Chestnut Nature Park is located on the eastern end of Chestnut Avenue, right beside the Central Catchment Nature Reserve.

3. You can hike and mountain bike here

Chestnut Nature Park is the first nature park in Singapore to have separate mountain biking and hiking trails. In the southern portion, the former is 1.6km long, and the latter is 2.1km long.

With the completion of the northern portion, the entire park now has 6km and 5km of mountain biking and hiking trails respectively. They are split into different difficulty levels, with one “Extremely Difficult” trail named “Over the Moon”. Be careful, bikers!

Check out the full run-down of the trails here.
