From the National Museum, I returned to the vast Lake Gardens to have a visit. Apart from the massive lake, the park is full of many different types of trees. It is a good place to have a jog or walk in the morning and in the evening, where you can escape the hustle of the city and breathe the fresh air.
I walked back to the tall flight of stairs leading to the Bird Park, and halfway through on my left is the entrance to the Deer Park. From outside, I saw no sign of deer, but I went ahead and entered the park. After a short walk the surrounding trees opened up to a vast open space with a small valley, where I finally see the deer.
I continued exploring the park to find more greenery, but no more deer. The sheer amount is quite disappointing, but it is a beautiful place nonetheless.
After exiting the Deer Park, I found myself in a huge space in front of the lake with a very unique roof.
Walking further up, I saw a sign leading to a newly opened Bamboo Playhouse. Curiously, I crossed a bridge to see what it is.
The Bamboo Playhouse is constructed completely with bamboo, and is meant to be a place for kids to have fun. But it looked more suited to be a place for adults to relax on its raised platforms.
Eventually, I reached the northern edges of Lake Gardens. I had to walk a bit more and cross a road to reach the National Monument. At its base is an exhibition of sculptures related to ASEAN (South East Asian) values, each country represented by a sculpture.
After climbing a flight of stairs, I finally reached the top of the hill.
After resting for a bit and enjoying the beautiful views, I made my descent back into Lake Gardens, and passing the picturesque Sunken Garden.
And with this, I ended my long but fruitful walk of the beautiful Lake Gardens.
