The original Sungei Buloh Wetland reserve (双溪布洛) ground remains unchanged, the new extension is closer to Kranji reservoir and bus service 925.
Walkways are designed to hug the mangroves coastline. Visitors can now admire up-close how mangroves provide protection for inner coastal waterways and the various inhabitants within the wetland boundary.
Love the pods (total 3) along Coastal trail. They provide a hideout for you to view the birds or elevated views of mangrove coastline. The pods will be fun for kids to climb up and down (be warned, the structure can waver a bit haha)
You can bet kids will enjoy their nature trail! It was drizzling during our field trip, but with Cheekiemonkies for company, nothing will stop us from having fun.
We love how the man-man structures (walkway, bridge and pods) meshed into natural surroundings. Besides minimal disruption to the foliage, a mid-canopy walkway also allows you to brush along a forest’s undergrowth!
“Mud experience” should be Fun and therapeutic like Mummy’s Mud spa. Imagine dabbling your toes in the soft mudflat. The resident giant mudskipper will be amused that we humans love mud habitat too (this experience is only available during low tide)
Although information signboards are packed with knowledge, nothing beats a guide, Free walks are available on Saturday. With names like What’s in my MUD?(mangroves/sky/water etc total of six trails), kids can definitely look forward to embrace Sungei Buloh Wetland reserve. Registration details at this link.

We Love Sungei Buloh. This is one of the few areas where we can get real close (now even closer) to mangrove and coastal inhabitants! A lot of details and designs are incorporated to make the trails family friendly. We are giving this new playground two thumbs up! More photos uploaded on our Fanpage album.
