Visitor Info

Aptly themed 'Recapturing the Past Splendour', Telok Blangah Hill Park has a history that few other parks can boast about. This park has long been a place of gathering for trading communities which flourished at the site since the early nineteenth century. The prosperity of the traders is symbolised by the Alkaff Mansion - an elegant colonial bungalow built by an Arab trader and is previously a place for grand parties of the social elite.

A popular spot for wedding couples, the Terrace Garden is the main feature of this park. It consists of a series of semi-circular terraces situated at the top of the park. From here, you will be able to enjoy a breath-taking 360-degree view of Singapore. 

Come in the morning or evening, and join the residents of the nearby neighbourhoods for their exercises such as taiqi and jogging. If you are looking for an outdoor picnic, the park is well equipped with picnic tables and shaded by magnificent tall trees such as Eugenia, Alstonia and Rain trees. You can sit back and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and watch the birds, squirrels and butterflies in their natural surroundings.
