Esplanade Park feels somewhat overlooked today, though back in 1907 G.M. Reith recommended it as “a strip of green along the sea wall, with a footpath, which affords a cool and pleasant walk in the early morning and afternoon”. Even a few decades ago, it drew flocks of locals to its seafront promenade, Queen Elizabeth Walk. Now it’s the fresh water of man-made Marina Bay that’s on view, and the vista is slightly spoilt by the new Esplanade Bridge in the foreground.
