4.2/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Once entered the park, the vibe suddenly changed. It suites for a quick escape from hectic urban life. It takes less than 5 mins walking from Dhoby Ghaut MRT stn or opposite Clarke Quay bus stop. Minu...  read more »
  • Fort Canning Park, as with many local attractions, is small and quaint and really worth visiting if: (a) you have a lot of time to spare, or (b) you are visiting the very informative National Museum o...  read more »
  • Well maintained park with interesting trees and historic sites - all well maintained with informative signboards. I particularly enjoyed the historic ones and the archaeological dig site 
  • A hidden green gem in the heart of the city. This place is gorgeous, uncrowded and offers something to the fitness buff or just someone looking for a walk in nature. There are some cultural spots along the paths to enjoy as well the restaurants in the main central building. Overall a very quite place and a nice place to getaway.
  • Pretty incredible. I preferred this park over botanical gardens because I felt that there are more historical artifacts in the park. The size is alot more manageable, only about 2km around the reservoir.
  • Find your calm in the middle of the bustling city! A park with history and beauty. If you want to head away from the happening Clarke Quay for a bit of breath and peace, head to its neighbor - Fort Canning Park. Not a popular spot for tourists, so its basically very less crowded at all times. Have a stroll to ease your mind, take in the beauty of the plantations and don't forget to breathe.
  • I love this place! It's perfect for a refreshing run at dawn or a romantic walk at dusk. This tiny hill has also witnessed most of Singapore's history from atop.
  • Quite the hike but full of history, nature and excellent views of Singapore from a central location. It's free to walk around, but bring an umbrella, shades, water, mosquito repellent and wear your walking shoes. There are also guided tours but they cost about SGD 18 per head.
