HortPark

1

The newest park in Singapore and part of the island wide network of park connectors.

HortPark is a 23-hectare park located in the South-Western part of Singapore. It is the first one-stop gardening lifestyle hub in Asia that integrates a plethora of activities together under one roof in a park setting. You can find gardening-related, recreational, educational, research and retail activities here at this gardening hub that also doubles as a knowledge hub for gardening information, training & value-added services such as networking opportunities.

Nestled in the Southern Ridges, HortPark serves as a park connector that allows visitors to travel around Kent Ridge Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park and Mount Faber Park with ease and convenience. This is made possible through the elevated walkways and connecting bridges.

HortPark is equipped with the following facilities and amenities:

  • HortCentre
  • HortMart
  • Hands-On House
  • HortLawn & Event Lawn
  • Garden Patch
  • HortGardens

Aside from these features, there are also many themed gardens, of which many are adopted by sponsors. There is also a restaurant on the premises serving modern Thai cuisine.

HortPark is the perfect place to go on a casual Sunday brunch date – take a leisurely stroll around its manicured gardens and enjoy the greenery before settling down to enjoy a nice meal at the restaurant. After that, you can even buy some seeds to start your own garden at home!
