Walk & Talk At The Southern Ridges

16th May 2015

The Southern Ridges is one of the best spots in Singapore to catch panoramic views of the city, the harbour and the Southern Islands. Embark on a stroll on the Hilltop, Canopy and Forest Walks, where the high bridges provide magnificent vantage points for the surrounding area as you soak in the natural beauty of the forest’s flora and fauna. The natural beauty and green open spaces make it ideal for a relaxing walk.

It’s 8am on a Saturday morning, as a group of 18 staffs and their families began their challenging 7km hike from Labrador Park to the Alexandra Arch. It’s a fun spot for us to take some photos, and there’s a stroller-friendly walkway that leads up to the bridge from Hort Park as well. Wecrossed through the rainforest by forest walk which comprises of elevated, metal walkways that take us above the foliage of the ridge.

Signs on the pavement indicated the way to the next stop - Henderson Bridge. We felt glad while standing 36 metres above Henderson Road on a 274-metre long and the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore. It is a popular place to hang out and recuperate among hikers. It’s also a beautiful place to run, sit, relax, and explore by adults and kids alike. The other side was an entirely different world; mainly lush greenery with the aesthetically-unique condominium (Reflections at Keppel Bay) taking up the landscape centrestage.

After the Henderson Waves, the next part of the Southern Ridges is Mount Faber Hill which is closer to the end of the trail and higher. This is by far, the best view of buildings at a distance among all the views along the Southern Ridges. The hike ended at the Marang Trail, just behind the Harbour Front MRT Station. Finally we got to see city again!

Everyone had a good time with members of the CSR committee and hopes more of such events that can instill greater love and appreciation for our natural environment will be organized in the future.
