About NParks Company
The history of NParks is closely interlinked with the history of tree planting in Singapore. In June 1990, the National Parks Board (NParks) was established as a statutory board under the Ministry of National Development to manage and enhance the national parks, comprising Singapore Botanic Gardens, Fort Canning Park, and the nature reserves. In July 1996, NParks was expanded to incorporate the roles of the Parks and Recreation Department.
NParks will build on what Singapore has achieved as a biophilic City in a Garden and further integrate nature into our city to strengthen Singapore’s distinctiveness as a highly liveable city while mitigating the impacts of urbanization and climate change. Singaporeans will be able to enjoy an environment that will have cleaner air and water, cooler urban temperatures, and benefits to health and well-being.
