The Bukit Batok Nature Park (BBNP) is a quiet, serene park near the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. The major highlight of the lush park is the quarry-turned-pond located right at the entrance. The 36-hectare park is perfect for jogging, walking or biking on the trails surrounded by the lush green beauty of the secondary forest. Many also prefer exercising at Bukit Batok Nature Park as it contains fitness areas and many bike trails of varying difficulty.
Bukit Batok means Coughing Hill in Malay and the park was given this name when it was formed in 1988, as it was made around an abandoned quarry that was once used to dig up granite. Since then, the quarry has filled up with rainwater and given way to a beautiful pond set against the foot of a high cliff and the secondary forest that the park now houses. The serene Butik Batok Park has diverse trails that range from easy to moderate level of difficulty, providing a beautiful view of the surrounding clear waters from the lookout points that are as tall as 10- storeys high and at intervals along the trails. The park also plays its part in the history and heritage of Singapore as it holds a World War 2 memorial up on the Bukit Batok Hill.
