The Singapore Garden Festival 2016 is now taking place at the Gardens By The Bay from 23rd July 2016 to 31t July 2016. I had attended Singapore Garden Festival in 2008, 2010, 2012, missed out 2014 and back again to the 2016 edition of Singapore Garden Festival. I like the many different flowers, gardens, plants and gardening on display at Singapore Garden Festivals over the past few editions, it’s really beautiful and I was able to get close to the flowers and gardens.
Singapore Garden Festival 2016 is their largest till date, spanning 9.7 hectares across The Meadow, Flower Dome and Bayfront Plaza. This is not just a display of designer gardens and concepts, this is also a great and fun community event for people to learn more about gardening in their community open spaces and in their homes too. On the opening day of Singapore Garden Festival 2016, I saw huge groups of community clubs, centres, societies coming down to visit the festival.
There are many things to do and enjoy at Singapore Garden Festival 2016, besides visiting and enjoying viewing the flora and fauna, visitors can also enjoy music performances, talks, workshops, retail and food there! More information can be found here on Singapore Garden Festival website!
