We love that Singapore is a green city. With many parks and gardens in our country to explore, it’s a great way to spend the day. Other than the flora, fauna and playgrounds to enjoy, there are also many parks with restaurants that one can dine in when the tummy starts to rumble. Here are some restaurants in parks that you can visit.
