Fort Canning Park Tours

Fort Canning Park
Located in Singapore’s super-sleek business district, Fort Canning Park is a hilltop oasis that encompasses nine smaller historic parks. In addition to a fragrant spice garden, an art gallery, and some grandiose Gothic gates, Fort Canning Park is also home to a World War II bunker and command center. 

The Basics 
Fort Canning Park is full of well-marked trails that make it easy to explore. Highlights include the archeological site at Artisan’s Garden; the remnants of Singapore’s first botanical garden; the Raffles Garden, which showcases exotic Southeast Asian flowers; and the Sang Nila Utama Garden, which provides a space to meditate and take some time to have a mindful nature experience.

Things to Know Before You Go 
  • Fort Canning Park dates back to the 14th-century and is home to multiple historically significant sites; excavation work on some of these sites is ongoing, and parts of the park are sometimes inaccessible. 
  • You can experience an augmented reality version of the park with the BALIKSG app, which takes you on an interactive journey through Fort Canning’s history. 
  • The green space is wheelchair accessible, thanks to walkways and paved paths.
  • There are several restaurants, a fitness area, and public restrooms inside the park.

How to Get There
The easiest way to reach Fort Canning Park is by public transportation: take the MRT to the Fort Canning or Bras Basah stations.

When to Get There
Fort Canning Park is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is illuminated at night. Due to its hilltop location, the park is a prime place to watch the sun set over Singapore’s skyline. 

Parks in Singapore 
Though the city-state is known primarily as a bustling metropolis, Singapore boasts lots of green space. The most popular parks include East Coast Park, which covers hundreds of acres of reclaimed waterfront land, and MacRitchie Reservoir Park, which surrounds Singapore’s largest reservoir and features a suspension bridge that allows you to hike over the forest.

Built in the late 1930s, The Battlebox is a former WWII British underground command centre inside Fort Canning Hill at the heart of Singapore City. The British army defended Malaya and Singapore from this legendary hideout in World War II.

Today, the Battlebox is a museum that unveils the true causes behind “the worst disaster and largest capitulation in British history”. This tour tells two stories – the fall of Malaya and Singapore in WWII, and how an underground command centre functioned during World War II. Hear both from your professional English speaking guide as he/she leads you through the place that made history during the war.
