The ageing Jurong Lake Gardens which includes the Chinese and Japanese Gardens is set to undergo transformations later this year after more than 14,000 suggestions and feedback given by the public to NParks.
Many iconic buildings and features in the Chinese and Japanese Gardens will be retained as NParks noted that they hold special memories for many Singaporeans.
One of the new designs to the transformations include a new Aquatic Gardens which will feature the largest collection of water lilies in Singapore – over 140 varieties originating from around the world showcased within the water terraces.
Park visitors will also have opportunities to get close to biodiversity and nature at the new Nature Rambling Trail – a series of restored tropical freshwater stream habitats filled with aquatic flora and fauna.
Flower lovers can head to the new Floral Show Garden that will showcase colourful and vibrant floral displays that will be refreshed seasonally. Visitors will also be able to book the space for events at this venue.
Construction will be completed progressively from 2020 onwards. Jurong Lake Gardens West, which is currently under development, is slated to open in early 2019.
The public is can continue to share feedback and suggestions to NParks from now till end April 2018.Learn more from NParks
