Come and spend a morning exploring the heartlands at the beautiful Jurong Lakeside Garden. Opened in 2019, care was taken to conserve the existing natural biodiversity during development, and you will see this during this tour.

Our outing will start at one of the most Instagramable Starbucks in Singapore, before we take to the lake to explore some of the gardens by kayak. Grab a glimpse of the Chinese and Japanese Gardens (currently under development) from the water, while you explore this picturesque lake.

After drying off, we will take a walk around the Lakeside Garden, taking in many of the highlights, including the Grasslands, Rasau Walk, the Canyon and the Forest Ramble. We will take a look at the Lone Tree sculpture, enjoy the vast array of flora and have a chance to chat to some locals working in their allotment gardens along the way. Fingers crossed, we may even see some local wildlife including otters, monitor lizards, herons, kingfishers, dragonflies and butterflies.

Our tour will conclude with an optional casual meal close to the park (at own cost).

*There will not be a professional guide for this outing.
