Nature reserves are protected areas of rich biodiversity that are representative sites of key indigenous ecosystems. To safeguard the native flora and fauna in these areas, there are special restrictions on the activities that can be carried out.
As part of a holistic conservation approach, some nature parks have been established on the margins of the Nature Reserves to act as green buffers.
The National Parks Board (NParks) has unveiled plans for a new 67-hectare Rifle Range Nature Park, which will serve as the southern buffer park for Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and is expected to be completed in 2020
The 67-hectare Rifle Range Nature Park is located at the southern end of Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. As a buffer park, Rifle Range Nature Park will help to reduce visitorship pressure on Bukit Timah Nature Reserve by providing interesting alternative venues for the public to enjoy nature-related activities.
Being next to the nature reserve, Rifle Range Nature Park provides complementary forest habitat for biodiversity from Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. Surveys indicate that native flora species growing in the nature reserve can be seen at the fringe of the nature park. Visitors may be able to chance upon native fauna species such as the Sunda Pangolin (Manis javanica) and Horsfield’s Flying Squirrel (Lomys horsfieldii). Native crabs, frogs, fishes and snakes can also be seen in the slow-flowing sandy streams.
Visitors will be able to experience the canopies of a regenerating secondary forest through a Sky Garden. It is an elevated walkway that provides a seamless experience from Beauty World to the Sin Seng Quarry.
The former Sin Seng Quarry will be sensitively enhanced to support the rich biodiversity in the area. The quarry was once one of the deepest quarries in Singapore (55 metres at its deepest point), but has since been backfilled. It will be transformed into a freshwater habitat with alook-out point for visitors to appreciate marsh birds.
Hiking trails with varying levels of difficulty will also be added to give visitors a chance to learn more about the history of quarrying in Singapore and the heritage highlights within the site.
Aerial rope bridges across Rifle Range Road will be provided to allow animals to move safely between Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and Rifle Range Nature Park. The first such bridges in Singapore, they aim to restore the ecological connection between the two forest habitats.

The much-anticipated 1880 has announced its official opening for end-September 2017. The born-in-Singapore members’ club hopes to inspire conversations that impact society in a positive way. It does this by creating a diverse community of members who represent the collective brains of creativity, drive and passion.
Its home will occupy the third floor of the city’s latest waterfront lifestyle destination, Quayside@Robertson Quay, situated in the eponymous enclave along the Singapore River.
1880 is named for the era that Robertson Quay was built. It is the antidote to the traditional members’ club, shunning homogeneity, while championing diversity, ingenuity and global citizenry. The four pillars of the club are membership, design, events and hospitality.
Further setting it apart is its unique formula of combining a social club and co-working space. The latter is named Bardo, the Tibetan word for “an intermediate state”, implying a clean slate and clarity of mind free of external influence. The intent is to blur the line between work and life – perhaps even redefine the somewhat antiquated notion of work- life balance – by seamlessly integrating both concepts within 1880.
In particular, 1880 is designed to be the golf course for women, embracing their lifestyles. It is intended that the club eventually be replicated in major cities across Asia. In doing so, it will offer women who travel extensively for work and play an inspiring space to drop in to. While there, they might have the opportunity to meet like-minded people through an event, or even catch a film about social justice.
1880's design is conceptualised by Timothy Oulton Studio and includes an outdoor dining deck, members’ lounge, dining room, spa, grooming facilities, café, bar, cinema and library.
On one hand, members can go to the club and find a space to decompress and have fun. On the other hand, they can use it to expand their social and business network.
