The reservoir is a significant landmark in national progress and an important source of valuable water. If you mess around in the area, you'll find out first-hand that the fort still has operational weapons....

Low and behold the Fort Gate! *drums roll...* This structure has been well maintain and preserved in its historical form. There are two roles of heavy rusty iron door gates which may be actually used to prevent enemies from entering in the past.

the stage for "Twelfth Night" Shakespeare in the Park, Fort Canning Park in 2012. i enjoyed it very much.   i hope those who came for the walk with me this morning enjoyed it as well..and maybe return to explore this park further on your own.  but what makes a park attractive and unattractive for some? some will return some will not.  should events like this be held more frequently to attract more visitors? or what kind of events/activities should be held?  come..your thoughts please..

A day at the Fort, come venture once more. You may find ports but there ain't no boars.

This picture illustrate the beauty of tree tunneling... Could you spot the lighthouse? It is located nearby the Flagstaff and the Time Ball at Fort Canning park. This is a replica of the lighthouse which has contributed to the  Singapore harbour which was previously built at the south side of Fort Canning Hill.

one of the most historical sites in SG, this hill had many names. It wasn't called Fort Canning Park until much later in the 1980s. The native inhabitants referred to it as Bukit Larangan - which means somewhat like a Forbidden Hill, a place where the locals believed the spirits of their ancestral kings remain. When the British came and a residence for Raffles was built, and governors stayed in it, it was called Government Hill.
