Mount Emily Park is a great little green oasis of calm smack in the middle of the city landscape. Its elevated position means it seems to always benefit from a breeze, no matter how stifling it is down on Orchard just a few hundred yards away.

It overlooks the cityscape and the Istana and is an ideal place to catch your breath and enjoy the fresh air and views. For kids there is an excellent playground complete with sandpit.
