Exploring greenery in the city can be extremely fun for the whole family. Among the must-sees are the conservatories at Gardens by the Bay. At the Flower Dome, informative signboards will teach you and your kids about these plants and flowers from the Mediterranean regions and beyond. Over at the Cloud Forest, explore a misty conservatory filled with vegetation from the tropical highlands; its impressive 35-metre tall mountain is covered in lush vegetation from up to 2,000 metres above sea level.
Of course, any nature-themed tour in Singapore can’t do without the ever-popular Singapore Botanic Gardens. Perfect for the little ones, this UNESCO World Heritage site houses Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden, where kids can learn more about plants through their senses of touch and smell in the Sensory Garden.
HortPark at the Southern Ridges is another hidden gem for families. Sign up for a walking tour, try the gardening activities at the Lifestyle Corner or join the workshops conducted at this knowledge centre, situated in a tranquil park setting.
