The gardens are really a nice place to visit. Been there twice. Arrived from the MRT, the gardens are just less than 5mins walking. Visited the koi as well. Nothing much to say but I really enjoyed the time spent there. If you want to go for a picnic, the gardens should be on your list!

The Chinese Gardens are In poor condition,and the bonsai plants in need of a lot of care. The gardens and buildings have clearly had little time for care and attention by experts in there fields,the plants have been let go and many plants are in dire need of a lot of attention. This was to be a high point for... More

We took the MRT and walked from the MRT Station "Chinese Garden" to the entrance. We walked around in the Chinese garden and went later over the bridge to the Japanese garden. Both parts are very nice and we had a day with hardly any other visitors - despite sunny, but very hot weather. Parts of the houses were in... More

A relaxing stroll at the park. A short distance away from the MRT. You will pass thru a large park where locals playing cricket. During my time of visit Mid March. Once you enter the Chinese Garden you will see a large Pagoda with statues of famous Chinese heroes. Lots of photo opportunities of the scenery. Walked along the path... More

The gardens are easy to get to - you just walk off the MRT and you're there. It was a peaceful visit; the gardens are so large that it never felt "busy" when we were there. Lots of beautiful things to photograph. I especially enjoyed the bonsai garden - very old (150+ years!) and impressive tress. Bring snacks and drinks... More

My last visit to this local favourite had been some years ago. This morning, I was there with a friend for a morning walk and was deeply disappointed by what I saw. Instead of a Gardens that has gone from strength to strength to reflect our inheritance, it appears to have gone the other way. There were metal green hoardings... More

This came highly recommended by my friends who visited Singapore couple of years ago. I took the train from directly the airport to this place and I guess I landed here at about the perfect time to be here. Although there were morning-walkies who were jogging and walking in team or alone. The serenity and the calmness of the place... More

Very convenient to the MRT of the same name this is another nice place to touch base with greenery, wildlife and culture. The pagoda is definitely worth climbing for a great 360 view. We also popped into the turtle museum as we had 3 kids in tow. Despite my initial scepticism of keeping animals in captivity it was actually pretty... More
