You do not have to travel far to be near nature. There are green gems nestled right in your neighbourhood.
The National Parks Board (NParks) manages 350 parks across Singapore and many of them are located near residential estates to provide easy access to green spaces, says Ms Kartini Omar, the board’s group director of parks development.
She says: “They provide people with green recreational spaces and enhance the quality of our living environment and are integral to our vision to transform Singapore into a city in a garden.”
These six parks are located near residences. Here’s what you can do in them.
