Since it was opened in 1993, this amazing park has attracted a lot of nature lovers and fun-seekers in Singapore and other parts of the world.

This 202-hectare paradise was renamed and officially declared a Nature Reserve to reflect its status in 2002. Still, in that year, this breathtaking park came into the spotlight and was internationally recognized, as it was an important site for migratory birds. Because of this development, Wetlands International awarded it a certificate and cleared a path for it to formally join the East Asian Australasian Shorebird Site Network, which includes Japan’s Yatsu Tidal Flats, Australia’s Kakadu, and China’s Mai Po- Inner Deep Bay.

Initially, the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve measured 130 hectares. Its borders, which were gradually extended, now measures 202 hectares of greens, dense mangroves, bio diverse forest, and mudflats, thus providing an even larger shelter for the numerous varieties of plant and animal species who call it home.

Some of the highlights of this reserve are the new visitor’s center along the Kranji Way and some new trails that takes visitors towards the wonders of the forest.
