Chestnut Nature Park

Chestnut Nature Park is a serene and beautiful space endowed with vast varieties of flora and fauna species. Because it is close to the Central Nature Reserve, you can expect to see different rare plant species.

Located on the eastern end of Chestnut Avenue, this remarkable park has two main areas- Chestnut Nature Park (North) and Chestnut Nature Park (South). In February 2017, the Northern portion of the park, which is about 64 hectares, was opened to the general public. The southern portion, which was opened last year measures, 81 hectares and is presently the largest nature park in Singapore.

Thanks to the ongoing habitat enhancement program to improve the conservation efforts of Nparks, this fascinating park has been planted with various flora species like Jelutong (Dyera costulata), Singapore’s walking-stick palm (Rhopaloblaste singaporensis), and Braided chestnut (Castanopsis inermis). These native tree species were introduced to the park to improve its biodiversity and ecological connectivity so that animals can move around safely.

Visitors of different age groups can have a fun time at this iconic park as everything from bird watching and hiking to mountain biking can be done here. This amazing park is the first park in Singapore with a dedicated trail for hiking and biking.

To improve the experience of visitors, this park was fitted with state of the art amenities like pavilions, toilets, shelters, map-boards, mountain biking, and hiking trails. Visitors can buy delicious snacks and rent bikes at the kiosk in the park
