HEALTH TIP: EX­ER­CISE IN THE PARK

Sin­ga­pore­ans boost their health by tak­ing time to ex­er­cise in green spaces and parks. Last year, the Na­tional Parks Board opened ther­a­peu­tic gar­dens which the gov­ern­ment says will “pro­vide respite and im­prove the men­tal well­be­ing of vis­i­tors”. “Sin­ga­pore­ans know in­stinc­tively that green spaces pro­mote phys­i­cal and men­tal well­be­ing,” said Min­is­ter for Na­tional Devel­op­ment, Khaw Boon Wan. “Who does not want to live in or near a gar­den? That is why we set out to en­sure 80 per cent of homes in Sin­ga­pore are within a 10-minute walk from a park and aim to raise this to 90 per cent by 2030.”
