Indulge in the beauty of the secondary forests at the fringes of Telok Blangah Hill Park by trekking the Forest Walk – a 1.3-kilometre-long elevated walkway that links HortPark to Telok Blangah Hill Park, or get up close and personal with the forest understory vegetation by heading through Earth Trail. Complete your visit to Telok Blangah Hill Park by crossing the Henderson Waves to Mount Faber Park. This 274m long structure is the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore, and is frequently visited for its artistic, distinctive wave-like structure consisting of a series of undulating curved 'ribs'.
Another highlight is the Terrace Garden. A popular spot for wedding couples, Terrace Garden consists of a series of semi-circular terraces situated at the top of the park. From here, you will be able to enjoy a breath-taking 360-degree view of Singapore.
Come in the morning or evening, and join the residents of the nearby neighbourhoods for their exercises such as taiqi and jogging. If you are looking for an outdoor picnic, the park is well equipped with picnic tables and shaded by magnificent tall trees such as Eugenia, Alstonia and Rain trees.
Sit back and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, and watch the birds, squirrels and butterflies in their natural surroundings.
Aptly themed 'Recapturing the Past Splendour', Telok Blangah Hill Park has a history that few other parks can boast. This park has long been a place of gathering for trading communities since the early nineteenth century. The prosperity of the traders is symbolised by the Alkaff Mansion, an elegant colonial bungalow built by a family of Arab Traders, which used to host grand parties for the social elite.
Telok Blangah Hill Park is part of the Southern Ridges, which also comprises Mount Faber Park, HortPark, Kent Ridge Park and Labrador Nature Reserve.
