Dairy Farm Nature Park

Perhaps coincidentally, since I wrote about Alfred Russel Wallace in early August, there were several further reports in the local newspapers about Wallace. The culmination of which was the opening of the Wallace Education Centre last weekend along the new Dairy Farm Trail at the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve.

Today I took an early Sunday morning stroll along this trail. More specifically, to see the Wallace Education Centre. Unfortunately, today being a public holiday, it was CLOSED! Hmmm, doesn't make much sense, does it? You'd expect more people to visit on a holiday.

In line with the conservation nature of the project, the Wallace Education Centre is located in a refurbished former cowshed. You can still see the remnants of the previous dairy farm that surrounds the Centre.

Anyway, the stroll was nice and peasant but it was very humid amidst the rain forest. And unbelievably crowded. Here is a video of the trail leading to the Wallace Education Centre. (as promised)
