Bukit Batok Nature Park


Bukit Batok Nature Park is situated along Bukit Batok East Ave 6 and Bukit Batok East Ave 2. The park has mostly spontaneous vegetation and secondary forest, with close proximity to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve.

NParks sign stating that they are planting up the park with native tree species which I think it is a good initiative.

BBNP seems to be teeming with life, bird calls can be heard from all corners. I hope I can catch sight of the Straw-headed bulbul the next time.
