Reservoir Parks

There are 17 reservoirs in Singapore, and there are a few of them that are nestled in surrounding parks that offer fresh environments for jogging and exercising with breathtaking views.

The most popular among them are the Lower Peirce Reservoir Parks, the Upper Peirce Reservoir Park, MacRitchie Reservoir Park for their more central locations.

The Lower Peirce Reservoir was formerly known as the Peirce Reservoir, and is located near to the Upper Peirce Reservoir & the MacRitchie Reservoir. Spanning 6 hectares in size, the Lower Peirce Reservoir Park features a 900m- long boardwalk that leads trekkers and visitors through a forest that also function as a water catchment area for the four reservoirs, namely Lower & Upper Peirce Reservoirs, MacRitchie Reservoirs and Upper Seletar Reservoir. Together, the central vegetation bounded by these reservoirs form the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve in Singapore.

Of the same 6 hectares in size as the Lower Peirce Reservoir Park, the Upper Peirce Reservoir is another popular spot for joggers and runners because of its tranquility, water views and fresh air dew in the morning. It shares the same secondary forest area with Lower Peirce Reservoir Park as the water catchment region.

The MacRitchie Reservoir is Singapore’s oldest reservoir but has not loses its appeal to visitors. Its more than one square kilometres lush primary forest area is what mainly attracts nature lovers here. Apart from the lush greenery of trees and plants, MacRitchie Reservoir Park also has an extensive network of boardwalks fringing the reservoir and walking trails through the forest. There is also a popular highlight of this place and a favourite spot for picture taking for tourists – a zig-zag bridge leading to a performing arts pavilion overlooking the scenic reservoir view.
