Created in 1885, Hong Lim Park was Singapore’s first public garden and comprises around 2.3 acres of greenery. This is a popular venue for a diverse range of community events, serving as an important recreational hub in the Chinatown area. Located an easy stroll from the sights and attractions of Marina Bay and just a few minutes from Singapore’s Downtown Core, Hong Lim Park is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

It may be an ideal place to relax, but Hong Lim Park serves another important purpose. As the backdrop to numerous memorable political speeches in the 50s and 60s, Hong Lim Park has played a part in many of Singapore’s famous historical moments.

Staying in a hotel near Hong Lim Park – like PARKROYAL on Pickering right across the road – provides the perfect opportunity to get away from it all and see history in action.
