We Singaporeans love free things to the extent that we are willing to queue hours for almost anything.

It’s not like we’re cheapskate.

It’s just damn ex to live in Singapore, please…

With Singapore being the most expensive country in the world to own a car.

It definitely helps if we can save on petrol and stuff like parking fees.

So, in order to help our fellow Singaporean drivers save as much as possible, we’ve compiled a list of places where you can enjoy free parking.


TL;DR: Car Parks in Singapore with Free Parking

Seedly Free Parking Singapore

Sick of paying ridiculous parking fees wherever we go, we decided to compile a list of places with FREE PARKING to help you save on car park fees.

These venues have different free parking schemes:

  • Free Parking All Day – Usually parks or nature reserves to encourage you to explore the great outdoors. Note: not ALL such carparks are free.
  • Lunchtime Free Parking – Usually for shopping malls to entice Singaporeans to visit them for lunch.
  • Free Parking After Certain Time – Usually for off-peak hours
  • Free Parking With Minimum Spent – Not technically free, but also not bad lah

Free Parking in Shopping Malls in Singapore

Shopping malls are part of a Singaporean’s daily life.

Whether you’re just getting dinner or grabbing some groceries at the supermarket, you’ll inevitably find yourself in one.
