    The Gardens by the Bay is a huge nature park in Singapore that opened in 2012 as part of the move to increase greenery and turn Singapore into a “City in a Garden”.

    The park is over 250 acres of forests and gardens with smooth paths connecting different areas.  Wheelchairs are available for rental at Visitor Information Counters for $2/day

    While the paths are smooth, everything is far apart and may be difficult for some with mobility challenges.  While it doesn’t cover the entire park, a wheelchair accessible shuttle service operates between Bayfront MRT and the Conservatories.

    The Flower Dome and Cloud Forest Conservatories

    Both conservatories are fully accessible.  One small area in the Flower Dome requires staff to operate a stair climber, but the area is small and optional.  The Cloud Forest’s paths are all accessible but wheelchair users must return and use the central elevators a few times – making it easy to miss a floor if you aren’t careful.

    Supertree Grove

    The elevated pathway between two of the “trees” in Supertree Grove is accessible as there are elevators at both the start and end of the path.  The central part of the path gets a bit narrow and many people stop to take pictures, making it a bit hard to pass in a wheelchair or other mobility aide.
