Esplanade Park, Singapore

(4.5/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Singapore vacation route planner to visit Esplanade Park on your trip to Singapore, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • The contrast of electric lights from the city buildings and the laser show seem all that much brighter against the back drop of a pitch black sky. 
  • This is a perfect walk to experience many of the Singapore Icons, and allows one to view the light show in the evening too! Being CNY it was very popular with families and tourists alike, but most enj...  more »
  • 雖然新加坡本身不大,但每個遊客多少都會來這里,原因就在這里真的很美,特別是傍晚時分到這里散步再步行到魚尾獅,估計很多人來新加坡的印象大慨都是如此. 這里盡收新加坡的美它是真實的情景,我覺得這里也最棒的一個地方,那就是它能親身感受到身處新加坡,其實對我而言,雖然天氣炎熱但晚上卻很美,在這里享受新加坡的夜晚,是我覺得每次來獅城最捨不得的地方,雖然它不見得是什麼百萬夜景,但有時最單純最有感覺的美,比什麼...  more »

  • Walking from Padang along the Esplanade and emerging from under the bridge overpass, getting your first view of the stunning harbor view is very breathtaking. The view of the Harbor, Merlion, and skyline from here, and further up, the Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay is fantastic. Bring a good camera. The breeze from the water also makes this a comfortable walk option on a hot day.
  • A lot of activities / celebrations take place here. Overseeing the bay. Lots of greenery and statues. Asia civilization museum nearby
  • Cosy place. Nice dating place
  • Beautiful and clean park
  • A very nice recreational park
