Rifle Range Nature Park as a buffer park


nature park network

Nature Parks, such as Rifle Range Nature Park, from the Central Nature Park Network, which buffers the Bukit Timah and Central Catchment Nature Reserves

What is the difference between a nature reserve, public park, and nature parks which buffer a nature reserve?

Nature reserves are protected areas of rich biodiversity that are representative sites of key indigenous ecosystems. To protect the native flora and fauna in these areas, there are restrictions on the activities that can be carried out in nature reserves.

Hence, some rustic parks, or nature parks such as Rifle Range Nature Park, have been established on the margins of nature reserves to act as green buffers, to reduce visitorship pressure on the reserves by providing an alternative venue for the public to enjoy nature-related activities. These parks are kept more natural and less manicured than other public parks.
