Nature Abounds at Fort Canning Park
A week ago I was at the Fort Canning Park enjoying a leisurely nature walk in the Park. I saw some visitors with a brochure but the walks can be done on your own – plenty of signboards for guidance.
I stopped at Dhoby Ghaut MRT station, turned to Park Mall Shopping Mall, crossed the road and there it was – Fort Canning Park.
I took the tunnel route and upon climbing up the stairs a circular point of view greeted the eyes. Various trails lead to many directions – so pick and choose. Along the way, lots of seats to take a breather. The park seems to be a favourite place for wedding photos. Vending machines are scattered at various shelters – remember to bring along coins. Tin cans cost from S$1.00 plus. Do bring along plenty of water because hot days are here.
There are signboards with explanation on the flora and fauna. For the history buff, there is even a black cannon among the greenery. Why not join the Battle Box tour? Here is a great place to slow down, appreciate nature, history and culture in Singapore.
I started from one end and exited by another way. Walked down the stairs and came upon the MICA building. Colorful windows and doors architecture. Plenty of photography opportunities.
Alight at Bras Basah, City Hall, Clarke Quay or Dhoby Ghaut. Walking time about 8-10mins from each station.
Other options includes driving or buses. There are too many bus numbers to list down. For more information, go to the website.
