This new nature park feels like something out of a fairyland – cross a stone path, take a walk on a bridge surrounded by nature, and hang out on a viewing deck 31 metres in the sky. With a rustic, tranquil atmosphere, the Rifle Range Nature Park is the perfect place to unwind.

🕦 7am—7pm (Mon to Sun)

Stroll through a cool glasshouse as you ‘enter’ a tropical montane forest, where you’ll feel like you’re in the mountains on a foggy day. The National Orchid Garden has recently revamped its offerings, including a bromeliad walk, a secret ravine, and more floral experiences to discover.

If you’re a trail buff, this one’s for you. The Khatib Nature Corridor has 80 kilometres of unique nature trails, and 150 hectares of greenery. Plenty of new nature parks are in the works, and we’re especially looking forward to visiting the Miltonia Nature Park (think rivers, streams, and walking on a riverbank)!

With panoramic views of the cliffside, surrounded by water, this one is a must-see. If you’re lucky, you can even spot rare birds like the Barred-Eagle Owl and more wildlife that live in the quarry!
