Sang Nila Utama Garden
This picturesque spot is in Fort Canning Park, within easy reach of 4-star hotels in Singapore that are in the Queenstown area. Named after a Palembang prince, this picturesque site lies within Javanese-style split gates; here, you will find an area with animal statues that recreates a 14th-century Southeast Asian palace garden.
Enchanting HortPark is part of the Southern Ridges. Located near Telok Blangah Hill Park and properties like Park Hotel Alexandra, it’s a wonderful spot to relax and take photos of beautiful blooms. There are various themed areas such as the Butterfly Garden, Balinese Garden and Pitter Patter Potter Garden ideal for kids.
Ng Teng Fong Roof Garden
This hidden garden can be found at one of the city’s most well-known attractions, the National Gallery Singapore. After you’ve had your fill of taking in the art, head to the rooftop where you will find this tranquil spot of greenery; there’s a water feature here along with art installations amidst stunning city vistas.
At the East Coast Park, you will find Raintree Cove, a perfect spot for young and old alike. There’s a log garden here so you can just sit back and enjoy the scenery or heart to heart chats with loved ones. Amidst a massive lawn, you will also find other serene gardens, while the multi-swing set will be a hit with kids.
