Lower Peirce Reservoir Park, Singapore

4.5
#7 of 15 in Nature in Singapore
The Lower Peirce Reservoir is one of the oldest reservoirs in Singapore. It is located near MacRitchie Reservoir and Upper Peirce Reservoir. Previously known as Kallang River Reservoir and Peirce Reservoir, it was renamed Lower Peirce Reservoir after the creation of Upper Peirce Reservoir. It has a surface area of 6 hectares and the surrounding forest contains many trees that are over 100 years old. There is a Lower Peirce Trail, which is a 900-metre boardwalk that takes visitors through a mature secondary forest. The reservoir is the source of the Kallang River, the longest river in Singapore.
Originally known as the Kallang River Reservoir, Singapore's second reservoir was impounded across the lower reaches of the Kallang River in 1910. In 1922, it was renamed Peirce Reservoir in commendation of the services of Robert Peirce (engineer), who was the municipal engineer of Singapore from 1901 to 1916.
In 1975, a major water supply project to develop new water resources was undertaken to support Singapore's rapid housing and industrialisation programmes. A dam was constructed at the upper reaches of the Peirce Reservoir, forming the Upper and Lower Peirce Reservoirs.

  • Beautiful place to spend quite alone time, or with a near one. Lots of dogs to play around with, and you can see wild boars and monkeys in the greens around the periphery. Saw a stingray during one of my trips, and sunsets are beautiful. Just a great place to be at, at the end of the day or end of a busy week. Helps you unwind.
  • Nice but short walking trail they have here. Reservoir is beautiful. Nice to see wildlife like monkeys and wild boars in central Singapore.
  • A really pretty place (peaceful as it is not too crowded even on weekends!) Loads of places to take scenic pictures.
  • Love this place. A good place to relax and to enjoy the breeze. Not many people visiting, which actually is a good thing. You can fish there too.
  • Love the trail. Beautiful but short, approx 2+km. Would hope to see more connectivity of Lower Peirce trail to other nature reserves trails. Also hope to see the authorities doing patroling to catch visitors smoking
