Toa Payoh: Dinosaurs Hidden in Plain Sight

My husband had a social function to attend this afternoon at Kim Keat Link. The kiddos and I decided to tag along since we didn’t have much to do at home. Besides, tomorrow is the first day of March Holiday, so we’re free! There’s still plenty of days to catch up on homework.

When we got off the bus outside the Toa Payoh Stadium, we were so excited to have come across this Dragon Playground. All I know is that it’s one of the first few playgrounds to be in installed in Singapore. Do correct me if I’m wrong.

So here we were, checking out the playground.


What a beauty! Apart from the Dragon head design, the play structure itself is unique due to that coil-looking thing. No current HDB playground has it. So it’s definitely special. They could walk on it. The kiddos were slow at first because it was rather high. But after a few rounds they ran across the whole thing.


Some more pictures.


Guess who was sitting in the shade of the big tree? Mama, of course Lol!


I thought the slide was going to be hot but apparently they said it wasn’t. So…



Well, we went to block 245 Kim Keat Link and walked around. There were a total of 5 playgrounds in the vicinity! Most of them were more suitable for 2-5 year-olds but my 7 and 8 year-olds enjoyed nonetheless. One very unique playground featured two dinosaurs and some eggs! Check them out! It’s at block 27 Kim Keat Avenue.


More playgrounds….



If you happen to be around the area, don’t forget to drop by with your little ones 🙂
