The newly opened Bukit Gombak Park promises to be a great destination in the West for families to spend time outdoors and together!

Lighting Hours: 7:00 pm to 7:00 am
The 4.8-hectare Bukit Gombak Park is located on a hill and provides the surrounding families with a venue to enjoy nature, have some outdoor fun and be closer to nature. There are 3 access points for visitors to access the park, this includes the main entrance at Bukit Batok West Avenue 5, nearby to Block 394 and another from Pavilion Park.
Hill Trek & Butterfly Garden
A 400m-looped hill trek, which includes a flight of 108 steps, provides a panoramic view of the surrounding forest and greenery when you reach the summit. Trekking up 45m, you will also find a butterfly garden which features a wide variety of butterflies and butterfly-attracting plants.
First Dog-Run In Bukit Gombak
Dog owners will rejoice to the first dog run in the Bukit Gombak area. The dog run is sited on a hill with a sloped terrain for dogs to run unleashed, and benches for dog owners to rest.
Nature Inspired Playground
Located at the base of the park is a nature-inspired playground which includes a slide built into the natural sloped terrain (this reminds us of the slides at Jubilee Park) and play equipment such as balancing beams, wooden obstacles, stepping stones and swings for the kids to play at too!
Next to the playground is an outdoor fitness area that parents can exercise at.
