Hong Lim Park, Singapore

Hong Lim Park - Singapore, Singapore
Hong Lim Park
Eu Tong Sen Street, Singapore, Singapore 050531Map
Neighborhood: Chinatown
Overview

This small park between Chinatown and the CBD was established in 1885 by a Chinese businessman for whom it has since been named.  Like Singapore’s other urban green spaces, its tropical trees and foliage are immaculately groomed and there’s a fountain and park benches for relaxing in the shade.  Hong Lim Park is best known as the home of Speakers’ Corner, the one place in Singapore where people can “freely” arrange demonstrations or protests. Keep your eyes open for an ironic sign listing the numerous conditions of free speech. -Tanya Procyshyn
