Singapore Botanic Gardens

Singapore may be a small country but it has one of the loveliest gardens in the world. On 4 July 2015 the Singapore Botanic Gardens becomes the first garden in Asia to be inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also the only tropical botanic garden on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

The Gardens is more than 150 years old, with its present site being founded in 1859.

In its early years, the Gardens played a very important role in the agricultural development of Singapore and the region through its collection, growth, experimentation and distribution of potentially useful plants. The introduction of the rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis) to Singapore and the region as a cash crop was one of its most important and well-known successes.

There are many beautiful sculptures located within the Gardens, like the one by Venessa Marston below. It was donated by Myma Thomas in memory of her late mother, Doris Thomas.

The Gardens is a lush sanctuary situated just a few minutes away from busy Orchard Road. It has beautiful lakes and well maintained lawns and paths inviting you to enjoy the peace and quiet in the gardens.

Outing by the Lake

One finds green foliage and soothing fountains. Seats are placed along walking paths and secluded corners, inviting one to rest and enjoy the scenery.
