Fort Canning Park, Singapore

4.3
#16 of 70 in Parks in Singapore
Experience Fort Canning Park, one of Singapore's most popular landmarks and green spaces. Excavations of this park have revealed that it may have been the center of trade as far back as the 1400s. Malay kings ruled from the top of this hill, and it remained a centerpiece of the island during its 19th-century transformation into a major trade hub, plus it was a military base during World War II. Today visitors can view old relics of the island's past, set up a picnic, or attend a concert or special event.

  • A quiet and shady park on the fort canning hill right in the middle of the city. Some part of the park gives a good view of the city and surrounding. There are a lot this park offer buy sadly the locals rather go to the malls then enjoying such a gem.
  • A well preserved command post of world war vintage is the centre point. A well maintained garden adds to the charm. Quite a nice park to go for a casual stroll & take some time to chill out from the city. The walk around is very interesting, as it takes one through the history of Singapore. As I left this place I realised one visit is not adequate!
  • This is a beautiful park. You can't access the resoviour on top, it's closed to the public. Walking around the park is lovely, it's well kept and green. My wife and I spent a few hours here, enjoying the warm breeze on a hot day. The north side of the park was more sheltered from the city noise.
  • Awesome place for a break. Very quiet, clean, and peaceful. Don't forget to bring your mosquito repellent spray though to ward off these things.
  • In the heart of the city is this beautiful and well-maintained park. While it’s true that most of Singapore feels like a park, with carefully manicured trees and gardens everywhere, officially designated parks such as this have not lost their novelty and are still worth a visit. For one, this park sits at a higher elevation, offering scenic views of downtown Singapore. And then there are the attractions, including a historic lighthouse and archaeological digs attesting to the rich culture of the island. The environment also invites contemplation and pause, perfect for those who wish to recharge and escape the hustle of city life.

Where to stay in Singapore

At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture.
