Identified by the British as a strategic defence site to protect the entrance to the harbours of Singapore in 1843, the park offers a picturesque view of the sea. Nature lovers will be delighted to find a rich variety of flora and fauna such as the White-crested Laughing Thrush, the Yellow-vented Bulbul, scurrying squirrels and the regal White-bellied Sea Eagle. You can also have a glimpse into the past as you explore the underground complexes used during WWII for storage of ammunition and supplies.

An aerial staircase on the edge of the secondary forest offers a prime view of cliff side vegetation together with a panoramic view of the sea.
