An awe-inspiring new green space for Singapore:

Spanning 101 hectares, this $1 billion superpark houses over a quarter of a million rare plants and is just a five-minute walk from the city. The park comprises three gardens; Bay South, Bay East and Bay Central. From the waterfront promenade, enjoy an amazing view of the Marina Bay financial district skyline. The grounds are perfect for an evening stroll and picnic with family and friends.

You’ve been to gardens before, but have you ever stepped into a garden costing more than a billion dollars?

That’s the cost of Singapore’s newest icon, a 101 hectare-superpark, where you’ll see more than a quarter of a million rare plants in huge domed conservatories.

Less than a five-minute walk away from Marina Bay, this superpark is split into three waterfront gardens: Bay South and Bay East, with Bay Central connecting the two.

Bay South — the largest waterfront garden — is where you’ll find impressive-looking Supertrees. These are 16-storey tall vertical gardens that give you a bird’s eye view of the entire gardens. Also functional, they collect rainwater, generate solar power and act as venting ducts for the park’s conservatory.

The cooled conservatory complex here is another highlight, offering a reprieve from the tropical heat and a taste of the Mediterranean climate. At the same time, you can study the varied international plant species like baobabs, bottle trees, olive trees and date palms.

Bay East is a unique mix of pretty pavilions, lush lawns, tropical palm trees and natural blossoms of all kinds, perfect for an evening stroll or a picnic with family and friends. It also offers an amazing view of the Marina Bay financial district skyline along its two kilometre waterfront promenade.

Immerse yourself in a world of natural beauty at Gardens by the Bay when the superpark opens on 29 June 2012.
