Gardens by the Bay is a sustainable park in the city of Singapore. It is near the Marina Bay and has diverse flora from around the world. This unique habitat uses innovative and environmentally friendly technology.
Locals and visitors from around the world can have an exclusive educational experience with nature. In fact they can discover the different innovative pavilions and learn about the sustainability and ecological aspects of each area.
For example, the Cloud Forest is a glass panelled space covering a 35-metre tropical mountain with lush vegetation and an indoor waterfall. The highest point of the mountain, the “lost world”, can be reached by an elevator. Moreover, there are two descending walkways through cloud forest vegetation and carnivorous plants.
The Far East Organisation Children’s Garden, near the cloud forest, is a playground with tall tree houses, interactive water tunnels and fish sculptures. For instance, it was made to improve children’s senses.
Moreover, the Flower Dome is a big greenhouse that recreates cool-dry climates. For instance, it has unique plants and flowers from different corners of the globe.
In the centre of Gardens by the Bay, visitors can see the Supertrees. They are uniquely vertical gardens up to 16 stories high, covered by more than 200 tropical species. Around them, there is a long aerial walkway at a height of 22 meters, with a panoramic view of the park. In addition, during the night, the Supertrees transform in the Garden Rhapsody. Lights and sound projections create a unique effect.
