Fort Canning Park is one of the most historical places in Singapore. The hill served as the seat of power in the 14th and 19th Century. Once known as ‘Bukit Larangan’, or Forbidden Hill, it is thought that a palace once stood on the hill. Throughout the years, the hill served various functions as Government Hill and Fort Canning in the 19th Century, and was established as a recreational park in the 20th Century, where the National Theatre, Van Kleef Aquarium and the River Valley Swimming Complex was located.
The enhancement plans to Fort Canning Park and its surroundings will restore the rich history of the hill, create more spaces for arts and recreation options, cater for a wider range of programmes to suit varied interests and enhance accessibility to the park.
