Excerpt:

Two new community garden trails were launched on Tuesday (Oct 24) to allow people to learn more about gardening and meet those who do so in their area.

The new trails, in Bukit Gombak-Hong Kah North and Teck Ghee, bring the total number of such trails to five, said the National Parks Board (NParks) in unveiling the new routes.

The 6km Teck Ghee trail runs through 12 community gardens, including those growing squashes, bitter gourds and tropical fruits.

The one in Bukit Gombak-Hong Kah North runs through nine gardens, including those with bonsai, passion fruit, yellow cosmos flowers and red button ginger. The trail is also around 6km long.

Visitors can explore the routes by downloading guides from the NParks website. The guides include a map of the gardens along the trail, as well as each garden’s features, opening hours and gardeners’ contact information.
