Zhenghua Nature Park: At the Edge of Nature

Steep Slopes

In November 2015, a 3.8 hectare extension was officially added to the Zhenghua Nature Park. Located at Segar Road, close to residential flats, this extension includes a sand-based children’s playground, an open green and amenities for visitors.

While the Zhenghua Park Extension is easily accessible (fairly expected we think), the rest of Zhenghua Park invites more venturing and exploration.

ZhengHua Park ExtensionRunning alongside the Bukit Timah Expressway for about 2.5 km, Zhenghua Nature Park is long and linear. Extending all the way from Bukit Panjang estate in the North to Dairy Farm Road in the South, it sits at the edge of the Central Catchment Area. One of its purposes is as a green buffer for the forest to the urbanity of Bukit Panjang.

Park goers can choose from either the urban tarmac closer to Bukit Panjang town or explore gravelly trails leading off toward the Bukit Timah Reserve after Cashew Road. In either case, be prepared for undulating pathways with steep slopes.
