Fort Canning Park

Established way back in 1859 as an arms store, barracks and hospital, Fort Canning contains precious memorials of Singapore’s early history dating back to the 14th century and Sir Stamford Raffles’ personal bungalow. Look out also for the Spice Garden, a small replica of the original 19-hectare tract Raffles established in 1822 as the first experimental and botanical garden in Singapore.

Now a park overlooking Orchard Road, Fort Canning is a popular venue for the arts, including sculpture exhibitions, plays and open-air ballet.
