Sharing is caring!

The Singapore Botanic Gardens stretches from Holland Road to Bukit Timah Road. It is divided into different three main cores, the Tanglin, Central and Bukit Timah Cores.

At the Tanglin Core, there are popular fish ponds near the entrances. You can buy food to feed the fish from the information counter at the Green Pavilion. The Swan Lake is another prominent landmark of the Tanglin Core, as well as the Sundial Garden and the Swiss Ball Fountain. The Frangipani Garden is located nearby as well.

The Central Core is where you will find the Symphony Lake with the Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage at the bottom of the Palm Valley. This is popular area for picnics. There is also a Rainforest Walk, a cave waterfall at the Ginger Garden, as well as an Evolution Garden which traces the history of plants.

Over at the Bukit Timah Core, the Eco-Lake with its water fowl is popular with families. The Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden is also located in this part of the Gardens. Kids will love to play and explore around the Children’s Garden, developed specially for them. The Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden is most easily accessed by its dedicated entrance off Bukit Timah Road.
