Tucked away at the edge of Nanyang Technological University, Jurong Eco-Garden is a hidden park.

Part of the CleanTech Park, Jurong Eco-Garden serves as an outdoor spot for those who are working in the surrounding buildings.

To reach the park, if you drive, you can park your car at the Surbana Jurong Campus car park. The building is adjacent to Jurong Eco-Park.

And once you reach Jurong Eco-Garden, you will largely have it to yourself (except perhaps when there are wildlife photographers in the area).

Jurong Eco-Garden: CleanTech Park’s Park

The “garden in an industrial park” opened back in Jun 2014. It occupies an area which was once a secondary forest.

Just next to its “neighbour” along Jalan Tawas, Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle, there is a lookout platform from which you can survey the park.

Passing by a Cleansing Biotope, you will arrive at the Central Plaza which amenities like a restroom. From here, you can take walk around a freshwater swamp.

Swamp Pavilion, Jurong Eco Garden

At the far end of the water body, there is a Swamp Pavilion where you can cross from one side of the swamp to the other.

Butterfly Garden

The other half of park is made up of the Butterfly Garden. Here, you can watch the fluttering insects flying about.

Sculpture of stones

There are some interesting looking sculptures around the Butterfly Garden.

Composting Station

You can also find a Composting Station, made up of four barrels, close to the Butterfly Garden.


What Else to Do When Visiting Jurong Eco-Garden

Jurong Eco-Garden is a relatively unknown and less visited park. 

If you do visit, we suggest pairing your visit with a stop at the Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle, which has a dragon kiln. If you do have young kids with you, you may wish to keep a close eye on them because of all the fragile items inside the Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle.

The Surbana Jurong Campus also has a modern-looking dragon playground too. 

If you wish to explore another park at NTU, you could head over to Yunnan Garden.
