The 18-metre rocket tower – about six stories high – was designed and built by the then-Public Works Department, and reflects the space exploration fervour of that era.

Climbing the Rocket Tower at Upper Seletar Reservoir ParkKeep climbing up the spiral staircase, which goes round and round inside the building, all the way to the very top.

View from the top of the Rocket TowerFinally, the staircase will open up into an open circular balcony and you will be rewarded with views of the 1,093ha Upper Seletar Reservoir and tree-top canopies far below.

Space Explorations

Pack along a fruit smoothie pouch and have a snack during your space expedition. After all, back in 1969, similar retort food pouches were used by the Apollo astronauts on their trip to the moon.

After you get back down to earth, you can have a picnic lunch at one of the pavilions near the rocket tower at Upper Seletar Reservoir Park.

Surface explorationsIf the little one gets bored of the rocket tower, there is a little side activity – a cool blue-floored fitness area. We suppose that’s where “astronauts” exercise to keep fit for their expeditions.

Well, we brought along a kick scooter, just for fun.
