    VIDEO: Commemorating 50 Years of Greening Singapore in 2013

    2013 marks 50 years of greening for Singapore. Our greening movement started with the planting of a Mempat tree in 1963 by then Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew. The City in a Garden that we enjoy today, with its vibrant parks, lush tree-lined roads, and thriving biodiversity is the result of the dedication and commitment of many people to enhance the quality of our living spaces. To commemorate this significant milestone, NParks worked with more than 100 partners on a series of activities, events, and programmes, to raise awareness of Singapore's greening efforts, and to engage the public in sustaining our City in a Garden for the next 50 years.
