Overview

A short trip from the city center lies the serenity of MacRitchie Reservoir, part of Singapore’s water catchment system that captures rain water to help supply the island’s growing population. Trails surround the park, which has an upgraded visitor’s center featuring a café, restrooms and information station. The best views are from the TreeTop Walk, a 250-meter suspension bridge across the rainforest canopy, which can be accessed along the seven-kilometer Venus Loop. Wear hiking shoes and bring water.

The view is majestic especially from Jelutong tower and the suspension bridge. More than recommended!

MacRitchie is one of the several close to nature places in SIngapore- a side of the city state which tourists often ignore. Recommended for long morning walks/jogs and being one with nature

This place is well maintained. A good place to run or walk amidst the lush forest. You can run along the reservoir on wooden planks or run inside the forest. monkeys are everywhere.

Love the fresh air and greenery. A great place to get away from the traffic and high rise building. You can spend the whole morning walking and enjoy the fresh, crisp air.

You can spend hours exploring this beautiful place. There is so much green that you will be surprised. Don't miss out the tree top trail. It closes at 17:45, and carpark closes at 19:00.

This is a great place to explore the last remaining bits of (mostly) untouched djungle in Singapore. Great paths, some quite steep, amongst the trees. We saw monkeys and bushbabies and listened to the amazingly loud sounds of cicadas. Don't take food or water with...More

I went there with reasonable expectations. The walk is though short, worth taking through the bushes and trees. One can hear the weird sounds which is a mix of birds, insects like crickets, etc, but the walk is worth taking once.

Came here with my family a couple of weeks ago for a walk and the path along the reservoir is very beautiful. It helps that in most of the trails, you are sheltered from the sunshine by the tall trees so despite the hot weather,...More

Yes trail is open on Monday but not the treetop section. You can easily do the trail and skip that section. Hope this helps and was fast enough.
