Commercial Square to Raffles Place

Commercial Square to Raffles Place

The Raffles Place area has always been associated with commerce. It was an early commercial centre and known as Commercial Square after it was reclaimed from the swamps found on the south bank of the Singapore River. It was renamed Raffles Place on 8 March 1858.

Raffles Place Park Spirit of Commerce

The spirit of commerce still runs strong in the area with its towering skyscrapers all around. Raffles Place Park serves as a spot with a bit of respite for those in need. On the weekends, it is less bustling and more welcoming to families who may be around the area.
