  • 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.
  • Best fun you can have roaming around the various mini gardens for half an hour if you happen to be in the area. As a tourist, do not make a special trip to get here unless you are here for a private event etc.
  • very cozy place to relax in the buildings. if they can have QR code to introduce each flower and plants more enjoyable. still under development.
  • Great urban park, integrated well with Southern ridges. Also has a great rest atea for runners, a restaurant and flower/ urban garden
  • Beautiful Park with theme gardens, local fruit trees and herbs. Pity that it is highly underutilised and not on the itinerary of both tourists and locals . In the morning, you have only a couple of retirees and maids walking the dogs. There are probably more gardeners than visitors.
