The Bukit Batok Nature Park can be found along the Lorong Sesuai area of Singapore and is a great place for visitors to explore with a casual stroll.
The Bukit Batok Nature Park was a quarry as well as a place where Japanese soldiers memorialised the dead. Today, the remainder of that site is just two pillars and a flight of 120 concrete steps which will lead you to the old transmission tower.

There are a number of lookouts which you can climb to, as well as a deep pond located at the entrance. Pay tribute to the soldiers and victims of World War II at the memorial plaque situated within the park.
Those looking to take one of the nature walks will find a huge range of wildlife including birds, squirrels, monkeys, monitor lizards, dragonflies, butterflies and fish. The trails are considered easy to moderate and the walking time is between 1-2 hours. Some areas are not wheelchair-friendly due to stairs and steep slopes.
