Jane's Walk

Jane’s Walk is a movement of free, resident-led walking trails inspired by Jane Jacobs to explore our neighborhoods. A series of walks will be happening on the first weekend of May because Jane Jacob's birthday falls on the 4th of May. Some walks may happen simultaneously, so do check on the list of walks and decide on which one you prefer. This is my first walk and I get to learn a lot more about this little red dot. I signed up more than a couple of the walks. On the 2nd of May, it was my longest day out as I signed up for 3 walks! Below are some highlights.

Former Clifford Pier and it's red iron cast lanterns. (Hence it's also named "Ang Teng")

Remains of a village in Bukit Brown cemetery. This used to be a toilet.

Fresh water stream at Bukit Brown

"Live tomb"of Chew Geok Leong and its iconic Sikh guards. These pair are the only colored ones you can find in the whole cemetery.

Former house of Tan Yeok Nee. Pity that we did not have the privilege to go in.

Church of the Sacred Heart. Love those stained glass.
Coconuts in front of Hindu temple. What is the significance? Ever wonder?

Alexandra Canal and its development

We spotted kingfishers too!

Bird Corner in Geylang Serai

Surprise! Surprise! Surprise! Grapes are growing in this hidden garden!

I hope I would be able to blog more about these soon.


  1. Nice! I came across Jane's Walk once but couldn't join at that time then. Thanks for sharing and reminded me to go visit the site again;)!

    1. Opps! I forget to mention~ Jane's Walk happens on every 1st weekend of the month of May because it is nearest to Jane Jacob's birthday which falls on the 4th of May. Thanks for reminding me! I will update on the blog too!
