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.

The park has so much to explore, it has a fort, a hotel, luang lawns, play area for kids, workout spaces, so many different types of plants and trees and even a bakery

Weather was cooperative for a nice afternoon walk. The walkways were all well maintained and marked. Good descriptive signage for the points of interest. Plenty of drinking fountains (also vending machines for drinks) and restrooms. Reasonable area for an hour walk. Would go back again.
Looks great. Smells great. Feels great. Beautiful if small green space overlooking Clarke Quay. The place is gorgeous, very quiet in the evenings full of delightful spaces, carvings and water features that bring to mind Bali and Java. . . and the occasional civet cat if you're really lucky. Loads of history going back 200 and 300 years too

Message from Singapore Tourism Board
Situated in the central area of Singapore, Fort Canning Park is a landmark that showcases flora and fauna, as well as historical artefacts. Set on a hilltop, Fort Canning Park is a respite from the surrounding urban landscape. The iconic 18ha park is steeped in history: Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of modern Singapore, built a bungalow on Fort Canning Hill, and it became the home of subsequent colonial governors. Fort Canning Hill was a major communication centre, and key historic events took place here. Fort Gate, the remnant of a 19th-century fortress, can also be found in the park.
