SINGAPORE - The National Parks Board will be celebrating Singapore's golden jubilee with music and flora.

A series of free concerts, showcasing local singers, will be held at green spaces around the country including Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, Gardens by the Bay and Bedok Reservoir Park. Some 50 community garden groups will also create showcases at HortPark near Alexandra.

More plants and lighting will also be added to the highways, sprucing up the nation's spine, making them more distinctive and beautiful for Singapore's 50th birthday.

Minister of State (National Development) Desmond Lee at the launch of Jurong Spring Nature Way on Sunday said that the aim of the festivities was to bring everyone together and celebrate and create memories in our parks and gardens.
