Henderson Waves Bridge
It is 71.11m above sea level
After dinner we decided to go to Henderson Wave Bridge to have a walk and is our first time there too, indeed a nice place with the cool breeze. Admire the beautiful skyline as you stroll across this 274 metre-long pedestrian bridge that spans Henderson Road to connect Mount Faber Park to Telok Blangah Hill Park. At 36m above Henderson Road, Henderson Waves is the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore.
The bridge is also worth visiting for its artistic, distinctive wave-like structure consisting of a series of undulating curved "ribs". These “ribs” also double up as alcoves providing shelter to the public.
Joggers, couples and families with children are a common sight on Henderson Waves during weekends. The bridge has also become a popular photography location in recent months for wedding couples posing against the scenic skyline.
The bridge takes on a different look at night, with the wave-form illuminated with attractive LED light from 7pm to 2am daily.
