Windsor Nature Park
Located off Venus Drive at the Upper Thomson area, the 75-hectare Windsor Nature Park is a green buffer for the Central Catchment Nature Reserve.
Visitors can explore new trails including the specially curated Hanguana Trail and the Drongo Trail. The Hanguana Trail is lined with rare native plants, some of which are named after Singapore. The Drongo Trail features a sub-canopy walk where visitors can catch a glimpse of the fauna that are found under the canopy level, in addition to examining the understorey of the regenerating secondary forest.
Discover other highlights of Windsor Nature Park such as a marsh habitat and several freshwater streams by hiking on the restored trails and new boardwalks. Visitors can also join workshops to learn about Singapore’s natural heritage and ongoing biodiversity conservation efforts at the visitor pavilion.

- The Shinto Shrine is located within a core nature conservation area of the Central Catchment Nature Reserve. This area is closed to the public. There are no designated trails to the Shrine. For their own safety, visitors should stay on the designated trails to avoid becoming lost in the forest. This nature reserve is home to numerous species of endangered native flora and fauna. Human activity in this area can affect animal movement, or result in trampling on endangered plant saplings. Entering or leaving any part of a nature reserve which is closed is an offence under the Parks and Trees Regulations which carries a penalty of a fine of up to $2,000. We seek your co-operation to stay on the designated trails.
