Always be Close to Nature: Singapore Botanic Gardens
Singapore Botanic Gardens has always been a top star among recreational destinations in the country. It is a huge garden featuring many attractions with 5 gate entrances, and one of the gates is located on the nearby Nassim Road. It only takes approximately a 5-minute drive to get to the garden from the Orchard Boulevard GLS site – or one train stop via the MRT if you prefer to take public transport instead.
Singapore Botanic Gardens
One of the most famous attractions at the Botanic Gardens is the National Orchid Garden. It is where 1,000 species and 2,000 hybrids of orchids are out in full splendour. Stunning leafy arches, fountains framed by colourful orchids, and larger-than-life installations are the least you can expect when entering this garden.

The whole 82-hectare area includes a rich variety of historic features, plantings, and buildings that demonstrate the development of the garden since its creation in 1859. Other than being a famous tourist destination, the garden has been an important centre for science, research, and plant conservation – and now it can be your “backyard” as you reside in the new Orchard Boulevard condominium.
