Kent Ridge Park to Southern Ridges

Well, this walk was possibly the last walk prior to my surgery. I am definitely looking forward to a full recovery and a long walk.

We did this walk on 14 June 2015 as part of our Southern Ridges walk. We’ve done the Southern Ridges walk the last time without starting from Kent Ridges. 

Oh yes, hydrate well and bring a quick dry towel for the humidity.

Kent Ridge Park is close to Pasir Panjang MRT (circle line) and you could walk in through Pepys Road, which will take you up a hill. Very tranquil and great to get your heartrate up.

The park is huge but we didn’t finish a complete perimeter walk around Kent Ridge. We walked towards Hort Park (follow the signs) through a canopy walk (a raised bridge over the trees and you get a great view). You’ll see the nursery of Hort Park from the canopy park. Hort Park is undergoing a bit of a renovation for a playground it seems.

You could cut across Hort Park to the Southern Ridges walk. There are two options:
– Canopy walk
– Earth Walk

We have gone on the canopy walk twice now and will do the Earth Walk next time. The Canopy Walk is a raised bridge and the Earth Walk is along a track through a ‘jungle’ (cleared path and trees so it’s a sheltered walk for a sunny day).

The canopy walk on Southern Ridges will take you to Telok Blangah Hill to Henderson Waves. This is the best part of the walk. I’ve written an earlier Trip Advisor review on Southern Ridges with Henderson Waves. You may also refer to another post within my site on Southern Ridges.

In our opinion, the next part after Henderson Waves is all a little boring. It takes you to Mt Faber which is where you get a cable car to Sentosa. After Mt Faber, you’ll downwards to Vivocity and HarbourFront.

Estimate about 2.5 hours for the entire walk. We walked rather briskly and it took us 2hrs or under.

Walk on!
