The Istana Park is a park in Singapore, located in the Museum Planning Area within the Central Area, Singapore's central business district. The park is bounded by Orchard Road, Penang Road, Penang Lane and Buyong Road.The park is a landmark situated in front of the Presidential Residence, the Istana. It has an area of 13,000 square metres. The Istana Park serves as a gateway to Singapore's Civic District Trail, which aims to educate visitors of the rich history of Singapore.HistoryThe Istana Park was completed in 1995. It was designed and built as an extension to the main entrance of the Istana. The Istana, located across the road, Orchard Road, from the park, is the official residence of the President of Singapore.HighlightsThe centrepiece of the park is the 26 metre high Festival Arch rising out of a shallow reflecting pool. The design of the stainless steel and concrete structure was inspired by the gateposts and railings at the Istana's entrance. The Festival Arch forms the gateway to Singapore's Civic District, the cultural and historic heart of the city. The arch enhances the visual link across Orchard Road.

  • 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 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.
  • Passed by this place when I walk to plaza sing.
