Top ways to experience Esplanade Park
The area
Neighbourhood: Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.

This is a small city park close to Marina Bay with a few interesting statues to admire. I've been cycling through here regularly during the lockdown on my way towards East Coast Park.

We walked around this place. It was in the day time and so it was bit hot. But still the view was good and it was worth taking.

Foremost is the architecture of the surrounding area that captures the interest; Everywhere - wherever you point the camera - you see new angles and motifs worthy of 'perishing' for each self-written own travel photo album. But there are also a lot of fun details in the park, from nicely designed park lights, to small waterfalls and ingeniously planted trees ... The proximity to the open water surfaces also contributes to a sense of harmony. Returned to this place several times (also lived nearby).

Esplanade Park is located along Connaught Drive, opposite Padang and City Hall. The park size is 2.4 hectares. It is bounded by Connaught Drive, Stamford Road, Esplanade Drive and the mouth of the Singapore River. Lot of interesting monument or things around the park for example, inside there is the Lim Bo Seng Memorial and a beautiful Victorian blue and white Tan Kim Seng Fountain, built in 1882 to commemorate the contributions to Singapore of the famous Chinese philanthropist.
Nice place to walk and take some pictures

Take a relaxing walk at Esplanade Park on a lovely evening. Be inspired by the grandeur of this iconic architecture at night.

Sunday 20th October and we were walking along the Esplanade where this park is located.

The Park wasbuilt in 1943 and is considered to be one of the oldest in Singapore.

There are many historical and cultural landmarks in the Esplanade Park
including Queen Elizabeth Walk, the former Indian National Army Monument site, The Cenotaph, Tan Kim Seng Fountain ,and the Lim Bo Seng Memorial, Rising Moon sculpture

Rather liked the turtle sculpture/carvings

Nextdoor is the Esplanade Theatres by the Bay and the Makan Angin Sculpture

The Esplanade Park is enclosed by Connaught Drive, Stamford Road, Esplanade Drive and Singapore River.

This is a wonderful place for a walk at night. Later is better since you will find less people and more peaceful.

This is a nice sized park not far from the river and Marina Bay area. The light show can be seen here at night and if you bring a blanket to sit on you can have a picnic which is what we did.

This is a lovely park in the middle of the city and the MBS complex. We spent about an hour here including sitting on the grass, generally taking it easy and having ice cream.
