We visited our last Old playground in 2011.
Eight of them are listed in our Project Playground.
If you are ever thirsty, the WaterMelon and Mangosteen at Tampines might bring the kids some fruity fun. Daddy loves the Red mosaic which blends in with the surrounding Red HDB blocks.
Kids do what they do best at a playground. Play!
Slides, Run, Hide & Seek (again?)
or Ninja Warrior?
Siblings love to follow their elder siblings. In this case, Boon Xin realised (too late) that some stunts are not suitable for smaller kids 🙁
She fell and imprinted some Mosaic shape above her left eyebrow.
Fortunately, it was nothing serious.
She recovered in time to enjoy a few more swings.
More on the vibrant Red mosaic, and the glass blocks offering peek-a-boo.
5 minutes away, a pair of Mangosteen await. Unfortunately, there are too much graffiti and school children dating their partners within the Mangosteen.
These two fruits playground are at Tampines Central Park, next to Block 858 (PO 520858).

Brings back fond memories for us too 🙂 Jerome visited some others and they have been demolished.. I need to bring Lil Pumpkin back here before it’s gone too (who knows when).
