Lovely shady walk on a hot day and very relaxing with certain spots affording lovely views. The afternoon I chose to visit was very quite which was lovely but it was a shame about all the building and repair work going on. It is still...More

Hot and humid Singapore! So come here in the late evening and try to catch the sunset at Raffles Terrace. Interesting view of the Singapore River as well as Marina Bay Sands! Lots of wild birds and animals too. Was hoping to see a Hornbill...More

We made some good memories that's true but it is not very stroller friendly. We had a nice picnic and took nice pictures but since our toddlers could not climb so many stairs up the fort, we left early and went to some other place.

My husband is quite the avid War Buff and he & our daughter found this place fascinating! They operate Tours pretty much daily - The Battlebox Tour (hour and 15mins) was well worth the visit.

Better to be armed with the facts rather than a guess. Drinking alcohol in public places, which includes parks, is only banned after 10:30pm so unless you are having a very late picnic, there is no issue. If you do a search... More
