Hort Park & Southern Ridges

The Alexandra Arch at the entrance to the HortPark.
Open  lobby at the Visitors Centre

They call this 'The Web', I didn't ask why.

Butterfly enclosure

Experimental Vertical Hedges

Mosaics at the Visitors Centre

You can't swim on the grass here !   (somebody goofed?)

The Alexandra Arch bridge connects HortPark to the Canopy Walk leading to Mt Faber.

The other end of the bridge.

The Canopy Walk is 2.5km long to Telok Blangah Hilltop

Alternatively, you can do the Earth Trail Route below the Canopy Walk.
