The ideal way to see the bridge is to take the Southern Ridges Walk, a five-kilometre hiking route that takes you through three major parks: Kent Ridge Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park, and Mount Faber Park are three of the most notable nature reserves in Singapore. The second two are what Henderson Waves links.

Aside from offering a view of lush tropical vegetation and creatures, a stroll on the Ridges also provides magnificent vistas of the island.

The Henderson Waves Bridge is a 274-metre-long, undulating structure that curves and twists along its length. Steel arches support the shape, which is filled in with Balau wood “ribs,” heavy hardwoods native to Southeast Asia that are only used in massive building projects.

The bridge’s form enables it to have hidden nooks and shell-like niches where pedestrians may sit and look around. The bridge is a popular location on weekends with couples, runners, and families with children since there’s plenty of space and privacy.

The bridge is lit to stunning effect by light-emitting diode (LED) lighting from 7pm to 7am every night, with visitors lingering to admire it as the sun goes down.
