  • Came here once to meet up a client around the entrance area so didn't really get a chance to explore the inner hortpark. The ambience here is great. The violets here are blue, roses are red, daisies are yellow and the pond is great. Will definitely visit this place again with my wife to have some romantic moments like French kissing in the park etc.
  • This park is great for family outing, there is plenty of things for the kids to do and learn. The park is very nicely designed and well maintained. It is usually very quiet on weekdays unless there is a school outing. It is a good place to learn more about plants and horticulture. It is connected to Kent Ridge park and the Southern Ridges, so those want more workout can go beyond the park. Th park itself is a wonderful place to chill out and spend quality time in a beautifully landscaped garden.
  • Very well-maintained. Provision of cool rooms to admire indoor plants and relax makes the place very inviting. Serene place for relaxation at the deck. Suitable for kids to explore garden plants and play at the playground.
  • Beautiful greens and environment! Thank you NParks for taking great care of it! Need to say more? 😉
  • Apart from the beauty of the place, management sucks. Did an event there and they arrived late to open the venue, no support throughout the event. Seriously would not conduct another event there again if I have the choice.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
