(A) Bukit Batok Town Park

Known as Little Guilin or Xiao Guilin among the locals, this park looks similar to that of Guilin in China - a granite rock sitting within a lake.

The park has a narrow strip of land, beautifully landscaped and provided with footpaths. This park is popular with shutter bugs and wedding couples.

Location : Bukit Batok East Ave 5.

Getting there :
5 minutes walk from Bukit Gombak MRT Station.
Bus Services Nos. 365 and 945 from Bukit Batok Bus Interchange.

(B) Bukit Batok Nature Park

This park was developed on an abandoned quarry site in 1988. The terrain is undulating and footpaths are meandering. Several look-out points, some reaching more than 10 storeys high, provide breathtaking views.

The serene ambience of the park provides an ideal backdrop for a peaceful nature walk. Near the entrance of the park, at the foot of a high cliff wall, is a picturesque 1.2 ha pond. The pond runs deep and still - a relic from the mining days of the region.

Joggers will welcome the undulating terrain and the serene ambience of the park.

During the Second World War, the Japanese selected a site at which the MediaCorp's tower stands as a memorial for the soldiers who died. Today, all that remains of the memorial are two pillars and 120 concrete steps leading up to the transmission tower. The National Heritage Board had erected an information board, highlighting the significance of the site.

Location : Bukit Batok East Ave 2

Getting there : Bus Services Nos. 61, 66, 157, 178, 852, 985. Alight along Bukit Batok Ave 6.
