ferns and shrubs. Officials describe it as an ‘idyllic valley of verdant 
landscaping and waterfalls’ where visitors can go for a hike in

a light and sound show with special lighting effects.

For Singaporeans, it will be a playground near home where they can 
share many happy moments with their loved ones.’
