The Gardens at its present site was founded in 1859 by an Agri-Horticultural Society and was later handed over to the government for maintenance. From an ornamental garden with roads, terraces, a bandstand and even a small zoo, it has come a long way in evolving into a leading equatorial botanic garden of 52 hectares.

Today the 139-year old Singapore Botanic Gardens is a star visitor attraction for the sophisticated traveller as well as the local resident. This Gardens possesses an array of botanical and horticultural attractions with a rich history and a wonderful plant collection of worldwide significance. Complementing these unique resources are sensitive developments providing visitors educational and recreational facilities.

The Singapore Botanic Gardens has been developed along a 3-Core Concept. The three Cores are Tanglin which is the heritage core retaining the old favourites and charms of the historic Gardens; Central which is the tourist belt of the Gardens; Bukit Timah which is the educational and recreational zone. Each Core offers an exciting array of attractions.
