Time Out says

Located at the junction of Upper Pickering Street and South Bridge Road, Hong Lim Park is Singapore’s designated area for free speech, where you can say anything you like: against the government, the PAP or Lee Kuan Yew, with no consequences. However, there are still some rules; we are in S’pore after all. You can’t just go up and talk when you feel like it. You have to register at the nearby police post and (surprise, surprise), no amplifiers or mic systems of any sort are allowed – and with the din of the traffic, it’s nearly impossible to be heard (so you can forget about mass rallies). It might still be worth popping by for a look at night, because, as a bit of side history, it used to be the area for cruising. Even nowadays, you might still see the occasional guy looking for some, uh, inspiration. 

Take Clarke Quay MRT Exit A.
