Zhongshan Park

Standing on what used to be a sugar cane plantation that belonged to local Chinese merchant, Mr Teo Eng Hock, this area was a focal point for Chinese Nationalist activities against the Manchu rulers outside of China.

It is also the residence of Dr Sun Yat Sen, the founding father of the Republic of China, when he visited Singapore in 1906.

The Chinese community in Singapore and Malaya actively supported Dr Sun’s revolutionary work, which resulted in a major shift in China’s political landscape, and had a major impact on the Chinese community living in Singapore and Malaya. In commemoration of this, the public park, completed at the end of 2013 was named “Zhongshan Park”.
