Henderson Waves - Linking Telok Blangah Hill and Mount Faber park

Travelling along Henderson Road a year or two back, i saw a giant, wavy yet pregnant looking structure being constructed high in the sky, connecting the hills by the sides of the road.

Back then, i naively thought it was going to be a research structure for the National Parks, inaccessible for the public. 

Apparently, it is the highest pedestrian bridge (yes, for the general public) in Singapore at 36 meters high!

Connecting Mount Faber Park and Telok Blangah Hill Park, this 274 meters long bridge has attracted families, joggers, nature enthusiasts and even wedding couples hoping to capture memories of this distinctive platform.

Surrounded by nature on the sides, a bird's eye view of the concrete jungle can still be seen from the front and back.

The designer has even incorporated sheltered areas (that's where the waves are) for you to rest and take in the scenery!

At night, the illumination of the bridge provides an entirely different feel from the daytime.
Romantic enough?

Henderson Wave is disabled friendly and the lights are switched off at 2am daily! Be prepared for pure darkness and maybe some hauntings after that.
