  • Found by accident when we walking along from Plaza Singapura. The park are in the city center. Very clean, near by have a nice bar we have a coffee there and see the beautiful garden. 
  • Park is right on the road and yet so calm and refreshing.. Enjoyed just lazying around and relaxing after a grinding day.. 
  • In the large park in the Presidential Office Orchard Street, and is managed, maintained, and tropical plants to bloom can walk leisurely.

  • A good park with swan lake and other official buildings
  • A relatively smaller park compared to nearby Fort Canning park but there is a cafe nearby that has really nice views of this park.
  • A small little park with water. Tranquil contrast against Orchard road. Nicer by night.
  • The workplace of the president of Singapore. Istana is open for the public on certain dates
  • Small, but beautiful - especially at night.
