Singapore among the leading cities in skyrise greening

National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan said Singapore’s greening campaign is moving skywards, with “wonderful results”.

He said in a blog post on Wednesday that Singapore is among the leading cities in skyrise greening.

There are over 50 hectares of rooftop greenery in public and private buildings.

He highlighted the greening efforts in public housing estates, which he said will help realise the vision of providing Singaporeans with “housing in a garden”.

Mr Khaw said many residents have been enjoying lush, green spaces at the rooftops of their multi-storey car parks (MSCP).

Besides creating a green oasis, they provide space for community interaction and helps to cool down the surroundings, with features such as community gardens, foot reflexology paths and study corners.
