Over the past fifty years, through the meticulous integration of urban planning, environmental design, ecological know-how, and horticultural knowledge, Singapore has developed a unique urban space that seamlessly combines landscape and vertical greenery with modern architecture and heritage buildings.
Today, with rich biodiversity, strong community support, and almost half of Singapore covered in greenery in the form of streetscape, nature reserves, parks, park connectors, as well as vertical and high-rise plantings, Singapore has proven her ability to balance economic growth with environmental sustainability and is well on her way to evolving into a City in a Garden.
