Escape the Hustle and Bustle of City Life
The Seletar Reservoir was built in 1920 and officially opened by Her Royal Highness, Princess Alexandra, The Honourable Lady Ogilvy on 10 August 1969. In 1992, it was renamed as the Upper Seletar Reservoir and was marked a historic site in 1999. Today, the Upper Seletar Reservoir is one of the four reservoirs that bound the nature reserves, others being the MacRitchie Reservoir, the Lower Peirce Reservoir, and the Upper Peirce Reservoir.
Soak in the Magical Glow of the Breath-Taking Sunset over the Reservoir
With 15 hectares of natural vegetation, the park is teeming with flora and fauna, making it a favourite spot for nature lovers. It is also a popular place among sunset lovers.
At evening, put on your running gear and go for a 3-4 km heart-pumping, invigorating jog around the park. Alternatively, take a leisurely stroll and admire the serenity of the reservoir and the majesty of the park’s iconic rocket-shaped tower. For the more adventurous, climb up to the top of the tower and be rewarded with stunning panoramic views of the waters and adjacent greenery. Alternatively for a longer distance, you may run from Upper Peirce Reservoir Park to Upper Seletar Reservoir Park.
Visitors can also trek along the park’s many trails or go on a nature walk and discover the park’s inhabitants. Nature lovers will be thrilled at the sight of the resident long-tailed macaques, but please remember not to expose food or drinks in their presence as they might bite.
