The Forest Walk meanders through some 50 metres through the secondary forest of Telok Blangah Hill and connects to Alexandra Arch.
There are two trails on the Forest Walk (just cross over from Carpark 3 to get on either trail) – the Elevated Walkway and the Earth trail.
The Elevated Walkway, accessed by the metal bridge, offers you the experience of walking through the secondary forest of Telok Blangah Hill at eye-level with the forest canopy. This is an excellent platform for spotting birds, dragonflies and butterflies. While on the Elevated Walkway, keep a lookout for a concrete slope. Due to continuous heavy downpour, a landslide occurred on the slope in Oct 2011. For the safety of visitors, the slope has been stabilised with concrete to prevent further erosion.
If you prefer a more rugged experience and hanker after a closer experience with wildlife in the area, embark on the Earth Trail. Steps have been built at some parts of the trail in view of the steep terrain.
The dense secondary forest found here, the Adinandra Belukar, is home to Singapore’s rich biodiversity.
Difficulty level: easy (Elevated walkway), moderate (Earth trail)
Walking time: 20 min
Admire the beautiful skyline as you stroll across this 274 metre-long pedestrian bridge that spans Henderson Road to connect Mount Faber Park to Telok Blangah Hill Park. At 36m above Henderson Road, Henderson Waves is the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore.
The bridge is also worth visiting for its artistic, distinctive wave-like structure consisting of a series of undulating curved "ribs". These “ribs” also double up as alcoves providing shelter to the public.
Joggers, couples and families with children are a common sight on Henderson Waves during weekends. The bridge has also become a popular photography location in recent months for wedding couples posing against the scenic skyline.
The bridge takes on a different look at night, with the wave-form illuminated with attractive LED light from 7pm to 2am daily.
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.
