Sarimbun Reservoir (Chinese: 莎琳汶蓄水池) is one of the four reservoirs in the Western Water Catchment of Singapore.
The reservoir was constructed by damming Sungei Sarimbun and widening of Sungei Karang, Sungei Hantu, and Sungei Sarimbun. It is now part of SAFTI Live Firing Area in the north, which has restricted access and only accessible through the TRMC Operations Room. The public can cut through from Bahtera Track to enter Sarimbun Reservoir area.
Sarimbun was where General Tomoyuki Yamashita landed his troops during World War II, and was engaged in the Battle of Sarimbun Beach. Sarimbun is also home to many small vegetable and fruit farms and health farms. These farms are normally owned by local entrepreneurs. Sarimbun also hosts multiple permanent campsites, especially on Jalan Bahtera. These campsites include the Singapore Scout Association's Sarimbun Campsite, Girl Guides Singapore's Camp Christine, and Ministry of Education's Jalan Bahtera Adventure Centre.
