Located to the east of the Central Catchment Nature Reserve (CCNR), between Old Upper Thomson Road and Upper Thomson Road, Thomson Nature Park acts as a green buffer to help reduce visitorship pressures and man-made disturbances currently experienced by the nature reserve. This 50-hectare buffer park is unique for its rich cultural heritage as the site of a former Hainan Village. It is also home to a rich array of biodiversity and is notably a key conservation site for the critically endangered Raffles’ Banded Langur (Presbytis femoralis femoralis). 

 

Through this guided walk, you will gain a greater appreciation of Singapore’s rich natural heritage and the need to protect it for future generations. Come join us and discover the importance of Thomson Nature Park as a buffer to the Central Catchment Nature Reserve.
