(500+ reviews on the web)
Garden Nature / Park
Built in the Chinese Imperial style, Chinese Garden offers more than just colorful plants and landscapes. The attraction includes a pavilion, tea house, and museum. Step under pagodas, stroll across bridges, and view architecture modeled after that of the Sung dynasty at these 13.5 hectare (more than 33 acre) gardens. Professor Yuen Chen Yu designed these gardens in 1975 and they have since been enjoyed by the public. Take a walk through the Bonsai Garden, stop by during a festival, or bring your kids to the Live Turtle and Tortoise Museum housed on site.

  • Beautiful, clean, well maintained and spacious garden. Best of all there's no entrance fee. If you only want to see one garden while in Singapore, I would choose the Botanic Gardens, but Chinese Garden is in my opinion more relaxing.
  • Wished there was more life to this place. Maybe some new food and beverage establishment? Otherwise a nice place for a workout.
  • A nice, spacious place to visit. Good spots for taking pictures available. Consider visiting this place around sunset or early in the morning, since the weather can be quite sunny and hot.
  • A fantastic place to run, relax, walk around and meditate. Easy access, just get on the MRT Green line towards Jurong East and set down a Chinese Garden. There are various paths where to run, a full loop is around 4.5 Km. It is very quite and there is loads of people training especially martial arts training.
  • Loved it!!! A very spacious park... Very clean.. Trees and plants are well maintained.. The entrance is free.. A must visit place in Singapore.
