Directions to MacRitchie Reservoir
The MacRitchie Reservoir primarily serves as water catchment and all agriculture or industry is banned in the vicinity to ensure the highest possible quality of water. With three more reservoirs nearby, this area is the green heart of Singapore and an oasis for those wanting to escape from the forever-bustling city life. No wonder it is one of the most popular locations for nature lovers, runners and outdoor enthusiasts.
The 10-15km trail around the reservoir, depending which route you follow, is partly wooden paved along the shore and develops into a simple yet well maintained dirt track in the jungle. Families and mature travelers might prefer the 3-4km long stroll around the water's edge while those seeking more of a thrill can head for the tree top walk offering fantastic views of the nearby Peirce Reservoir. The suspended bridge is neither for the heart-fainted nor for those with fear of heights yet is perfectly maintained and secured with a one-way system.
With flourishing forests, a wild jungle atmosphere, large clans of cheeky monkey families and smaller animals such as colorful birds, wild bee hives and all sorts of spiders, snakes, snails and beetles, it is an attraction where young and old can connect with nature and enjoy a relaxing time.
Facilities of the park include toilets, showers, lockers, drinking fountains, a food court and a two-story carpark with 300 parking lots. The upper deck collects rain channeled into a bioswale that removes pollution.
The reservoir was constructed in 1867 when demand for water grew beyond the capacity of ox-drawn water carts. Originally named Thomson Road Reservoir, it became MacRitchie Reservoir in 1907 after James MacRitchie redesigned and built the reservoir that it is today.
