Yes! The swan lake. You are looking at the lake as old as the Gardens. It was built in 1866, since than the charming beautiful memories start. There is an island in the lake planted with Nibung palms, these has to be the most remarkable and timeless iconic in Singapore Botanic Gardens.

The Banyan tree is old enough to be our great grand father, and also wise enough to play the old garden song.

“SWING ME MAMA” Sculpture

The beautiful art piece named “Swing Me Mama” is located next to the swan lake of the Singapore Botanic Gardens
It is made of serpentine spring stone.  The sculptor, Dominic Benhura from Zimbabwe created this beautiful piece of work through the inspiration of his kids while he was trying to swing them.

And now, both father and child are swinging and dancing together next to the Swan Lake, emitting and sharing the happiness they had together to visitors day in, day out.
