“Playground with a view”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Not much to see if there's no match or some other occasion. Then it's just a grassy field with a view to that spectacular building with a "boat" on the top (Marina Bay Sands).

“Great Sporting Green Space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

For the sporting fanatic's a large green space with turf cricket wickets, grass tennis courts, soccer field and lawn bowls sandwiched between two exclusive clubs and surrounded by high rise views. Something old in something new.

“Much nicer last time”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Sad to say, the Padang in the 1900s were much nicer than the Padang now... It is only like a normal park in the middle of the city, which only comes alive when F1 or National Day begins. Sad to say that KL or other places Padang eg.Central Park in NYC are much better than this now.

“nice central open space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

This area was directly outside our hotel and convenient to fly newly bought remote control helicopters! My son thought was fantastic to have this area so convenient but still great views of all the surrounding buildings.
