Kent Ridge Park in Singapore


I saw the name Kent Ridge Park scroll by my feed earlier in the week, and it took me right back to my childhood! I used to hike through it all the time, especially during school holidays. Waking up at sunrise to beat the humidity and heat, then going for a wander for a few hours was a great way to clear my head.

I forgot it also had historical significance:

A historical park where one of the last battles for Singapore was fought during World War II, Kent Ridge Park is a great place for families and history buffs to learn about the heritage of our nation.

I need to get out and do more walks like this. Sydney has tons of them too.
