Mount Emily Park is tucked away at the top of a hill between the Istana, Bugis and Little India. I found myself here as I was hunting for a geo-cache, but it’s probably not a park that a person would stumble upon ordinarily.
The park is small but with lots of mature shady trees, walking paths, a few killer flights of stairs and a small children’s playground at the top. On the day I visited the only people around were a couple of young women making use of the stairs for some stair sprints and a group of preschoolers doing their morning exercise. It’s definitely a park mainly used by locals and it did strike me that it would be an ideal place for clandestine meetings. Not that I conduct clandestine meetings, mind.
