Dairy Farm Nature Park

Dairy Farm Nature Park is located along Dairy Farm Road and in close proximity to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. 

The Wallace Education Centre, which has a permanent exhibition on Wallace is situated in the park. The park is mainly made up of spontaneous vegetation, with some parts in front of the centre planted with exotic plant species.
