Mental Well-Being

We will actively incorporate greenery and recreational facilities in our estates to promote positive mental well-being, and stimulate the mind.

Pocket Gardens for Rest and Relaxation

Greenery is an integral part of the HDB living environment, as research has shown that exposure to greenery can improve one’s mental well-being. We will enhance the design and accessibility to green spaces so residents can enjoy greenery at their doorstep.

We will also make the pocket gardens with seats and landscaping within our estates more attractive so that residents can unwind in a relaxing environment.

Spaces for Rest and Relaxation in BTOs

In some estates, residents can enjoy living close to nature. For example, at Costa Grove in Pasir Ris, residents can have a charming and tranquil experience when strolling along the boardwalk that leads to Sungei Api Api, or take a breather at the bird-watching zen pods.

More Opportunities for Hobby-Farming and Gardening

Residents can look forward to more opportunities to interact with nature through horticultural activities, like hobby-farming and gardening. Besides benefitting one’s mental well-being, it also allows residents to foster deep communal bonds.

Learning Opportunities for All

We will weave in educational features in our estates for residents to learn more about their surrounding environment, as learning is mentally stimulating and boosts well-being. For example, by including interesting facts about the plants around the estate.
