“Must visit when there are ongoing events”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2012

Just ordinary on normal days but transformed when there are carnivals like Shape Run, Standard Chartered Marathon, etc. And of course, whenever there are National Day rehearsals or New Year's Eve countdown parties.

“Sporting venue and more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

Watched a rugby match on the Padang on a weekend recently. Then walked through it around 7.45pm to get to the Esplanade to watch the Wonderfull Laser and Light show over the harbour. The Padang was full of people sitting in groups, having picnics, talking and playing music.

Try and read up about the history of this patch of ground and you will discover its more than a green playing field bounded by the Cricket Club and Recreation Club. Very significant in WW2.
