About NParks

About NParks

Committed to providing and enhancing the lush greenery that we see around us every day, NParks defines what it truly means to be a City in a Garden.  Much more than the green infrastructure, NParks strives to improve quality of life by creating recreational experiences and lifestyles unique to our urban city.  We manage over 350 parks and 4 nature reserves, as well as the island-wide Park Connector Network linking major parks and residential areas.

As Singapore’s lead agency on nature conservation, NParks monitors and coordinates measures to ensure the health of Singapore’s biodiversity.  This supports the overall thrust of our urban biodiversity conservation model.  Apart from conserving representative eco-systems in land-scarce Singapore, we also work with partners to sensitively infuse biodiversity into our urban landscape.

Since 1 April 2019, NParks is also the lead agency, and will provide one-stop service, for animal and wildlife management, as well as animal and plant health.  The Animal and Veterinary Service, a cluster of NParks, will manage animal welfare issues and human-animal interactions.  We will work closely with the community and other stakeholders to enhance Singapore’s positioning as a City in a Garden.
