Jubilee Park is a rare playground in the heart of town within Fort Canning Park and it is so easily accessible by public transportation. It is next to the Fort Canning MRT station exit B. There is also a carpark next to it. There are a varieties of slides, swings, see-saws etc. Children can also have fun using their hands playing at the sandpit. The playground is also beautified by lots of flowering plants and trees. Presently their Christmas decorations cannot fail to put a smile on our faces with the wooden Christmas tree, wooden snowmen and lots of wooden reindeers among the red brightly coloured poinsettia plants. Bauhinia blakeana is the national flower of Hong Kong. Bauhinia blakeana itself is the scientific name and this purple beauty is commonly known as Hong Kong Orchid Tree. There is an orchid tree at the playground it blossoms presently with flashy masses of large, sweetly scented, 5-inch-wide purple, pink blooms which delicately resemble the orchid. Since 1997 the Bauhinia flower appears on Hong Kong’s coat of arms, its flag and its coins. Its leaves are butterfly-shaped and it consists of two broad leaflets. In Hong Kong, the leaf is known as the “clever leaf”, and is regarded as a symbol of wisdom. Some people use the leaves to make bookmarks in the hope that they will bring them good luck in their studies. There is a large art piece here depicting the iconic National Theatre which had been demolished and it used to occupy the site of this playground. Beside the playground, the children can also take a walk with a view among the numerous shady trails available at Fort Canning Park.

The children’s play area with a variety of slides, sand play areas, seesaws, swinging seats and viewing platform covered in vines and flower is a great spot to take the young ones. The weekends are very busy but sitting on the grassy slope in the shade watching them have fun is good. The rest of Fort Canning Park is a lovely area to walk around. Be aware of some steep hills and stairs, but the recently installed escalators help in some areas. Very relaxing and peaceful in places.

I walked through this park enroute to battlebox. Please note be carefu which side you enter the park as you might be climbing a lot of steps if you approach from the wrong end. If you are fit, you won’t need to worry.

This is a great place for a walk in the park with your loved one. Lots of big trees, old stone Fort walls and cannons, with nice landscaped hilled parkland. We stayed at the hotel here and after a few whiskeys had a great drunken stroll around this beautiful spot at night.
