    Being one of the oldest reservoirs in Singapore, this is a site where my memory of Singapore’s natural environment was formed. I was born in the 1970s, when shopping malls and indoor playgrounds were still not common; Lower Peirce Reservoir offered me a piece of happiness in my childhood that I still treasure very much.

    About the location:

    Lower Peirce Reservoir was built in 1912 by artificially creating a standing body of water. This was for a practical reason: to meet the increasing demand for the supply of water in Singapore. More than a century old now, it has nurtured a mature secondary rainforest around the reservoir. There are an estimated 900 types of flowering plants, 100 types of ferns, and 250 animal species found in the area.
