Minister for National Development & Second Minister for Finance Lawrence Wong is taken on a tour of Gardens by the Bay’s newest attraction The Canyon by its designer, Japanese landscape architect Jun-ichi Inada (right).

The Canyon, Gardens by the Bay's newest attraction, features the largest collection of sculptural rocks and over 5,900 plants from arid regions.


“What do you think that looks like?” could be an oft-heard refrain from visitors to Gardens by the Bay’s newest attraction, The Canyon. Featuring more than 60 one-of-a-kind rock forms naturally sculpted by Mother Nature, the 0.4 hectare rock garden launched today by Lawrence Wong, Minister for National Development & Second Minister for Finance, seeks to take visitors on a journey of discovery and imagination.
 
Designed by established Japanese landscape designer Jun-ichi Inada, The Canyon, which is located just steps away from the Far East Organization Children’s Garden, encourages the young – and young at heart – to unleash their imagination as they wander through the 400-metre-long dragon-shaped trail, forming their own stories as they explore the natural rock forms.
 
Complementing these rocks are over 5,900 plants from arid regions specially selected for their interesting qualities, as well as four sculptures. 
 
Dr Kiat W. Tan, CEO of Gardens by the Bay, said, “Nature has many marvellous elements, and while flora is much celebrated at Gardens by the Bay, The Canyon offers a different perspective by showcasing the beauty in rocks. We hope that this is a place that will inspire a sense of wonder in children, especially since the young have such unfettered imagination.”
