Overview

Founded in 1859 with a mission to cultivate plants of economic potential, the 52-hectare (128.5-acre) Singapore Botanic Gardens made a historic milestone in 1877 with the cultivation of Malaysia and Indonesia's first rubber plantations. Today, with more than 600,000 plant specimens, it is clearly one of the world's largest botanical reserves. The park provides a comprehensive introduction to plants in a variety of settings, from rolling lawns and orchid gardens to a tropical jungle. Other attractions include the National Orchid Garden, Visitors Centre, tea room, spice and herb gardens, and the eco-lake. A redevelopment plan is currently underway to make the park's plant collections more accessible to the public.
