Singapore Quarry

Singapore Quarry

Singapore Quarry is a scenic place in Singapore that is located off Dairy Farm Road near the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. I started my approximately one kilometre trek to Singapore Quarry from 30, Dairy Farm Road, near the gate of Ministry of Education's Dairy Farm Adventure Centre.

From Seen This Scene That

I was interested to take a look at the Singapore Quarry after reading yg's article on the Dairy Farm Nature Park.

On my recent visit, I was to discover that the Dairy Farm Nature Park or Singapore Quarry was not open to the public, and was not listed on National Park Board's website. On a road map, it appeared to be known as the Singapore Quarry according to my street directory.

I could not get nearer than a tall wire-fence surrounding the Singapore Quarry. Through gaps in the fencing, I could see the majestic red quarry topped with greenery rising out of a body of water into the blue expanse of sky. Bathed in warm colours of the afternoon sun, the breathtaking sight was well worth a long sweaty trek for my children.

Purpose-built facilities at the Singapore Quarry, with shiny varnish glistening in the late afternoon sun, were also spotted at the Singapore Quarry. I could hear the songs of unseen insects and hidden birds. I imagine that the water at the Singapore Quarry may also cradle aquatic creatures.

This spot of nature at the Singapore Quarry should prove popular when it opens to the public.

I visited the quarry b4 if I recall, walking from the summit of Bukit Timah Hill to the Dairy Farm, when I was a boy scout. We were supposed to hike down via one of the designated track/route, however, at the base, by turning left or right, we would reach the quarry or the main road.

Those days, it was used as a filming ground for martial arts dramas ! Would love to go back & explore again when it reopens.
