Public Engagement 2016

The concept design for Jurong Lake Gardens West was completed in 2015.

For Jurong Lake Gardens Central and East, six shortlisted teams participated in a tender for design consultancy services. The consultancy covers the concept design for Jurong Lake Gardens Central and East, and their integration with Jurong Lake Gardens West and its surroundings.

Jurong Lake Gardens Central and East

In October 2016, a consultant team was awarded the tender for developing the masterplan and concept design of Jurong Lake Gardens Central and East, and their integration with Jurong Lake Gardens West.

In developing the masterplan for Jurong Lake Gardens Central and East, the appointed team considered the need to conserve nature and memories by retaining existing nature and biodiversity hotspots while enhancing the gardens sensitively. The masterplan focuses on four key areas:

  • Tropical Horticulture and Garden Artistry
  • Nature and Sustainability
  • Community
  • Science

Jurong Lake Gardens Central and East will be designed with a landscape that is complementary to Jurong Lake Gardens West. While Jurong Lake Gardens West will focus on the restoration of natural habitats and nature-themed family recreation, Jurong Lake Gardens Central will feature tropical horticultural gardens within a natural and rustic setting. Show gardens will bring out the colours and textures found in the tropics, and feature unique tropical flora including flowering trees, ornamentals and edibles. A series of ponds, water terraces and streams will be featured in aquatic gardens, and illustrate water remediation with plants. These vibrant and exciting landscapes will be adorned with garden art and offer programmes for the community. They are complemented with flexible spaces to cater for corporate, private and community events, and science educational programmes.
