Esplanade Park, Singapore

4.5
#21 of 101 in Parks in Singapore
Get at the heart of the city with a visit to Esplanade Park, one of the country's oldest public parks. Originally built in 1943, the park has since seen the addition of many important landmarks, including a trail dedicated to Queen Elizabeth, an army monument, cenotaph, fountain, and memorial. The promenade follows the bay of the marina and provides a vantage point of the waterfront and city skyline. You'll often find a refreshing breeze flow in from the water and shade under the tree canopies from the sun. Small local vendors set up kiosks selling drinks and snacks, and the odd local performer plays soft background music. Make your Singapore itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • Esplanade Park is located on Marina Bay at the Waterfront Promenade, the Esplanade Theater in the form of a huge durian with shopping mall, and near the water-breathing Merlion (the landmark of Singapore), as well as other historical and interesting Attractions (war memorials) and buildings (old seat of government, sports field), all within walking distance. Esplanade Park contains 44 rain trees, 22 of which are protected as national monuments. This was introduced from South America in 1876 and thrived well in Singapore's tropical climate. Two very interesting trees that you can choose the Leopard Tree (from East Brazil) and the Cannon Ball Tree (from the northern parts of South America) with great blossoms. Esplanade Park is well served by public transport, especially by metro. On sunny days, despite good visitor numbers, he is relaxing and gives some shade.

  • Beautiful art installation of lights, sound and synchronization... as part of iLight Singapore 2019... the Esplanade Park is always a great place to bring your date or loved one... kids can also play at the new playground with actual sand, instead of those rubberized shock absorbers. It is a much brighter park... with trees lit up with lights and walkways are wide and spacious.
  • Great venue to spend a day out walking around all the tourists spots in the area. River taxi rides, integrated resort with casino, theatre, shopping, food and Gardens by the Bay.
  • Esplanade park memorial. Love by old school skateboarders. Able to enjoy quite moment. Lots of tourist taking pictures.
  • One of the world's best and highly exemplary urban planning application!
  • Can enjoy walking. I went to event selling plants. Park in the center of the city.
