A national garden and premier horticultural attraction for local and international visitors, Gardens by the Bay is a showpiece of horticulture and garden artistry that presents the plant kingdom in a whole new way, entertaining while educating visitors with plants seldom seen in this part of the world, ranging from species in cool, temperate climates to tropical forests and habitats.
The garden entertains and educates visitors with horticultural species seldom seen in this part of the world, ranging from those that grow in cool, temperate climates to those native to tropical forests.
The park consists of three waterfront gardens: Bay South Garden, Bay East Garden, and Bay Central Garden. Bay South, masterfully planned by the UK landscape architecture firm Grant Associates, is the largest of the three. This lively and vibrant garden – with its iconic Supertrees – showcases the best of tropical horticulture and garden artistry with a mass display of tropical flowers, colourful foliage and more. The soaring tree-like structures rise to heights of 25 and 50 metres, and are embedded with sustainable energy and water technologies.
These uniquely designed vertical gardens create a “wow” factor through their display of tropical flowering climbers, epiphytes and ferns. At night, the canopies come alive with lighting and projected media. Bay South also includes the Conservatory Complex, an architectural icon showcasing sustainable energy technology and comprising two beautiful glass biomes that display plants from Mediterranean and Tropical Montane regions – and two horticultural themed gardens: the Heritage Gardens and The Worlds of Plants. The Heritage Gardens reflect the history and culture of Singapore’s main ethnic groups as well as the city-state’s colonial heritage, while the World of Plants showcases the biodiversity of plant life on our planet.
