With the upcoming June holidays, spend some precious family time together with your children. We have come up with a list of 5 outdoor playgrounds that are unique and your child would definitely enjoy.
1. Clock Playground
Parents who are nostalgic about the past can consider bringing your children to the clock playground located in Bishan. Built in 1980s by HDB, it is one of the rare playgrounds that is still covered with mosaic. Kids could find a cuckoo clock with ladder and sit on the rocking horses atop metal springs. Parents with young children should accompany their child as he plays since the pit is filled with sand and not rubber.
Location: 514A Bishan Street 13
2. Vertical Playground
If your child is tired of playing with conventional playgrounds, challenge him to a vertical playground located just a stone throw away from the clock playground. Known as the wallholla playground, it is the first vertical playground to be installed in Asia. Don’t worry if your child is too young for it as we’re confident that he would find one that is suitable for him in the three stories structured playground. Parents who are young at heart can also explore this playground! We’re sure that your child would have a time of his life exploring this playground whilst building up his courage.
