Hong Lim Park

Speakers’ Corner in Singapore

Hong Lim Park – also known as Speakers’ Corner – is one of the central most parks in Singapore, and is best known for its designated space where Singaporeans can freely demonstrate, protest and hold exhibitions. Similar activities are prohibited across the country, meaning this spec of green has become a famous spot for political activists.

Although dubbed as a place for freedom of speech, such gatherings are controlled by the government, with demonstrations having to be registered online 30 days prior to the event, and held between the hours of 07:00-19:00.

In reality, if you take a stroll past Speakers’ Corner on most days it will probably look like any other park. Local workers use it as a spot to take lunch (usually under the shade of one of the trees) while it also provides a popular evening hangout for teenagers. Other popular activities and sports here include kite-flying, football, and badminton (but no courts available).

Gatherings here aren’t always political in nature; Hong Lim Park is used for a variety of other events too such as National Day celebrations, which sees the green space packed full of locals and tourists. Stalls set up, as well as a central stage with live music performances throughout the day.

Find Hong Lim Park on North Canal Road – a short walk from Clarke Quay or Chinatown MRT station. The park is open all day, every day. Speakers’ Corner is a designated area within the park (marked by a small wooden sign).
