There's a new destination for nature-loving Westies, and it's a whole new park at Bukit Gombak. Boasting an elevation of 45 metres above sea level at its highest point, the park also comes with a host of amenities to delight young and old alike.
Designed to look as naturalistic as possible, the 4.8 hectare hill park will include Bukit Gombak's first dog run, community garden allotments, an upcoming nursery as part of the OneMillion trees movement, as well as a Butterfly Park and scenic views at its peak. To enjoy the best of Bukit Gombak Park, embark on a 400 metres looped hill trek to appreciate a diversity of forest tree species as you make your way to the top.
Take the kids to the park's new play area, where they can slip and slide on a 5.3-metre-long slide that's been integrated into the site's natural slope, and other nature-inspired play equipment. Otherwise, there are outdoor fitness areas, abundant open spaces, and Whisk and Paddle café for you to while the day away.
Eager hikers will be glad to know that Bukit Gombak Park is a node in the Bukit Batok Nature Corridor, giving new access to more than 125 hectares of parks and 10km of nature and park connectors. So, lace up those hiking books and clear your calendars to explore the new Bukit Gombak Park and beyond. Find out more at nparks.gov.sg.
