Fort Canning is where the Englishman Sir Stamford Raffles built his residence which was also used by other residents and governors. It became known as Government Hill until it was renamed Fort Canning in 1861 when a fort was built on the site.

Lots of construction. The park could use better access instruction from SMRT. I enjoyed a few hours wandering there and reading the historic contexts and seeing the older buildings
