The first of its kind in Singapore, Native Garden creates attractive landscapes using the indigenous plants of Singapore. With more than 100 species of plants, this public native plant garden contains the highest concentration of native plants in urban Singapore. It aims to showcase, identify and evaluate suitable native plants for our urban landscapes. With flowing streams, wood logs, stones, and native fish and plant species, the Native Garden mimics a natural landscape that potentially attracts native fauna like birds and insects, adding to the health and vibrancy of the garden.
