At National Parks Board (NParks), we are dedicated and committed to providing and enhancing the greenery of Singapore. Beginning with the first Tree Planting Campaign in 1963, NParks has come a long way in greening up our island city, with 4 nature reserves and more than 300 parks sprawled across Singapore to date and still growing. Adding to this is the extensive streetscape, or roadside greenery, that forms the backbone of our City in a Garden. An island-wide Park Connector Network is also being developed to link major parks, nature areas and residential estates.
Beyond building and rejuvenating green infrastructure, NParks is actively engaging the community to make green spaces an integral part of our lifestyle with initiatives such as the Community in Bloom project and volunteering opportunities at our parks and nature reserves.
NParks has also set up the Community in Nature (CIN) programme to reach out and engage the community with nature by providing a wide range of nature-related opportunities. Beyond encouraging understanding, appreciation, and protection of nature and biodiversity, we also hope to cultivate more champions within the community in protecting our natural environment in the long run.
As the lead agency in nature conservation, NParks has developed an urban biodiversity conservation model, which aims to conserve representative eco-systems in land-scarce Singapore. NParks also monitors and coordinates measures to enhance the presence of biodiversity in our urban landscape.
From Garden City to City in a Garden, we are dedicated to the greening of Singapore and we strive to make Singapore a lush green city to live, work and play in for all.

Singapore is a city nestled amid lush greenery found along our roadside and parks.
Close to the city centre is the Singapore Botanic Gardens, spanning an area of 74 hectares. With a heritage of more than 150 years, the Gardens has been popular with both residents and overseas visitors.
Adding to the verdant landscape are the many parks, park connectors, nature reserves, heritage roads and heritage trees found across Singapore which provide for a unique experience of the island’s natural beauty.
The Park Connector Network is an island-wide network of linear open spaces around major residential areas, linking up parks and nature sites in Singapore, allowing everyone to enjoy the splendour of these green spaces.
Mature trees are a natural heritage of Singapore and serve as important green landmarks for our island state. Designated heritage trees and heritage roads will give you a meaningful encounter with Singapore’s natural heritage and foster a greater appreciation of the nation’s biodiversity and history.
Besides the greenery traditionally found on along our roads and in our parks and nature reserves, we now also have skyrise greenery – green roofs and vertical greenery that extend and almost look like gardens in the sky.
Come explore and learn more about these things that make Singapore our City in a Garden.
