One of my favourite parks in Singapore. I normally come by while on the Southern Ridges Trail. It's very family friendly with colourful plants, interesting flora and also playgrounds. There are bus stops outside of the park to get you to nearby MRT stations

Hort Park is not a touristy place. Most of the time, it's quiet with some peaceful walkers. Entrance is free and park is opened til 10pm daily. Garden is well very clean and well maintained with themed gardens and playgrounds great for children. Many toilets as well as drinking-water stations to drink from and fill your bottles with. On weekends,... More

We came here yesterday whilst also visiting Kent Ridge Park and the nearby Reflections at Bukit Chandu. We visited Hort Park last of the 3 by which time it was about 11am and beginning to get quite warm outside. There's a playground for children here and a series of greenhouses to look at, and you can walk right through to... More

Hort park is a small park with a lot of smaller parks and attractions in it. There's a children's play area and a pricey restaurant, a bunch of greenhouses and a horticultural nursery, a very humble butterfly park and a few mini-parks featuring species from Asia, herbal plants, and so on.

Colourful park forming part of the Southern Ridges route. There are numerous well tendered flower beds, pond, children’s play area, refreshments, toilet facilities with drinking water fountains, and numerous places to sit and relax. There is also a large horticultural nursery, which appears to be larger than the park itself, but did not appear to be open to the general... More

Hort park is compressed between the SP Jain management institute and the IT park on the other side. This was my 2nd visit to Hort park. Its a small area connecting the Alexendra garden trail. The place is not at all crowded. On both the visits we found very few people visiting this park. It can be a good place... More

This is part of the Southern Ridges walk and a beautiful place to start on a trek. Unfortunately, there is renovation going on at the moment so there were some obstacles to avoid and paint fumes. Otherwise, a well- maintained and scenic walk for sure!

Pleasant enough to stroll around, and has an exhibition area. You can get gardening advice here. The treetop walk towards Mount Faber starts at the top entrance on Alexandra Road, and at the bottom of Hort Park you can take the treetop walk to Kent Ridge Park. Worth a trip, especially if you combine it with Kent Ridge.

We happened upon Hort Park as part of our Southern Ridges hike. It was a lovely place to have a bit of a rest. Free park with lots of tips for gardeners. We sat in the cute little café and had a cold drink before continuing on our hike.

Hortpark is a mostly outdoor park with a gardening theme. There are lots of small themed gardens with displays giving hints on how to take care of the plants there, as well as an indoor exhibit on indoor gardening. It’s got some interesting stuff, but the majority is outside and unshaded, which made it slightly less enjoyable. There’s also a... More
