|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.
HortPark opens to the public with Singapore's one-stop gardening carnival, the GardenTech 2007.
HortPark, official opening in April 2008, is Southeast Asia's first one-stop gardening and lifestyle hub. It is developed at a cost of $13 million.
There is a HortPark Garden Tour, please visit Nparks website, under HortPark page view Workshops and Activities.
HortPark has interactive and fun-filled programmes for learning and education. There is also a calendar of events and activities to generate and sustain long-term interest.
A free guided tour to Butterfly Garden - HortPark's latest attraction - will be organised from 9am to 11am every last Saturday of each month.
