While many nature-loving Singaporeans have made a trip to MacRitchie recently, some might have left in slight disappointment as they could not visit the TreeTop Walk as it has been closed since last August for maintenance.
At the TreeTop Walk, one will get to catch a bird's-eye view of the canopy of the mature secondary forest from a free-standing suspension bridge.
But the wait could be over soon.
According to a notice that the National Parks Board (NParks) put on their website, the maintenance works at the TreeTop Walk, Peirce Track, and Petaling Boardwalk are expected to complete at the end of this month.
Avoid crowded green spaces and abide by Covid-19 rules
If you are planning to visit any green spaces, do remember to keep to groups of no more than five people, keep a safe distance from other groups and wear your mask unless you are engaged in strenuous exercise.
On May 8, NParks also announced the closure of some facilities at popular parks such as the hot spring stations at Sembawang Hot Spring Park. These facilities will be closed till May 30.
NParks added that parks that get too crowded may be closed temporarily too.
The agency has also created a useful real-time map to show the level of crowdedness at various green spaces. Do check the crowd level before leaving your house!
