Leave the concrete jungles where they are and step into a sea of green. This week, the Gojek team takes you to our favorite parks – as always, remember to take nothing but photos, and leave nothing but footprints.

For the bot heads: Singapore Botanic Gardens

Where: 1 Cluny Road

Boasting the world’s largest orchid display, gardens dedicated to ginger and medicinal herbs, and even one for children, the Singapore Botanic Gardens is paradise for everyone obsessed with plants. Or, bring your picnic baskets and wind down to the occasional free musical acts at the Gardens’ Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage.

For the introverts: Hindhede Nature Park

Where: Along Hindhede Drive

Want some peace and quiet far away from the rest of Singapore? At the foot of Bukit Timah Hill rests a Hindhede Nature Park – the physical pause button you’ll need from society after a long week at work. Sit down, watch the birds, or simply take in the quarry.

For the culture vulture: Fort Canning Park

Where: Hill Street / Canning Rise / Clemenceau Avenue / River Valley Road

Fort Canning Park plays host to celebrations of the Singapore Bicentennial until 15 September. The park also boasts nine gardens, of which some are named after the country’s former leaders – perfect for a romantic, post-dinner date stroll, especially if you’re both history buffs.

For the water babies: Lower Seletar Reservoir Park

Where: Yishun Avenue 1 / Lentor Avenue

Dip your toes in all the blue this park has to offer. With a play area for children, a jetty that extends into the reservoir, a fishing deck, and water sport equipment rentals, you’re well equipped for all your Avatar-inspired, water-bending adventures.

For the homebodies: Sembawang Park

Where: End of Sembawang

This is pretty much a standard park with a jetty for fishing, barbeque pits for friends and family, roads for jogging, and a playground for the kids. Arguably less crowded than its Pasir Ris / East Coast counterparts, Sembawang Park is also teeming with hints of its naval history, with it situated right near the likes of Sembawang Shipyard (a former British Naval Base).
