Dragon Playground @Toa Payoh Lorong 6 - PhotoHunt

PhotoHunt theme : Something outdoors/ Silly

After visiting a cousin in Toa Payoh, we decided to look for the Dragon Playground in Lorong 6. It is one of the oldest outdoor playground in Singapore.

My husband and I have fond memories of our childhood days playing at these playgrounds when we were in primary schools.

We spent an afternoon having fun at this playground, reliving happy memories by doing what my son called "silly stuff". LOL

We chatted with a young couple who had brought their young children to play on the slide and sand box. The young man lived in one of the flats for 6 years before his family moved to Sengkang.

The blocks of flats surrounding this iconic playground in Toa Payoh are now empty. They will be demolished later this year. It was reported that the authorities are studying the viability of preserving the playground. That would be nice. :)

    1. We were having fun with the two young children while their parents watched. The lonely dragon needs to hear laughter of children.

  5. Though it's been a number of years, I loved my three visits to Singapore. I didn't make it to this playground but I feasted several times at those wonderful hawker's centers!!!

    My “something outdoors post” is of three West Coast, USA, cities.

  6. Love how small playgrounds appear as adults compared to what they seemed to be like as kids - great shots for this week's theme.

    Have a super weekend.

  7. I'm glad you were able to go back and enjoy your silly days! I'm sure the kids were shaking their heads ... that's our job as parents (to embarass them on occasion!)
    Happy Silly Saturday ~
