Tiong Bahru Park Adventure Playground

8l-050Redeveloped in 2000 to the theme of “Old Frame, New Images”, the adorable, tilted choo-choo train carriages at Tiong Bahru Park ‘pop-up’ distinctively in an adventure playground land, built to tease the creative imaginations of children.

Kids (5 years and older) can climb up the ladder rungs or ramps, navigate the slanted obstacles (ropes, webbed nets, wooden planks, railings) in the cabins’ interior in literally ‘through-train’ style, exit from connecting slides, or feel their adrenaline rush as they hurl a short distance on the mini/junior Flying Fox, before going dizzy on swings or a merry-go-round.

Older children would enjoy the thrill of being airborne on the higher, longer stretch of Flying Fox, or kicking a ball in nearby open spaces.

A sandy pit and a small maze let toddlers dig trenches, build sandcastles or simply wander in and out. They can also rock to and fro on several animal-shaped and vehicular riding stations.

8l-020There are benches aplenty and shelters for parents and caregivers to rest as they observe kiddos immersed in play. Adults can try out the exercise equipment, foot reflexology paths, or simply enjoy the flora, fauna and a small pond in the park’s peaceful surroundings.

Best part? It is absolutely free!
