Singapore’s newest and seventh nature park opens today.
Named the Thomson Nature Park, the 50-hectare buffer park features 5 trails that span over 3.8km.
It is also home to a rich array of biodiversity including Sunda Pangolin, Malayan Porcupine and the critically endangered Raffles’ Banded Langur, an Old World monkey.
Besides the extensive forest area and rich wildlife along the trails, the park is also the site of a former Hainan Village.
Visitors can follow 3 specially curated walking trails and spot the remnants of kampung life that can still be found there.
