Esplanade Park

Esplanade Park

The Esplanade Park (Chinese: 海滨公园) is a historic park located in the Esplanade within the Downtown Core of the Central Area in Singapore's central business district.

Built in 1943, the Esplanade Park is one of the oldest in Singapore. The park was redeveloped in 1991. Many historical landmarks are located at the Esplanade Park, which include the Queen Elizabeth Walk, the former Indian National Army Monument site, The Cenotaph (completed in 1922), the Tan Kim Seng Fountain (moved here in 1925 from Fullerton Square), and the Lim Bo Seng Memorial (which was unveiled in 1954).

The Esplanade Park is bounded by Connaught Drive, Stamford Road, Esplanade Drive and the mouth of the Singapore River.

It also forms an important frontage for the Padang, Supreme Court and City Hall.

The only activity available is photography.
