declared an ASEAN Heritage Park on 18 October 2011. Together with Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, it is now part of the prestigious regional network of 30 protected areas, forming the complete spectrum of representative ecosystems in ASEAN. It is also protected by the Parks & Trees Act 2005 for the conservation of our native biodiversity.
