DESIGN GUIDELINES FOR THERAPEUTIC GARDENS IN SINGAPORENParks’ Publication The Therapeutic Garden @ HortPark is the prototype for the network of therapeutic gardens in Singapore. Developed based on best practices and evidence-based design principles relating to therapy for improving mental well-being, it provides respite for visitors of all ages and incorporates design elements and user-friendly features to meet the needs of the elderly, including those with conditions such as dementia.
