Singapore Parks

Updated on October 13, 2011

Singapore Parks

Singapore Parks may form part of a tour itinerary, but you get to see only the more popular ones like Botanic Gardens, Mount Faber or Fort Canning Park. If you are visiting Singapore, don't just visit the well promoted places of interest, there are many places to explore too and have a relaxing visit. Spending time to catch up with your host or friends in a quiet and relaxing setting.

Singapore may be a small country, a little red dot in Asia. Amidst the hustle and bustle of city-state life, there are places where one can rest, relax, enjoy nature, take a stroll with loved ones, have a picnic, or enjoy the sun, sea and sand.

Priority List - Visiting Singapore Parks

You see... when you visit Singapore, there is limited time you will spend here. If you are really interested to spend some time among scenic and natural places, I would suggest the following which your tour agent will unlikely recommend you.

  1. Kranji War Memorial Park - A huge memorial park to remember the war heroes during the Japanese Occupation. Crosses all laid in nice rows with a well kept lawn to honour and remember their sacrifice for the country.
  2. Marina Barrage - A great and scenic view of the Singapore skyline. Great place to bring a picnic bag towards evening and sit to relax, to have a coffee and some snacks before going for a dinner later.
  3. Istana Park - If you happen to be in Singapore during one of our festive holidays like Deepavali, Hari Raya Puasa, Christmas or Chinese New Year, the Istana is open to the public. This is the home to the President of Singapore. The President and his First Lady will be out to greet and meet visitors at the Park.
  4. Sungei Buloh Wetlands - If you are wondering what the wetlands of a tropical country looks like, this is the right place to watch the creatures and migratory birds that live in the wetlands. This is a sanctuary for birds and some wildlife.
  5. Changi Beach and East Coast Park - Two different places, but this where you will be able to get sand in your feet, and enjoy the breeze. Some may just get into the waters for a dip. Toilets and bathing facilities are available at these parks. Just make sure you bring your towels and a change of clothes just in case you are tempted to get yourself wet.
