Chinese and Japanese Gardens

The Chinese and Japanese Gardens are managed by JTC Corporation. Over the years, the Gardens have transformed into a popular attraction for both local and foreign visitors to Singapore. The thematic architectural elements and unique landscaped grounds of the Gardens provide a green oasis for the community living in the western region of Singapore.

History
In the early 1970s, the landscape of Jurong began to change, with the construction of factories and industries in the area. The Chinese Garden, located in Jurong was built in 1975 as part of JTC's efforts to introduce greenery to complement the industrial landscape of Jurong.  A well-known Taiwanese architect, Prof Yuen-Chen Yu was placed in charge of designing the Chinese Garden. The 13.5-ha Garden was designed and built based on classical northern Chinese imperial architectural style, specifically reminiscent of the Sung dynasty period (AD 960-1279).
