HortPark is a one-stop gardening resource hub that brings together gardening-related, recreational, educational, research and retail activities under one big canopy in a park setting. It also serves as a knowledge centre on plants and gardening, providing planting ideas and solutions, and offering a platform for the horticulture industry to share best practices and showcase garden designs, products and services.
There are many things to do at HortPark:
Gardening – A spread of gardening activities awaits you! Nurture your green thumbs at our numerous gardening workshops or even contribute to the greenery through Volunteer Gardening at HortPark.
Family Fun – Families will be delighted by the cheerful display of blooms and garden features throughout the themed gardens in the park. Children will love exploring the Pitter Patter Potter Garden with its vibrant colours and a playground to top off the fun.
Photography – Nature photography enthusiasts will be in for a sweet treat at the Butterfly Garden while other locations such as the themed gardens are popular with wedding photoshoots.
Walking and Jogging – Linking Telok Blangah Hill Park and Kent Ridge Park, HortPark is a favourite for joggers in early mornings and evenings.
Come visit the various themed gardens and nature playgarden, participate in guided tours and workshops, or even volunteer with us.

Things To Do
Surrounded by greenery and sounds of nature, the Nature Playgarden is designed to encourage children to spend more time outdoors and reconnect with nature. Let children’s imagination run wild as they explore the nine different play features built with natural materials. Children can choose from balancing on logs and climbing through tunnels, to building teepees, cooking up an imaginary feast and more.
As a one-stop gardening resource centre, HortPark offers garden lovers a treat with the variety of themed gardens that can be found within it, such as the Therapeutic Garden. Take a stroll and explore the themed gardens today.
