The serene Bukit Batok Nature Park was developed on an abandoned quarry in 1988. There are lookout points that afford stunning views of the quarry, along with footpaths to cycle and jog on and a moderately easy hiking trail through the foliage. For a bit of history, head to the WWII memorial, which commemorates the location of one of the fiercest battles that took place in Singapore.
It was once the centre of quarrying activities of Singapore, but these days Bukit Batok and the neighbouring Bukit Gombak is a tranquil residential town full of hidden gems. The former quarries are now attractions in the neighbourhood and make for some of the most picturesque spots in Singapore.
