As the National Parks Board (NParks) of Singapore, we are committed to enhancing and managing the urban ecosystems of our City in Nature. We are the lead agency for greenery, biodiversity conservation, and wildlife and animal health, welfare and management. We are also working closely with the community to enhance the quality of our living environment.
Our roots began with the first nationwide tree planting campaign in 1963, which kick-started our greening journey. In 1971, the first annual Tree Planting Day was launched and with that, greening has become part of Singapore's DNA.
With the aim of enhancing the community's overall well-being, and the vision of creating a City in a Garden, we have in the last several decades greened up our roads and infrastructure, transformed our parks and gardens into spaces for everyone to enjoy, and gazetted areas of core biodiversity to conserve our native biodiversity.
Today, we manage some 400 parks, 3,347 hectares of nature reserves, the Singapore Botanic Gardens, Jurong Lake Gardens, Pulau Ubin and the Sisters' Islands Marine Park. Adding to this is the extensive network of Nature Ways, and the over 300 km Park Connector Network that links major parks, nature areas and residential estates island-wide.
