Monthly walk: 11October – Fort Canning Park

Posted on behalf of Alice.

Date : Saturday, 11 October 2014
Time : 4.00 pm
Nearest MRT : Dhoby Ghaut station
Meeting Place: Park Mall, main entrance
Duration: 2 hrs
ECs : Alice Seah and Judy Lim

This month we will be walking in Fort Canning Park. Before November 1981
it was named Fort Canning Hill or “Forbidden Hill” in Malay. Since the
14th century many Singapore rulers and colonial masters have lived here,
including Sir Stamford Raffles. It was an important military base during
World War II.

Fort Canning Park is undulating and about 60 metres high. Remnants and
relics of bygone eras are around. There’s a Spice Garden, previously
Singapore’s first experimental and botanic garden. The tranquil ambience
together with diverse flora and fauna makes the walk interesting. You will
appreciate the beautiful sculptures completed by various artists.
Many cultural and recreational activities are held here.

Note: Bring water, caps, umbrella and wear comfortable walking shoes.

Our Walk Team ECs: Christina CL Chan, Charles Wee, Mary Tan, Veronica Wong,
Serene Low, Alice Seah, Jeffrey Lim, Azhari Cuttilan, June Koh, Judy Lim.

  2. First of all, my apologies to EO – Serene & those walkies who supported the Sept walk. Due to unforeseen commitment, I had to give it a miss in last month walk.

    Secondly, thanks to Alice Seah for her invitation to me to be her Co – EC in the walk at Fort Canning
    Park. This is a memorable place to me as it is my 1st performance at National Theatre during my school days.

    Lastly, my appreciation to Lilian Teo & her friend, Gabralla, Caroline & Andrew K who are participating in this interesting walk.

    Looking forward to more members and friends participating in this walk
