Bottle Tree Park Yishun
Bottle Tree Park
This was established after the success of Bottle Tree Village in Sembawang. The owners idea was a concept village with sports, recreation facilities, conference rooms, eateries and enjoying nature. The company was named after the bottle tree from Australia. This and other exotic and rare trees were imported at a cost of $100,000.

At Bottle Tree Park, enthusiasts can rent a rod for $25 and fish for several hours for fish and prawns at the fishing ponds. The eateries include BBQ, seafood and halal restaurants and a pub.
