Message from Singapore Tourism Board
A trek along The Southern Ridges brings visitors to five other parks - Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park, HortPark, Kent Ridge Park and the Labrador Nature Reserve. Spread over 10km of green and open spaces, a hike through The Southern Ridges takes visitors to five local parks which are linked by park connectors. As part of the journey, travellers cross bridges through the Adinandra Belukar, a distinct secondary forest, and can observe a variety of birds. Henderson Waves is another highlight of the walk. Its Singapore’s highest pedestrian bridge is a marvel during nightfall - it is illuminated with LED lighting. Trekkers can enjoy panoramic views of lush greenery, sights and sounds of wildlife.
