Istana Park fronts the main Istana Gate and provides a vantage point to view the monthly changing of guards ceremony at the Istana.
The centrepiece of the park is a 26m long Festival Arch rising from a rectangular reflecting pool with slow, flowing water. The design symbolises the gateposts and railings at the Istana Entrance. Standing at a height of four storeys, the arch is a landmark marking the gateway to the Civic District, flying banners and flags during National Day.
You can look forward to enjoying the floral display that is themed according to the celebratory events of the year, as well as the oasis of light as night falls.
