Southern Ridges Walk Singapore

Hello. I am now back in Singapore. My Dad is still very ill in hospital. We keep praying and hoping.

This posting shows you photos of a walk that we did on Daniela's birthday in January. Last year works were completed on linking three parks to gether; Kent Ridge, Telok Blangah Hill and Mount Faber. You can walk for about 9km across the parks. There are tree top walks and bridges of architectural interest. You can see the map above. We started in Kent Ridge Park on the left side of the map.

I hope you enjoy the walk.

Thanks for coming and take care.


The start of the walk in Kent Ridge Park.
This is a view off the southwest coast of Singapore

A section of the canopy walk that connects
Kent Ridge to Telok Blangah Hill Park

The Flower pot man. Is it Bill
or is it Ben? And where is
Little Weed?
Sorry, regressing
to my childhood!

This doesn't look like Little Weed.
Maybe Mrs Scarecrow?

This is Daniela getting up close to a dinosaur.
The colour of the dinosaur seems a bit strange...

This part of Telok Blangah Hill park.
It is a huge Garden centre and is called
Hort Park

Daniela, the birthday girl!

An interesting stairwell

This is Alexandra Arch It links you from
Hort Park to the Forest walk, which is the
beginning of Mount Faber Park

On the bridge

From the other end

It would be nice to live here. Though I hear
that since the walk has been completed, walkers
knock on the doors of nearby houses asking
for a drink etc.......

The Forest Walk

These red flowers are attractive. I don't know
what they are called. Any ideas anyone?

A bird's eye view

Beautiful display of leaves

Henderson Waves, at a height of 36 m, is
Singapore's highest pedestrian bridge.

A wave-shaped, steel-and-timber structure,
it spans 274 metres across Henderson Road.

The wave

View of Singapore. The buildings are mostly
Government built flats. 70% of Singaporeans live
in housing developed by the Government.

No use waiting for a bus here....

Now what was this little fellah called?

The wave from the other side

It could almost be a skytrain. like the one
in Bangkok

The bridge from the road. And we are tired,
hoping the bus will come soon to take us home.

See you next time, thanks for coming.
