Visit to the HortPark

HortPark or also known as the Horticulture Park is Southeast Asia's first one-stop gardening and lifestyle hub. This is an additional to the many parks we have in Singapore.

My hubby took me there for a nice stroll and beca
use he is a fan of gardening, we decided to check it out. I must say the first impression at the carpark and entrance of the park was amazing as there were so many variety of flowers and there is even a pond with lots of fishes.. So pretty & cute.

We checked out the Thai restaurant for lunch.. I must say it is quite expensive :( I should have walked a bit further to have lunch at the cafe *shucks* The view just outside the restaurant was amazing.. But what took my breath away are these beautiful flowers that I took while taking my stroll at the park.

On the downside, it started to pour shortly after our walk and we also f
ound that there are some areas where the plants are not well taken care of. As compared to the Botanical Gardens, the maintenance at the HortPark was not up to par. There are certain areas and trails that were "childish" and seems to be a playground for kids instead of educational and well maintained for adults..

Nevertheless, here are some of my pictures!
