Atmospheric Parks To Enjoy Lantern Walks In Singapore During The Mid-Autumn Festival
Sharing is caring!

Lanterns are very much a part of the Mid-Autumn Festival. Kids enjoy the opportunity to head out after dusk on lantern walks in Singapore, exploring the moonlit night.

While almost any park makes a great location for an evening sojourn, we staked out a couple of atmospheric public parks where you can enjoy lantern walks in Singapore during the mid-autumn festival.

Parks for Lantern Walks in Singapore During Mid-Autumn Festival

Bukit Batok Town Park

Little Guilin, Bukit Batok Town ParkBetter known as Little Guilin, Bukit Batok Town Park is situated at a former granite quarry. During the day, you can get a good view of the granite escarpment which stands behind the water-filled quarry.

Mid-Autumn Festival, Bukit Batok Town ParkCome evening-time, Bukit Batok Town Park is a spot where you can take a walk along a stone pathway which skirts the water’s edge. Little ones can embark on a lantern walk up the small hillock at the northern end of the park.

Pang Sua Pond

Pang Sua Pond during the Mid-Autumn FestivalFound in Bukit Panjang, Pang Sua Pond sits beside the Senja-Cashew Community Club. Once the sun goes down, the Pond’s boardwalk is lit up, providing a pretty sight as it reflects off the water.

Just next to Pang Sua Pond is Bukit Panjang Neighbourhood 5 Park. If you ignore its rather utilitarian-sounding name, this hilly park offers an interesting spot for children to explore while on a lantern walk in Singapore.

Marsiling Park

Mid-Autumn Festival Lanterns at Marsiling ParkMarsiling Park is a picturesque park with green-roofed Chinese pavilions and boardwalks that kiss the water’s edge. While it used to have a dodgy reputation, since its revamp, it is a now a peaceful and pretty park to visit.

In the evening, Marsiling Park is well lit. The park’s stone bridge is washed in light, creating an ethereal mood.

Toa Payoh Town Park

Toa Payoh Town Park at NightStone arch bridges, geometric footbridges and large, over-hanging trees give Toa Payoh Town Park an old-school charm. When the sun goes down, the atmospheric park turns into a tranquil setting for lantern walks in Singapore. Climb up and down bridges, skip across stepping stones and criss-cross the pond before heading off to explore the rest of the park.
