A short visit to Hort Park

Silver Garden


My adventurous walk on 19 Jun 2009 (Fri) from Mount Faber Park to the Reflections at Bt Chandu brought me to visit Hort Park for a short while.




HortPark, I personally find, is rather a challenge for yours truly to pronounce correctly. If I am not careful, I end up pronouncing it as "Hot Park". As such, I am more in the favour of referring to HortPark as the "Gardening Hub".

There were some interesting attractions at the HortPark. I am particularly attracted to the Bamboo Labyrinth. I felt a sense of peace and tranquility simply by being there. There seems a lot more interesting attractions at the HortPark but I was more keen to head towards Kent Ridge Park and the Reflections at Bt Chandu that day.

Oh morning glory! I haven't seen that for a long long time. It reminds me of my childhood....

The last time I went to Hort Park was a year ago. Wonder how it looks now?

Eastcoastlife: I heard that there is now a section which is like a Butterfly-enclosure with lots of butterflies. Was there one such enclosure a year ago?
