The last time we visited MacRitchie Reservoir was just before it underwent improvement. Now that the phase one of its makeover has completed, we can look forward to a family outing to this park!
MacRitchie Reservoir is like a hidden treasure in the city for us. It is so close to our house, yet it's like a journey back in time to the old days when much of the island was covered with lowland, tropical forest.
The park has also become a popular spot for exercise enthusiasts, especially joggers. It is also popular amongst families as a park for morning and evening walks or just a stroll along the water's edge. And the kids can look out for the monkeys, turtles, fish and more!
The park has a food kiosk, an exercise station and several shelters and benches that face the scenic reservoir.
Visitors to MacRitchie Reservoir can expect exciting enhancements, such as a new multi-storey carpark for some 300 lots, an amenities centre and an improved floating pontoon for kayakers.
To enable the public to enjoy the view of the reservoir, a previously-closed dam is now open and acrylic panels have been installed on the grilles by the side of the dam.
