Itchyfingers have always been on the lookout for old memories of Singapore to photograph, and the children playground is one of them. If you can still remember, Itchyfingers mentioned that we found four old playgrounds and had since written about two of them. This is the third one that Tisu Boy discovered accidentally while visiting his relatives but have not been written about simply because I wasn’t there to experience it myself. Well, until recently…

It was a very sunny morning when we decided to visit this old playground. Took a while to find as we weren’t very familiar with the place. When we finally saw it, I was so excited cos it was another differently designed playground from the previous two.

Rather than having separate swings and slides, this playground has all the
different components connected as one single unit

View from the other angle. I don’t remember playing in one of these before..

Wow! Certainly looked fun! Of cos Itchyfingers won’t miss this opportunity to have some fun, especially since no one else is playing! 😀

steps
First, climb up these steps…

down
..then slide down! Woohoo…! 😀

swing
Then run towards the middle…you can choose to slide down from this
red pole like what army boys were trained to do…

..or continue screaming and running across this bridge to the other side…

bird
…where you can see the birds..or seals or whatever you imagine this to be!

paint
In between screaming and running, don’t forget to stop to admire how
time made the old playground so charming…like these layers and layers of
peeling paint on the railing…

End off by sliding down from the other end…but wait…

cat3
There was a cat lying on the steps…

We didn’t want to disturb it, so we ran back from where we began…

cat2
..to take a picture of her, now obviously alarmed by us…

slide
Then we repeated the process again…this time slided down besides the stairs
where the cat was sitting…but hey…she was gone…

She had ran down to lie on the sand, trying to get some peace…
:p

swing2
Next, run across and grab one of these swings…and enjoy the wind
blowing onto your face…eeeeeha….
😀

playground3
Before Tisu Boy pointed to the hole below the bird structure and ‘proudly’
declared his favourite childhood pasttime, which turned out to be….

die-fish
…catching half-dead fish from the drain and then burn them in the hole!
Wow! So evil!
:O

We ended our play time by running up the nearby flat to take an overall
view of the playground
