Taking bus 199 from Boon Lay Interchange, we stopped at the bus stop outside Cleantech One and walked for three mins to JTC Launchpad building. There is a linkway to the garden from here. This garden is next to the Thow Kwang Pottery.
It provides a respite for the working community within the business park as well as the public to connect with nature.
JEG has four areas - Summit Forest, Wildlife Corridor, Stream Ravine and Freshwater Swamp Forest - seamlessly interspersed with building parcels.
The green features include a holistic stormwater management system to collect rainwater for toilet flushing and irrigation.
It is a very quiet garden probably due to its out of the way location.

Jurong Eco-Garden (JEG) is the “green lungs” of CleanTech Park (CTP). It's essentially a beautifully set-up with bio-sustainability features for the working community within the business park, the residential precinct nearby.

Situated at the centre of CleanTech Park, Jurong Eco-Garden diverges itself into four themes – Summit Forest, Wildlife Corridor, Stream Ravine and Freshwater Swamp Forest that intersperse with building parcels.

Approximately 5-ha in size, Jurong Eco-Garden is the first development in Singapore to achieve the BCA-NParks Green Mark Platinum Award in the New Parks category.

Personally, I would advise ONLY nature lovers to visit this garden, as the location and accessibility can be an issue (those with private transportation would be ideal).

Some things to be would be :
1) Jogging
2) Wildlife macro photography
3) Bird watching
4) Learn about biodiversity and stormwater management

P.S - there is no food or drink vendor at this moment. But the washroom has water dispenser should visitors be thirsty. Parking space can be limited especially during weekends.

Jurong Eco-Garden is a park surrounding Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle. It's quite original in having a letter X shape with four distinct wings. You can explore each wing separately but the most interesting one is at lower end with a short (15-20 min walk) nature trail that would take you through a forest with different types of scenery. It's a beautiful place off the beaten tourist path and I recommend visiting it together with the Pottery Jungle - they really complement each other. Admission to both places is free.

A beautiful nature park which sadly has closed today for deforestation and transformation to a transport hub. It’s been partially closed and parts fenced off for some time. Tragically a reality of development. Some beautiful wildlife was to be seen here. Shed a tear for those birds, insects and animals displaced . Tragically sad.

A small park but still good to visit. It is surrounded by some factors and near to a pottery wholesaler.

The pottery has both expensive n affordable sections

Sited within the Jurong CleanTech Park, it is a small garden carved out of the swamp to provide a green relief to the otherwise mundane university and industrial estates in this out-of-the-way location.

It is a park that showcases some of the ecological efforts and ideas that can be adopted by a Green City, such as recycling of rain water for water the plants and even flushing the toilets. Also a learning centre for kids to learn about plants cycle, from growth to decomposition.

Not a tourist stop per se, but a place to explore if you have ran out of options.

It is pseudo Eco - thats my feeling, because they cleared some jungle to create it (and jungle doe smuch more to keep the air quality good) - this garden is mostly paved with concrete, some small pants, rage territory but not even a community garden there. It is very well kept, but is not remarkable in any way. I hardly ever see any people there, I've now gone several times on my way to Pottery jungle - that is a true gem if you are in this area, easy to get to from Jurong Eco garden (the garden leads to it) and is truly beautiful, versatile and historic. The only nice thing I saw in Jurong eco garden was their butterfly garden with freely flying butterflies that are attracted by bright and scented plants. Singapore has so many beautiful parks and gardens, this is not one of the special ones.

This newly open (June 2014) 5ha garden is a nice place for jogging or strolling in the greenery environment. There is a km long nature trail where you could sight some local and migrating birds. There are wild monkeys too. More importantly the garden is very educational with many explanatory signboards located all over the garden, illustrating the sustainability and biodiversity preserved. Another highlight is a small butterfly garden which is planted with butterfly-attracting plants.

Incorporated in the garden layout there are two existing and still operational wood firing pottery kilns. These are likely the only two operational kilns in Singapore. Many of us may not have seen a kiln before thus it is quite an experience to see it.

If you could spare 2 to 3 hours to enjoy the greenery and to learn a bit more on nature, Jurong Eco-Garden Singapore is the right place.

Extremely secluded and 'not so easy' to find but that's the good part because it ain't crowded (you'll probably meet a stranger in every 30 mins).

Nice, clean (not so quiet because its just beside a highway).

Generally, its an excellent place for nature lovers.

This garden is hidden away from the traffic flow and site next to Thow Kwang Pottery, aka Dragon Kiln entrance. For those who have transport, you can either leave the vehicle at the Cleantech Loop or just the small empty plot of land leading to Thow Kwang Pottery.

The path leading to this garden can be seen prominently. The garden has 4 sections, take your take time to wonder around. There are butterflies in the morning, a central pond. If you are lucky, you may be able to spot a kingfisher.

Since the opening of the park till my recent visit, it is in need of a good maintenance.
