Among all the heritage playgrounds in Singapore, this is probably the most famous. This dragon playground, located near Blk 29 at Toa Payoh Lorong 5, looks even more impressive standing on its own amidst a grassy field, since the blocks nearby have been demolished.
The boys had a fun time navigating its long, winding coils. These are much higher up compared to the dragon over in Ang Mo Kio, so the hubby was a little worried about falls, since the platforms near the slides had no railings, plus the place was rather crowded when we visited.
Crowds and some pushing and shoving didn't deter the boys though. They had a good time running about, playing with sand, climbing through the coils, and sliding down the slides.
We hope to visit again, but we'll probably go on a weekday, since this place really gets packed on weekends!
