This peaceful park is perfect for outdoorsy folks who want to clock in some laps away from more crowded nature reserves in Singapore. But even if “fitspo” isn’t in your dictionary, you don’t have to worry about burning yourself out as the walk up the 30M-high hill shouldn’t take longer than 15 minutes.
