While walking thru' the Gardens yesterday evening, I saw a greyish giant monitor lizard (5-6' long) at the bushes near the cement ground, opp the Orchid Garden entrance. I just wonder whether it is deliberately left there wandering about the gardens? It seems quite scary with its long tongue protruding frequently. I too notice there are little children running and elderly folk walking around and I hope it does not attack people one day!

Ok, this place is nothing if not a park. But these days, it's become more of a construction site with a dash of park. I don't know about the Tanglin side but at the other end i.e. the NUS Law Faculty, it is actually painful to even talk about it. Otherwise, it is a nice venue for picnics, or just to reenact the extremely romantic scene where Amidala and Anakin rolls down the little hill, they kind of kiss and -cut-
A very relaxing place to read a book or use your laptop to work in. This place is very interesting with its inclusion of many species of plant life and its carefree atmosphere. Come here to relive stress accumulated at work.
A good place to bring my nephew and niece as they love running around the huge grounds and exploring all the different plants and insects here. It's a very relaxing place that's good for the family and relaxing.
If you want to get close to plants and nature. come to botanical garden. They provide variety of plants, and flowers. You can bring your childrens to learn more about different plants
