Best Parks in Singapore

Here's a list of Best Parks in Singapore recommended by our experts:

Choosing the best things to do in the Garden City of Singapore is no easy feat as the city has a vast number of impressive attractions, exciting activities and day trips for all the family. Shopping may be favourite national pastime, but Singapore is more than a city of glitzy shopping malls. This tiny island nation is no concrete jungle. It is one of the most densely populated regions in the world, with nearly six million people living on just over 700 square kilometres, but the city-state has earned the nickname City in a Garden thanks to its considerable areas of green space and large percentage of green urban space. You’re never too far from the green lungs of the city! Treat yourself and your traveller buddies to a day at the park when in Singapore – because, it turns out, looking beneath the shiny surface is worth your while! The city is more than extravagant shopping and ultramodern urban experiences. Probably Singapore’s most famous garden, Gardens by the Bay is a favourite among locals and a must-visit for any tourist. Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is the oldest and largest forest reserve in Singapore - with 1.64 square kilometres of land and 40 per cent of Singapore’s species of flora and fauna. Dotted with palm trees, Changi Beach Park is one of the oldest coastal beaches in Singapore. Airplanes jetting across the sky to and from the neighbouring Changi Airport are frequently sighted here – a curious juxtaposition indeed. The beach has historical significance too as the site of multiple clashes between the Japanese and Chinese during The Second World War. Today, Changi Beach is popular with families, couples and anyone looking to enjoy the calm sound of crashing waves. We have rounded up the best parks to visit in Singapore:
