HortPark, the gardening hub, is a one-stop gardening hub that brings together gardening-related recreational, educational research and retail activities under one big canopy in a park setting. It is a knowledge hub for plants and gardening and provides the platform for the industry to share best practices and showcase garden designs, products and services. This 23-hectare regional park in south-western Singapore is also a park connector, connecting Telok Blangah Hill Park to Kent Ridge Park.
As a gardening hub, HortPark aspires to nurture a gardening culture by focusing on 3 key areas of:
1. learning and education;
2. industry partnership and collaboration;
3. events and activities.
