Since I moved in to Queenstown half a year ago, I would frequently take my morning walk from Alexandra Canal linear Park, along Alexandra Park Connector to Kim Seng Park. From Kim Seng Park, I would detour to the Buddhist Lodge at Kim Yam Road or walk straight along the promenade to Robertson Quay, Clarke Quay or Chinatown.

Kim Seng Park is just located beside the newly opened Great World MRT station (one of the stations along the Thomson East Coast Line) and the Great World City Mall. It runs parallel with the Singapore River and it is linked to the opposite bank of the river by the Robertson Bridge and the Jiak Kim Bridge. This is one of the few parks which is named after a prominent historic figure - Mr Tan Kim Seng, a trader and philanthropist.

There are many foreign expatriates residing around the nearby condominiums and they are well served by pubs and eateries including the Long Beach seafood restaurant along the Robertson promenade. Before the start of the park, right at the end of the Alexandra Park Connector is the popular Zion Road Hawker Centre and you can see long queue of patrons at the famous Char Kway Teow stall during lunch hours.

It is breezy walking along this park endowed with a scenic riverside view. The park is not big but there is a small little playground where you see some of the office workers happily sit and relax at the swing rocking to and fro after their lunch while sipping their cups of cold beverages in their hands. When night sets in, the whole stretch of the Robertson promenade turns bustling alive with band, rock music and songs and happy hours social interactions.

This park is unique in her own way.

One evening we were invited to dinner at the Grand Copthorne Hotel. From The Trillium apartment of The Hideaways Club it was under a 10 minutes walk. We trekked there and it was unbelievable that in the heart of Singapore this green lung was there and we did not know of it. It was a delightful experience.

A soft breeze made us feel so good that we chose to sit outdoors at the wonderful Japanese restaurant, Nanjya Monjya and take in the sound of water fountains with exquisite dishes served there.

Return to the Trillium was even better. We were the only pedestrians walking through the park.

Going to zouk you are bound to pass by this area. It's a area close by to great world city and Kim Seng road. There are a number of hotels and restaurants in the are (I like Nanjya manja).

Kim Seng Park is situated next to Kim Seng Bridge along Kim Seng Road. This park serves as the start of a walk along Singapore River. There are benches and exercise area in the park. This park is also suitable for children.
It is named after the famous merchant and philanthropist, Tan Kim Seng, who lived nearby in a house called Panglima Prang which had since been demolished. Nearby is another bridge, Jiak Kim Bridge, at the park which is named after his grandson.

Has a nice walk way and cycling path. If you are taking your children watch out for the cyclist. Easily accessible.

At the Great World City end of Robertson Quay

Famous Malay who moved to Singapore and added great value to the country

Based on the era and what he did maybe more appropriate the other end of the river in Boat Quay

Quiet and tranquil with little happening

We come here often with our daughter to go scooting along the river near Robertson Quay. The only really unfortunate aspect is that the path doesn't continue beyond Kim Seng Road. Hopefully once the latest round of construction is completed that aspect might be addressed so as to allow a continuous parth all the way along the Singapore river.
