Southern Ridges Mar 25, 2015
Singapore is heavily built up, but has retained a surprising number of woodland reserves. These are linked together by bridges to form the Southern Ridges walk. The bridges include the really quite impressive Henderson Waves, a wooden bridge crossing a gully above a main road that is the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore.

I only walked about a third of the way, as I was 5 months pregnant and feeling the heat. I’d recommend anyone coming for a walk in the parks take plenty of water, as there aren’t that many drinking fountains or shops along the way. We walked through canopy level walkways and over two of the bridges, Henderson Waves and the Alexandra bridge, but didn’t detour for many of the gardens along the way.

The walk passes many parks and gardens, although parts of it also skirt roads. It’s a little strange to be walking through a woodland and come to a gap in the trees and realise you are still totally surrounded by city and tower blocks. But the section I walked was very nice, shady and quiet.

This is a nice way to take some time out of the hustle and bustle of Singapore and get some fresh air. In wildlife terms, it’s not overwhelming, but it’s very pleasant and the architecture on the bridges is fun.

Southern Ridges of Singapore Feb 20, 2013
Southern Ridges is a group of parks connected with bridges and passages to make one long path. I am suggesting to enter the connection at the Harbor Front because it is super easy access and if you are going for it, do it from the beginning… Harbor Front is an Metro station for Orange and Purple line, and for the path you should exit on the D exit. There is also easy way to get to the Mount Faber park with the bus or with your own car. Also you can get there with the cable cars that span the bay between Sentosa Island and Mount Faber. Whole path is around 10km long and it connects Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Park, Hort Park and Kent Ridge. I exited in Kent Ridge and went back with metro a bit tired and very sweaty.
