Imagine Daddy’s surprise when he pops out from Raffles MRT today, to see his childhood Swings, See-saws and even Merry-Go-Round !
** snap finger and wakeup **
Daddy suddenly remembers we are not talking about the playgrounds in the usual parks or gardens, we are at Raffles Place Park, the heart of Singapore CBD (Central Business District). We played with the Tongkang sculture back in 2009 🙂
This year, nParks is celebrating 50 years of Greening.
In 1963, former PM Lee Kuan Yew lay the seed for our Tree-planting culture, starting the campaign to “GREEN” Singapore.
Raffles Place is the stage for “Playsets of Yesteryears”. The old playground hopes to invoke a sense of nostalgia, and relive some of our memories from the 70s and 80s.
During our media tour, Ms Latif told us more about each garden’s history. Please pop by Singapore-Memory’s section on irememberParks for more stories 🙂
