We have come a long way since then. Trees line East Coast Park from Changi Airport to the city, Park connectors offer endless explorations, canopies of greens dot our concrete high rise structures, and the jewel at Gardens by the Bay.
When we are approaching Singapore on a plane, it is not hard to spot “green pockets” everywhere. We can reach a park, garden, or nature reserve within minutes. In fact, “Garden City” tagline has been transformed into “City in a Garden”.

As part of the celebration, there are a series of activities throughout 2013. Click here for the details. Did you spot the old swings and merry-go-round at Raffles Place, they were immensely popular with those working in the CBD area !
Last week, Daddy brought Boon Wee and Boon Yee to Botanic Gardens to commemorate 50th Greening anniversary. We were brought back to the 80’s F&B and games 🙂
We do not have the time to cover every parks and gardens yet, but for those adventurers out there, you can try nPark’s nature trails out there. We recommend Southern Ridges and Tree Top walk for families.
Over the weekend, bring your family our for some fresh air, enjoy the greenery. Be it walking, jogging, cycling or blading, enjoy a family moment 🙂
