Brought the kids here this morning for the first time. It's a fairly small but quite attractive park area. Not sure why but there don't seem to be any fish in the pond. Maybe the water is too polluted.

This place offers not much to see. Just the giant stone and the small lake but if you enjoy sitting down looking at nice view, go here! It's so calm here. I enjoyed my relaxing time so much. Thinking about life and stuff. Hahaha... To get here: After you tap out at MRT Bukit Gombak, turn right to the road,... More

There is a huge cliff right next to a small lake. Nothing much to do except sit around on the benches and relax. Can easily spot people trying to get a good shot of the cliff in the evenings. There used to be a trail earlier but NParks has closed it for a while now. Easily accessible from Bukit Gombak... More

Visited morning time and this place is very peaceful and calm. Can't believe we can hear animals voices in the middle of the city.

You can reach this public park by taking a train to the Bukit Batok MRT station. Alight here and take bus No 945 to reach Little Guilin. Alternatively you can alight at Gombak MRT station and walk 100 m to the park. This park is quiet in the day but in the evening courting couples would make a beeline for... More

Little Guilin is located just beside the Gombak MRT station. The scenic spot is behind the Gombak sports stadium. The atmosphere is tranquil overlooking the Little Guilin lake with the small little Guilin hill as the backdrop. The place is windy with a lot of tree shades and little rocks studded along the pathway. This is not the first time... More

A small park good for family gathering and relaxing. The view of the lake and rocky hill is quite nice. Please note that the jungle trek although indicated on information board but actually it had been closed permanently.

The Bukit Timah Trail is closed for reparation until May 2016. That s a long while to wait... Little Guilin and Bkt Batok are not worthy substitutes for serious hill (no mountains in Spore) hikers like me. The Little Guilin has a smallish path around the 'lake' with a couple of quarried hillocks in the background. It is peaceful place... More

I visit this place five years ago, but worth keeping a review If you need to get a peaceful walk in Singapore. It is only 5 minutes walk from the Bukit Gombak MRT station. Worth visiting here if you are a nature lover.

This is a beautiful place especially if you come at the correct time of the day. It is small though and the fact that this is out of town makes it hard to recommend if you have a tight itinerary. It is best to combine this in the early morning with other nearby attractions like the zoo (it's not that... More
