We have started a monthly brisk walking session, which will be held on the 1st Sunday of the month. Besides your daily/ weekly healthy lifestyle routine, these sessions are meant for us to come together as we venture to places which we would normally not go on our own.

From a former sand quarry to a beautiful reservoir park, Bedok Reservoir Park enjoys popularity with joggers and water sports enthusiasts. Schools and organisations hold their regular marathons here, challenging themselves round the 4.3km track. Dragon boats and canoes dot the waters and fishing hobbyists try their luck on our fishing deck.
 
In spite of all these exhilarating activities, the reservoir park also invites you to explore its peaceful areas. You can find perfect spots to relax and enjoy the scenery around you. The floating deck situated near the activity mall event site is one of such spots. With the terraced viewing gallery as its complement, one can appreciate the tranquility our reservoir has to offer.

    Step into the nature reserves and journey back in time to the days before Sir Stamford Raffles arrived, when much of the island was covered with lowland, tropical forest. Though much of Singapore's original vegetation had been cleared for logging and cultivation, the forest at Bukit Timah Nature Reserve has remained relatively undisturbed.

 The 150-year old Singapore Botanic Gardens is a star visitor attraction for the sophisticated traveller as well as the local resident. This Gardens possesses an array of botanical and horticultural attractions with a rich history and a wonderful plant collection of worldwide significance. Complementing these unique resources are sensitive developments providing visitors educational and recreational facilities.

During your leisure, bring patience, sharp eyes and ears with you, as Bedok Reservoir Park is also a great sanctuary for bird watching. You will be handsomely rewarded with sights of swallows playing on waters and flashes of cobalt blue Kingfishers diving for its lunch. If you are fortunate enough, you might catch that Little Heron wading along the banks of the reservoir.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
     Other than being storehouses of water, today, Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and Central Catchment Nature Reserve are homes to more than 840 flowering plants and over 500 species of animals (including butterflies).
