HortPark

Went to HortPark on a Learning Journey the other day and they let us into two of the prototype glasshouses that they are using to test building materials, cooling technologies and optimum temperatures and humidity for the Cool Conservatories at the future Gardens by the Bay.

The cool dry conservatory at Gardens by the Bay will have temperatures and humidity similar to the Mediterranean and semi-arid sub-tropical regions while the cool moist conservatory will be similar to tropical montane and cloud forests regions like Mt. Kinabalu and Cameron Highlands.

So exciting! Can’t wait for Gardens by the Bay to open!
