National Parks Board (NParks) is responsible for providing and enhancing the greenery of our City in a Garden. Beyond building green infrastructure, NParks is actively engaging the community to enhance the quality of our living environment.
NParks manages over 350 parks and 4 nature reserves. Adding to this is the extensive streetscape, or roadside greenery, that forms the backbone of our City in a Garden. An island-wide Park Connector Network is also being developed to link major parks, nature areas and residential estates.
As the lead agency on biodiversity conservation, NParks has developed an urban biodiversity conservation model, which aims to conserve representative eco-systems in land-scarce Singapore. NParks also monitors and coordinates measures to enhance the presence of biodiversity in our urban landscape.
NParks welcomes educators and students to visit our verdant green spaces and discover the benefits of greenery, or embark on a learning journey to explore the distinct flora and fauna available in our forests. Our teaching and learning resources, as well as our programmes for schools, will help instil a love for the outdoors in students. We also have various activities within our parks and gardens, to allow parents and children to spend time in and with nature.
