Part of Bukit Timah nature reserve open to public on weekends from April 4

Members of the public will have access to parts of the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve (BTNR) on weekends from April 4, the National Parks Board (NParks) said in a statement on Wednesday.

This follows the completion of phase one of restoration works at the BTNR.

The public may access the BTNR via Hindhede Nature Park every weekend.

From 7am to 6pm, the main road leading to the summit of BTNR will be open to visitors. Last admission to the Reserve is at 5pm.

When embarking on the Summit Path trail, visitors may now choose their level of challenge, as it features steps of two different heights.

NParks said that members of the public should keep to the designated route when visiting the reserve. Visitors are also advised to take public transport as there are limited parking lots at the site.

Restrooms will be in operation during the weekend opening hours.

The reserve will remain closed on weekdays and public holidays that do not fall on weekends to facilitate phase two of restoration works.

Visitors can also sign up for free guided walks at alternative locations such as Bukit Batok Nature Park and Singapore quarry while BTNR undergoes restoration works.

These guided walks will take place once a month and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
