National Parks Board (NParks)

Public Sector Science and Research

At National Parks Board (NParks), we are dedicated and committed to providing and enhancing the greenery of Singapore. Beginning with the first Tree Planting Campaign in 1963, NParks has come a long way in greening up our island city, with 4 nature reserves and more than 300 parks sprawled across Singapore to date and still growing.  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.

Beyond building and rejuvenating green infrastructure, NParks is actively engaging the community to make green spaces an integral part of our lifestyle with initiatives such as the Community in Bloom project and volunteering opportunities at our parks and nature reserves. 

NParks has also set up the Community in Nature (CIN) programme to reach out and engage the community with nature by providing a wide range of nature-related opportunities. Beyond encouraging understanding, appreciation, and protection of nature and biodiversity, we also hope to cultivate more champions within the community in protecting our natural environment in the long run.

As the lead agency in nature 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.

From Garden City to City in a Garden, we are dedicated to the greening of Singapore and we strive to make Singapore a lush green city to live, work and play in for all.
