3km Hilltop park route that has rich ancient heritage and history 

Fort Canning Park, an iconic hilltop landmark has witnessed many of Singapore’s historical milestones. The hill once sited the palaces of 14th century Malay Kings and served as the Headquarters of the Far East Command Centre and British Army Barracks.

Its ancient artifacts are a must-see for history buffs, and its lush greenery and expansive lawns offer a variety of arts, heritage and nature experiences. Whether you are drawn by the park’s rich heritage, or simply its tranquility, this hilltop park offers something for the whole family (Source: National Parks Board).

Due to its convenient location, it has become a popular running destination, for working professionals of the CBD, residents and visitors alike. Its slopes and stairs offer great training opportunities for those who seek strength-building routines.

Wheelchair accessible (Steep slope at the entrance from Clemenceau Avenue/River Valley Road).
