It's a very nice garden to get out of the busy city. Very pleasant to walk around with pagoda and interesting building.

Peaceful beautiful open parkland with interesting statues, plants and features to enjoy. It is well worth the climb up the 7-storey pagoda for the stunning views.dont miss the bonsai garden, some incredible specimens representing decades of tender care, some are well over 150 years old!...More

This is a bit off the normal tourist destination list, but it's worth a visit. I went towards the end of the afternoon and it was very peaceful. It's easily accessed by MRT - the station is right next door.

These are beautiful parks where you can stroll for hours. The last time I was there, I was able to watch several monitor lizards on the grounds and in the water. I love it.

Absolutely! They go on now and best time is of course the night time when the lights come on. Alternatively there is one going on at Gardens by the bay, along with the lights for Diwali.
