So what’s the deal with Gardens by the Bay?
The Gardens by the Bay are three public gardens with a total land area of 1,010,000 m2 in Marina Bay. Built on reclaimed land, the three gardens of Bay South, Bay East and Bay Central are managed by the National Parks Board (NParks). Bay East (open as an interim garden) and Bay Central remain in development.
Bay South, the largest of the three gardens at 540,000 m2, was the first to open to the public on 29 June 2012. The garden showcases tropical blooms and colourful foliage, and is home to the showpiece Supertrees. Inspired by the giant trees of the rainforest, each of the 18 steel-framed, concrete structures is covered with nearly 163,000 plants of more than 200 species and varieties, including bromeliads, orchids and tropical flowering climbers.
