Phase 2 of MacRitchie Reservoir's renovations completed

Phase 2 of MacRitchie Reservoir's renovations completed

SINGAPORE: The second phase of MacRitchie Reservoir's S$5 million facelift has been completed.


MacRitchie's iconic bandstand and zigzag bridge, which was gazetted as a heritage building in 2009, has also been refurbished.

Among its new attractions is a submerged boardwalk that allows visitors to get a little closer to nature.

The boardwalk is located near the edge of the reservoir.

The plants lining the boardwalk serve more than just beautifying the area. It also has an environmental friendly function.

PUB's assistant director Sam Ow, said: "This feature also helps to cleanse the stormwater, using natural systems like the plants and soil to treat the stormwater before it goes back to the main water body."

Another environmentally-friendly feature is the new hilltop restaurant.

Decked out with a partial glass roof, the restaurant will allow visitors to enjoy not only sunlight in the day, but also dining under the night sky.

MacRitchie's iconic bandstand and zigzag bridge, which was gazetted as a heritage building in 2009, has also been refurbished.

The reservoir has been undergoing renovations since April last year.

The new features will be open to the public on October 11.
