Nature Reserves, Parks & Gardens In Singapore

The Garden City of Singapore has 4 Nature Reserves, 20 Nature Areas and 350 Parks and Gardens. For a small island, Singapore has plenty of green spaces and parks for nature lovers to enjoy. Go on a walk or hike up hills, try birdwatching or cycling, check out quarries and the nearby islands still in their natural states. Breathe in the fresh air, bring back wonderful memories and leave only footprints behind. May you be inspired with the many nature options we have here in Singapore!
