Hong Lim Park - Singapore's first public garden

Hong Lim Park is a historic Singapore site, named after the wealthy businessman Cheang Hong Lim, who donated the land to create the park. Opened in 1885, Hong Lim Park is Singapore’s first public garden and was the backdrop to several important political rallies and election speeches throughout the 1950s and 1960s. Today, the park is a leafy oasis in the heart of Chinatown and home to Speaker’s Corner, a designated area where residents of Singapore can gather to demonstrate, hold exhibitions and give performances.
