Orchard road does not only hold a special place in the hearts of many Singaporeans, but it is a part of most tourist’s bucket list when visiting this little red dot because of its iconic status as every shopper’s paradise with its luxury retail to world-class international cuisines.
Beyond this reputation, Orchard Road is also a place where friends and families gather to enjoy quality time together. To ensure the continued vibrancy of Orchard Road, government agencies have been engaging stakeholders and the public to envision the next phase of Orchard Road’s evolution.
With this, the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has announced that as part of their plans to enhance Orchard Road as a lifestyle destination, they are working with the National Parks Board to introduce new green spaces and lush planting along the signature street. It will be transformed into a lush green corridor and form part of the 6 km-long green connection that will link the Singapore Botanic Gardens, Istana, Fort Canning Park and Singapore River.
You can explore these proposed plans in detail in their exhibition, “A Green Oasis in the City: From Orchard to Singapore River” from 13 February to 12 March 2020, Monday to Saturday at 9 am to 5 pm. The exhibition will be held in The URA Centre at 45 Maxwell Road, Singapore 069118.
