Esplanade Park, Singapore

4.4
#21 of 95 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.

  • This is in front of Esplanade mall, right next to waterfront. It's a pleasant walk in the evening. It offers the same great views of Marina Bay as waterfront.  more »
  • It is close to the Marina City Park. Kinds of stadium and monument in the Park, was a place of recreation and relaxation for citizens. When it comes to tourists, is becoming tour meeting place.

  • I didn't discover anything interesting in this park. You can have a picnic or spend some leisure time here in a piece of grassland, but I'm sure there are many other better locations. The "Glorious Dead" monument seems to be a bit too small. Though it has places for you to sit around and take some walk, it's hard to enjoy yourself here without beautiful scenery or special attractions. Few people do music performance here at the time of my visit. I just walked past it without feeling to want to stay there.
  • An amazing location for, if I am correct, daily plays by various actors/bands. There are plenty of bars you could attend, such as Harry's, for a drink, or just for food. It's even a lovely experience to just walk by at night to see how many people gather around Esplanade.
  • Great experience walking around the park and the marina! Easy photography of the iconic Marina Bay Sands, Merlion and Singapore Flyer.
  • Have a good time there
  • A hidden find - perfect for a 5yo. We discovered this by accident, but ended up spending half the day here. My daughter just loved the playground - especially the bells.
