A corner of Sun Plaza Park in Tampines has been transformed into a therapeutic garden. The 1,700 square metre Sun Plaza Park Therapeutic Garden is located not too far away from the main central plaza where the restrooms are located.
The Sun Plaza Park Therapeutic Garden has only one entrance and exit. This takes you into the garden where there are a wide collection of shade tolerant plants including palms and aroids, such as the Silver Joey (Johannesteijsmannia magnifica) and Mojito Elephant Ear (Colocasia esculenta ‘Mojito’).

Beside the raised planters that allow you to get up close to various plants, there are several other sections within the therapeutic garden.
The Garden Nook Trail is made up of several meandering paths. Planted along the path are dense and diverse biodiversity-attracting plants. You can also pause to enjoy the fragrant plants along the trail.
Take a walk along the Stepping Stones. This offers a more naturalistic pathway where you can take a slow stroll and enjoy the greenery surrounding you.
The Stepping Stones connects the Garden Nook Trail to the Sensory Walk.
Follow the other paths to reach the shelter and also appreciate an unusual looking sculpture that looks like it is encouraging you to make use of all your senses.
Kids will enjoy heading over to the Beads Maze.
Made out of natural materials, this highly tactile element of Sun Plaza Park Therapeutic Garden features wooden beads made from recycled timber. It sits on top of logs recycled from a Senegal Mahogany tree.
The Bead Maze is intended to improve children’s hand-eye co-ordination and cognitive skills as they move the beads through the maze.
The Sun Plaza Park Therapeutic Garden is a contemplative space where visitors can stop by to reflect and unwind in nature.
