The Kent Ridge Park is a sprawling 47-hectare park situated at Kent Ridge, between the Singapore Science Park and the National University of Singapore. It is one of the declared eleven sites of the Second World War in Singapore along with being one of the four primary bird-watching sites in the Lion City. Kent Ridge is popular among nature lovers, bird watchers and fitness enthusiasts owing to its well-paved landscape teeming lush vegetation and diverse wildlife.
The eastern side of Kent Ridge Park leads to a valley, the path to which is flanked by a natural pond brimming with fish as well as turtles. Towards this valley is the 280 meters long, elevated boardwalk popularly referred to as the Canopy Walk. It is one of the prime attractions at Kent Ridge Park famous for spotting beautiful doves, sunbirds, mischievous squirrels, and white-crested thrush. The Canopy Walk connects the Kent Ridge Park to the HortPark, a 9-hectare park which also doubles as a gardening hub. At the end of the Canopy Walk lies "Reflections at Bukit Chandu", the museum recounting fierce battle against the Japanese in World War II. Do follow the nature trail along Carpark A and take in the mesmerising view of the natural secondary forest with an abundance of Tembusu, Tiup-tiup, Rubber Trees, Simpoh Air, and Wild Cinnamons. There is a series of exercise stations near Carpark B.
