Bukit Panjang Butterfly Garden is a little green spot within the estate at Petir Road and alongside Bukit Panjang Road. The small butterfly garden was established in 2013.
About the Bukit Panjang Butterfly Garden
The Bukit Panjang Butterfly Garden was the brainchild of a grassroots activist who was also a butterfly enthusiast. This led to a plot of land being set aside in front of the community hall at 213 Petir Road.
The garden is located just beside Zhenghua Nature Park, beyond which is Chestnut Nature Park and the Central Catchment Nature Reserve.

The planting of the butterfly-attracting plants in the garden was done by members of the community and volunteers. It was officially launched by Dr Teo Ho Pin on 3 November 2013.
Visiting the Garden
Visitors to the Bukit Panjang Butterfly Garden can walk around the various planter beds with the shrubbery and flowers which attracts butterflies.
There is also a sign board that provides visitors with educational information on the life cycle of a butterfly.
