Owner description: Fort Canning Park is one of Singapore's most historic landmarks. It has witnessed Singapore's golden age, when Malay Kings ruled from its peak, and watched as the island transformed from a sleepy fishing village into a vibrant trading hub in the 19th century. During World War II, the hill was instrumental in Singapore's war efforts with numerous military buildings located there. One of these buildings was the Fort Canning Bunker or Battle Box, where the decision to surrender Singapore to the Japanese was made by the British. Many war relics from Singapore's colourful history have survived on the hill and are still visible today.Although the hill has since lost its imposing stature, its distinctive charm still remains. The lush lawns draw picnics, concerts, theatre productions and festivals, while weddings, parties and gatherings are a regular sight in the park's elegant indoor function rooms. Visit the park today and experience the tranquillity once enjoyed by the Malay royals of yore.

Take a run here to forget about the city. Close by you can also see the fire house also. Great place!

On a hot day it was nice to sit in the park and relax for a bit. It is green and well manicured, which makes the walking trails throughout the park a nice experience with a young child.

If you are tired of the fast pace of Singapore and all of the concrete, steel and glass, make your way to Ft. Canning Park where they have beautiful walking trails complete with historical markers. It is much cooler in the shade of the many trees along the path, and you will see many people enjoying the park with picnics. Don't miss the Battle Box, which gives you a tour of the British command station during World War II.

Fort Canning Park is a lovely relaxing place in Singapore. Full of history you can enjoy the place just walking the trails or taking part in activities such as the Battlebox tour. Lovely and green and well manicured gardens make this a place worth seeing

Central location near Fort Canning MRT. Lovely green area with various walking tracks to explore. We did the Fort Canning Tour including the Battlebox. A great way to learn about the history of this interesting site.
