Bukit Batok Nature Park


Bukit Batok Nature Park remains as one of my favourite parks with lots of spontaneous vegetation. There are ample opportunities to spot forest birds and butterflies which are rarely seen in urban parks.

It's nice to see native trees, shrubs and epiphytes planted in parks and the native fauna attracted to it. Will be back to visit again! :)
