14) Where is your Tunnel of Memories?

If you asked around the locals about this pedestrian tunnel, they will concur with a smile of contentment.  This is a well-known pedestrian tunnel connecting Queen Elizabeth Walk (Esplanade Park) to Empress Place.  Apart from crossing over on the Fullerton Road that leads to Anderson Bridge, this is a leisure way to enjoy the beauty of the Singapore River.  In the past, it’s a park where families spent their weekend on.  Couples holding hands, dress up like super stars in their bell-bottom pants meet up in the park.  Gone were those days, where happy couples, groups of youngsters, families with kids gathered around on weekend in this memorable park of pride.  It leaves good memories in most children in the 60s/70s.

On top of the tunnel is Anderson Bridge, a famous local landmark visited by countless.

The concrete parapet wall remains the same standing under the rain and sun unlike the landscape of Esplanade Park that has changed tremendously.

It is quite amazing to see those trees still standing green and lavish while those who once saw them were long gone…

  1. Nicely done Sydney, I always enjoy coming back to your blog and post. Thanks for sharing the beauty of Singapore.

  2. I like the design of the tunnel that is near the Fort Canning Park, was excellently designed withe stairs spiral up, and good texture of the walls and the floor. This is the only highest quality of work, design, and arts in every aspect that I have seen in Singapore.

  3. i wonder if you can ride a bicycle threw that tunnel

  4. Don’t have a personal tunnel yet, will get right on it-:) I love your tunnel photos

  5. I still remember going under the Woolwich tunnel in the UK with my Grandmother. Sometimes we would use the Ferry but it was quicker by tunnel. I don`t think I would try it now as it has become a muggers paradise. Those were the days you felt safe, or was it just the faith of youth and being with your grandmother?

  6. Great shots and a creative theme! Cheers Sydney! :)
