Canning Rise is one of Singapore's historical landmarks. The park was originally known as Bukit Larangan, or 'Forbidden Hill' in Malay.

Today, the 18-hectare space is chock full of attractions – from ancient artefacts for history buffs to outdoor lawns for concerts, and of course, greenery for nature lovers.


Some highlights include the Maritime Corner @ Fort Canning which tells the story of Singapore's evolution from an entrepot trading post to an international maritime centre, and the Fort Gate, a remnant of a fortress built that was built here in the 19th Century
