Parks, Reserves and Gardens in Singapore

All the best Parks, Reserves and Gardens in Singapore

New York is known as the Big Apple. Paris is nicknamed the City of Romance. Singapore is too known as the Garden City, and justifiably so. Lush green trees line almost every road, boulevard, and expressway. You will certainly be hard-pressed to escape the shade of trees when walking on the streets. Every major city tends to set aside “green” spaces within the city limits e.g. parks and gardens. There are numerous such places in Singapore, the locals and tourists alike visit to enjoy the fresh air and a much-needed break from the urban rush. The various noteworthy parks include East Coast ParkFort Canning ParkMacRitchie Reservoir and Mount Faber Park. Additionally, there are reserve areas, where the government has set aside the natural surroundings for conversational purposes. The Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and Chek Jawa coastal habitats are the most commonly visited. For those that long for flora and fauna, do visit the Singapore Botanical Gardens. Looking for ancient Chinese architecture like pagodas? Drop by the Chinese Garden, where there are beautiful pagodas amidst huge garden spaces. The Marina Bay area will also see the construction of the magnificent Gardens by the Bay. This three-garden attraction is slated to open in mid-2012 and will be fully completed in a couple of years. Numerous F&B outlets will open amidst the exotic environment, home to over 2000 species of plants from exotic places like Latin America, Madagascar, and the Mediterranean. Dining here will be a unique experience, with the majority of outlets opening in unusual settings. Examples include a treetop restaurant and cafes on the edge of a lake. In August 2010, Singapore hosted the inaugural Youth Olympic Games. To commemorate this milestone, the Youth Olympic Park was constructed in the Marina Bay area. Visit this unique art park featuring artworks by local youths.
