Dairy Farm Nature Park is a rustic environment with multiple trails for hiking, walking, jogging and biking, the 63-hectare DFNP offers a host of recreational activities and amenities such as a nature trail and former quarry. This park also offers an well documented information centre as in Wallace Education Centre which is also the main attraction and, Singapore’s first field study hub for schools. Formerly a cow shed, the Wallace Education Centre now houses the Wallace Environmental Learning Lab (WELL), as well as an interpretative centre, where visitors can learn about the changing landscapes of Dairy Farm and Bukit Timah Nature Reserve through various exhibits. As it no longer functions as a dairy farm, there aren’t any real cows at Dairy Farm Nature Park. Nearby is the Wallace Trail which is named after Alfred Wallace to honour his contributions to natural science. A contemporary of Charles Darwin, Wallace is the other "father" behind the theory of evolution. In 1854, Wallace stopped over in Singapore during his journey to the Malay Archipelago, and collected many species of beetles in the vicinity of the Dairy Farm site.
