With more than 700 years of history, Fort Canning Park is one of Singapore’s most important historical fortresses. The historical sites, lush greenery and trails at the park attract both history buff and nature lovers. In this Heritage Visit, participants had a rare opportunity to visit a former WWII British underground command centre inside Fort Canning Hill – the Battlebox, Spice Garden, Fort Canning Center and archaeological sites. Let us recap that enriching morning with the photos highlights!

An additional perk in this visit was that participants were able to tour Battle Box, a former WWII British underground command centre inside Fort Canning Hill for free. (Usual price at $18). Participants also learnt about the significant moments that happened during the WWIII period and had a chance to view those exhibits in close proximity.
