NParks will not accept applications to use Speakers' Corner at Hong Lim Park this week

SINGAPORE - The National Parks Board (NParks) will not be accepting any applications to use the Speakers' Corner at Hong Lim Park this week.

This is because the park is one of the designated community sites for remembering the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

"With the park designated as a community site, those who wish to speak or organise events at Hong Lim Park (including Speakers' Corner) will not be able to do so," NParks said on its website on Monday.

In all, 18 community sites will be set up across Singapore for the public to pay their last respects to Mr Lee. The sites will be opened daily from 10am to 8pm until Sunday, March 29.
