Nice park on a small hill. Close to Orchard Road. Nice destination if you want some green spaces. Lots of history here, including old British military HQ buried inside the hill. Takes about 45 min to walk around and see the main sights.

This is a must see whilst in Singapore. To view the tunnels is by tour guide only and when inside, you can fully appreciate why. The grounds are pristine.

Fort Canning Park is a very pleasant park in the middle of Singapore. A hill itself is a park, and you can take a walk without being disturbed by car. It is not hard to climb, and I am sure it is worth.

Quite unlike the nature reserve protected for its flora and fauna or an area of important geological or special interests with its unique ecosystems, parks are “designed” with humans in mind for various purposes largely recreational – jogging, walking and cycling, or social gatherings like...More

It's a beautiful garden and a nice place to have a walk or jog. You'll feel amazing walking here. You get free entry in the garden. If you're in Singapore, I think it's a place to visit. The place is well connected by a metro...More

I was recommended this place from a Singaporean friend. This garden is a gorgeous place to stroll through, whilst taking in the historic surrounds. Located within walking distance from multiple MRT stations, the signage makes it very easy to navigate. I walked in from the...More
