After a visit to National Museum, one can take the escalator beside the building up to the new interpretive Farquhar Garden, named after the first resident of Singapore. There is a lovely "Let There be Peace" sculpture by Alexandra Nechita at the foot of the escalator. The artist has selected Singapore as the host nation in Asia for unveiling the first of the seven works.
Farquhar garden showcases plants which William Farquhar founded noteworthy like gambier and guava. These have been “framed” to create real-life “natural history drawings”.
This is a small garden to provide a serene break when touring the city. From there, one can also access the walkway at Kwa Geok Choo Law Library to reach Armenia Street or cross the road to Fort Canning Park which is definitely worth visiting.
