    Thanks, the parks are everywhere, each has its own theme or specialty.

    Hort park is in the midst of a whole stetch of reserves called the "Southern Ridges". its a trial connecting hills and tracks together.

    It features landscapes from various vendors or individuals, the management then join all these together to form a huge landscape.

    It also features shops, seminar rooms rental, workshops and courses etc.

    They also have several cold rooms where they simulate climates from various regions and then grow their native plants.

    They also organise monthly sale where they invite people to sell their cuttings and stuffs...

    Cheers
    Vincent

    Thanks everyone.

    The park is in Alexandra Road, Very near to PSA building.

    There are a lot more parks in Singapore. I will update everyone with pictures if I can.
