Professor Yuen Chen Yu designed these gardens in 1975 and they have since been enjoyed by the public.

  • Quaint and peaceful setting with so much greenery and fresh air. Get to the top of the pagoda for a sweeping view. There are many interesting exhibits like the Confucius statue as well. The place is linked to the Japanese Gardens by a bridge. Recently became very popular as a Pokemon Go hangout given the numerous pokestops and lures.
  • Great place to hang out during the weekend. Family friendly location. However, please bring along mozzie repellent as there are lots of mozzies. Do note that Japanese Garden is nearby and it closes early too.
  • Good place to get pokemons. Dratini, dragonites and magikarps. Haven seen a lapras or snorlax yet. But till the time comes
  • If Chinese culture is your cup of tea, this is one of the places which you must head to. It is very peaceful and scenic, especially at night. And where better to sip tea and enjoy mooncakes while admiring the moon than at one of the many pavilions here?
  • I was mega jet lagged and decided to visit the Chinese garden instead of staring at my hotel wall. I arrived at the Chinese garden MRT station at 7 am and was immediately captivated by the sunrise behind the Jurong East apartment towers. It was honestly the prettiest scene I saw in Singapore. Inside the garden is a 7 story pagoda you can climb, lots of greenery, walking paths, lakes, and various other structures. It was quiet and peaceful, and I would probably visit everyday if I lived in the area.
