MacRitchie Reservoir Park
Ever wanted to know more about the biodiversity and purpose of forests in Singapore?
Perhaps you need an extra pair of eyes to spot those uncommon animals and plants?
Or maybe just you want a morning away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Whatever your purpose, the BES Drongos is proud to take you on a free guided walk into our biggest nature reserve, as we share with you about the history and relevance of Macritchie, a story our forests would tell if they could speak.
Just sign up, show up and let us do the rest.
Set foot on the Prunus Trail, a boardwalk trail (part of the longer Prunus-Petai Trail) at the east end of Macritchie Reservoir Park. The trail consists of a gravel path and a boardwalk, which is relatively level and can be walked by people of all ages.
Length: Approx. 2km
Duration: 2 hours
Meeting Time: 8.45am (We begin promptly at 9am.)
Meeting Place: Mushroom Cafe at the toilet hut near the entrance of Macritchie Reservoir Park. The nearest bus stop is MacRitchie Reservoir, served by buses 52, 74, 130, 132, 162, 162M, 163, 165, 166, 167, 852, 855. It is also within walking distance from Caldecott MRT station.
