Gardens by the Bay: Supertree Grove

Gardens by the Bay

Supertree Grove
Right after venturing out of “Jurassic park; The Lost World” of Gardens by the bay – in Singapore, we took a short walk along a lush path that led us to the Supertree Grove…after having our early dinner!
*Burps!
In this final installation of Singapore’s Gardens by the bay, we explore: The Supertree Grove.
———————————————————————————————-
Nestled amid the towering Supertrees, this enchanting grove provides an inviting setting for events. In the evenings, this area and its surrounding horticultural themed gardens magically transform to offer an excellent ambiance with special lighting effects.
There are a total of 18 Supertrees, all located within Bay South at Gardens by the Bay. Out of the 18 Supertrees, 12 are situated in the Supertree Grove while the remaining 6 are placed in clusters of threes near the Arrival Square and Dragonfly Lake.
These unique trees of up to 16 stories in height can be found all around the Gardens.
A 128-meter-long aerial walkway connects the two 42-meter Supertrees in the Supertree Grove and enable visitors to take in a different view of the Gardens from a height of 22 meters.
Providing scale and dimension to the Gardens while marrying the form and function of mature trees, the Supertrees also create height to balance the tall developments in the Marina Bay area.
Taking a stroll along the OCBC Skyway, the 128-meter long walkway that connects two Supertrees at the Supertree Grove, and taking in different views of the Gardens will prove very satisfying.
Chill out at the 50-meter Supertree-top bistro and be captivated by the panoramic views of the Gardens as well as the surrounding Marina Bay area.
11 of these Supertrees are embedded with environmentally sustainable functions like photo-voltaic cells to harvest solar energy.
The Supertrees are made of four parts: reinforcement concrete core, trunk, planting panels of the living skin, and canopy.
Over 162,900 plants comprising more than 200 species and varieties of bromeliads, orchids, ferns and tropical flowering climbers are planted on the Supertrees.
On top of these Supertrees, you’ll get very good views of Singapore’s cityscape!
Here you see the Marina Bay Sands or MBS for short.
MBS is a world famous hotel and has probably surpassed the Merlion as the mascot of Singapore.
The music festival starring Aerosmith was held right here at the foot of MBS, right in the meadows of Gardens by the Bay.
Anyhow…Can you spot the rooms up there…?
And this here, is the Singapore Flyer. A Ferris wheel which I heard overtook the London Eye in terms of size, thereby – making it the biggest Ferris wheel in the world!
 
OCBC Bank is the largest sponsor of Gardens by the Bay to date, with sponsorship of OCBC Skyway and the OCBC Garden Rhapsody.
When night falls, watch as the Supertrees come alive with a dazzling myriad of light displays bursting across the sky.
Visiting the Supertree Grove twice, once in the day and once come nightfall, is highly recommended as both timings provide you with a very different feel and view of the area!
