MacRitchie TreeTop Walk Has Reopened To The Public, Some Hikers Have Already Been There

MacRitchie TreeTop Walk Reopens After Closure Of Over 1 Year

Hiking in Singapore has gained popularity since travel came to a standstill due to the pandemic.

Thus, the MacRitchie Reservoir TreeTop Walk closure last year would’ve disappointed many.

After more than a year, though, it has finally reopened the public.


Some hikers have already been there and shared photos of the newly opened attraction.

TreeTop Walk reopened on 15 Dec

On Thursday (16 Dec), a hiker shared with the hikerplanet Facebook group that he’d visited the MacRitchie Reservoir TreeTop Walk that day.

According to officers from the National Parks Board (NParks) that he spoke to, the attraction actually opened the day before, on 15 Dec.


Strangely, there was no announcement on its reopening, despite the hiker seeing the media taking photos.

TreeTop Walk’s reopening was delayed

Some Singaporeans may know that the TreeTop Walk closed in Aug 2020 for maintenance works.

These works were supposed to be completed by May this year.


However, that obviously didn’t happen, and NParks said the reopening would be delayed till the 3rd quarter of 2021.

However, it seems that the prediction didn’t come true either as we had to wait till Dec.

Hikers share photos of visit

Now that the TreeTop Walk is open once more, some hikers who’ve been there already have eagerly shared photos.

One was lucky enough to catch a monkey on the railing.


He also posted the view from above the treetops—a rare building-free sight of the tranquil Upper Pierce Reservoir that’s scarcely believable in densely populated Singapore.


According to NParks, the highest point of the walk is 25m from the ground – so don’t cross the bridge if you fear heights.


Otherwise, just enjoy the panoramic view provided by the iconic suspension bridge that connects the 2 highest points of MacRitchie Reservoir.


Last entry at 4.45pm

If you’re keen to visit, do note that the closest way to get there will be via Windsor Nature Park.

The entrance is at Venus Drive, and from there is a 2.5km walk to the bridge.


Opening Hours: 9am-5pm (Tues-Fri), 8.30am-5pm (Sat-Sun & PH), Closed on Mondays
Nearest MRT: Bright Hill

Also, do arrive early as the last entry is a strict 4.45pm.

NParks encourages visitors to visit on weekdays or between 10.30am and 3.30pm for safe distancing.

Visit while it’s cool

Now that the MacRitchie Reservoir TreeTop Walk has finally reopened, you may want to take advantage of the current cool weather to visit.

After all, it’s been more than a year, and we’re eager to find out whether anything has changed.

However, behave responsibly while you’re there—observe safe distancing and clean up after yourself.
