There are several tourist attractions within the Lake, including the Chinese Garden and Japanese Garden. Keppel Hill Reservoir This abandoned and forgotten reservoir dating back to 1905 is nestled in the Mount Faber forest, and not marked out in maps today, Keppel Hill Reservoir served as a source of water for the Tanjong Pagar Dock Company, which was the forerunner of today’s Port of Singapore Authority.
The reservoir, which is an oasis of calm and a green pocket in the built up area, also used to be a swimming pool during the Japanese Occupation according to pre-war and post-war maps.
Many of which have adjoining parks with lots of activities for all ages, some require a longish walk via slightly dodgy paths, and a couple are fenced up and look like old castles which make for an interesting visit.
How many of these reservoirs have you heard of, been to, or never knew existed? Bedok Reservoir Believe it or not, Bedok Reservoir used to be a former sand quarry between 19 and was completed in 1986.
The hazards have been reduced along the main trail system and camping areas.
