Dairy Farm Nature Park, Singapore Overview

The Dairy Farm Nature Park is a spread across a thriving 63-hectare land and is famous for many things such as its nature trails, hiking, and the quarry. Although this park does not have cows anymore as it is no longer a dairy farm, it still stands out from most parks in Singapore due to it being the place where the Wallace Education Centre resides. The Centre is Singapore's first field study hub for students and provides great opportunities for hands-on work and overwhelming experience. The Wallace Environmental Lab is also situated in this park which is the primary structure in which all research studies, activities, etc., for students, is conducted.

The Singapore Quarry is a relaxing wetland in the premises that is a prime spot for freshwater flora and fauna. The rare dragonflies are also found in abundance near the quarry. The Dairy Farm Nature Park is not only a place to gain an abundance of knowledge but also a place to explore and experience by yourself, the wonders of nature through the various exhibits and resources it provides.

More on Dairy Farm Nature Park

The most famous of the trails in this park, the Wallace Trail takes you through a forested area filled with fascinating and unique flora and fauna and areas that reflect the heritage of Singapore. This trail offers a short route which goes on for roughly 1km or the long route which is 2 km long. Once you enter the forested area you are immediately transformed to another world where squirrels are running around or a variety of unique and colourful birds are fluttering. The trail first leads you to a trip down history when remnants of what once was a kampong or village are seen. The walls and houses are a prime example of the past civilisation and Singapore’s heritage. A little further a Chempedak Tree, which is a natural Velcro and very often used in the past, is still standing. The Durian tree or the figs, apples and bracket fungus also add to the rustic atmosphere.
