About the Gardens

  • Gardens by the Bay is an independent organisation responsible for developing and managing one of Asia’s foremost garden destinations, the Gardens by the Bay.


    The Gardens is led by a multidisciplinary team of professionals who have been involved in the greening of Singapore and had worked alongside international and local experts to develop the Gardens. It has an in-house team of skilled landscape designers, horticulturists, arborists, engineers, plant health, garden and turf management experts, as well as plant research and orchid breeding professionals, who leverage on the extensive global network of plant sources cultivated during the development days, to continuously curate and grow the Gardens.


    Guided by its vision to be a world of gardens for all to own, enjoy and cherish, Gardens by the Bay has earned numerous awards and accolades including the World Building of the Year in 2012, the President’s Design Award (Singapore) in 2013, the Outstanding Achievement Award by the Themed Entertainment Association in 2014, the Largest Glass Greenhouse (Flower Dome) in the Guinness World Records for 2015, and the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2016. These achievements are testament to the ongoing excellence of the Gardens and spurs the team towards attaining greater success.

Our Offerings

A national garden and premier horticultural attraction for local and international visitors, Gardens by the Bay is a showpiece of horticulture and garden artistry that presents the plant kingdom in a whole new way, entertaining while educating visitors with plants seldom seen in this part of the world, ranging from species in cool, temperate climates to tropical forests and habitats.


Where Wonder Blooms




    The largest of the three gardens, Bay South, delights visitors with its rich diversity of plant life and an array of leisure offerings that include dining, retail and vibrant programming. Its iconic features – the cooled conservatories and the Supertrees – have enabled whole new worlds of botanical wonder to be showcased in Singapore, in a manner and scale unprecedented in this part of the globe. Within the Flower Dome, ever-changing floral displays including crowd favourites such as Tulipmania, Orchid Extravaganza and Blossom Beats bring the beauty and diversity of the plant kingdom to life for all to enjoy.  

    While plant displays remain the focal point of Gardens by the Bay, engaging programmes and excellent service form key pillars in enhancing the Gardens’ overall visitor experience.

    The Gardens’ calendar - filled with signature festivals, music concerts and movie screenings, sports and community events, and educational workshops and school programmes – draw a wide spectrum of visitors to the Gardens. With more than 25 million visitors to date, Gardens by the Bay continues to refresh and refine its offerings, to make the Gardens a place that everyone can enjoy – a green jewel where wonder blooms.
