What makes a city stand out from the rest is its balance between the natural and the manmade, and in this respect, Singapore has never fallen behind. In spite of a new skyscraper rising against the backdrop of the cobalt sky almost every month, Singapore has never fallen short of making genuine efforts to preserve its natural parks and the lush green forests. These very efforts have given rise to beautiful and serene spaces, such as the Southern Ridges, where people take shelter in order to get away from the city and feel closer to nature. This ten-kilometre long trail spans the hills of four parks and picturesque pathways and provides an excellent walk through nature without ever having to leave the city.
Stretching from Mount Faber along Telok Blangah Hill Park, HortPark and Kent Ridge Park, the Southern Ridges are steeped in history and offer breathtaking panoramic views of the contemporary city, the Southern Islands, and the harbour. Home to a large variety of flora and fauna, the tranquil ridges are frequented by photography enthusiasts, history buffs, nature lovers and fitness freaks. The Canopy Walk, Forest Walk, Henderson Waves, Alexandra Arch and the Labrador Nature Reserve are some of the highlights of the Southern Ridges, among others, which teem with wild flowers and winged creatures. Capture the magnificence and beauty of nature in all its glory as you walk along this long stretch of open spaces.
