I’m so glad we got to explore Labrador Park recently.
We started off at Alexandra Retail Centre where we packed a couple of thosais and Macs for a picnic. And then linked through Labrador Park MRT station to start our walk at the trail that runs alongside Berlayer Creek, one of the few remaining mangrove areas in the southern part of Singapore.
It was about 5.30pm in the evening, and lots of joggers were already on the trail.
Clear, beautiful blue skies above.
Along the trail, closer to the Nature Reserve itself, were two look-out points, where we could take a rest, grab a bite, and peer into the mangrove, checking out some thin razor-like fish that never seemed to shift in place despite the current. It was also a good day because we managed to spot a horseshoe crab, half-buried in the mud.
We didn’t spot any monkeys though, despite seeing a few of these warning signs.
By the time we were reached the Reserve, I think a good 45 minutes to an hour had already passed. Well, it’s probably slower than usual, what with toddlers, food stops, distractions, and all. We reached this resting point, which is also the start point of the Bukit Chermin Boardwalk, and our hungry bellies told us it was time to bring on the food.
The kids were happy wandering about, looking at the water, munching on nuggets and thosai and prata. The adults were enjoying the waterfront views of Keppel Harbour and Sentosa.
Just around the corner from here, at the Nature Reserve side, we found toilets and a nice green patch to laze around and watch the sunset.
All in all, it was a beautiful day and walk. I’m sure we’ll be back there again, hopefully soon.
P/S: From here, it’s a good 30-minutes walk to the end of Keppel Harbour, near Reflections at Keppel Bay. So be sure to buffer in some time if you have the kids in tow.
Have a good weekend ahead, friends!
