Run in Singapore's UNESCO World Heritage Site! 

The Singapore Botanic Gardens is the only Botanic Garden in the world that is open daily from 5am to midnight. Home to a variety of attractions such as the National Orchid Garden, the Ginger Garden, the Rainforest, the Evolution Garden, the Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden and more, it is often cited as one of the best Botanic Gardens in the world.

Centrally-located, this 150-year old garden is a great running route for resident along Bukit Timah Road / Farrer Road or tourists visiting Singapore staying in Orchard Road.

A favourite picnic area for families, and a photographer’s paradise, it is large, peaceful and very well-maintained. While your kids have fun under the sun, you can squeeze in a short run.
