After our failure of searching the animals playground in Sun Plaza Park, we decided to give one more try for the Mangosteen and Watermelon Playground in Tampines Central Park. I read about this in some websites, and Rafael and I were very interested to visit this play area. Usually there was a pineapple playground too, but I read that it has been replaced with the new plastic playground.
Rafael said we should go here before these two playground “extinct” just like the animals playground or the pineapple playground. So here we were on a nice Saturday afternoon looking for this playground. Luckily, the rain came after we finished playing in this area.
Tampines Central Park is located behind Tampines Swimming Pool (we had to ask directions two times before reaching this playground). To our suprise, the park was big wit lots of spaces, fresh air, playgrounds, gym area, tress and bushes, benches, and there are HDBs surrounding this park. The weather was very good (the air was really fresh since there were many trees and bushes). The cement field was also quite big for the children to ride on their bikes. I really like this park. Living here is like having a beautiful playground in your terrace.
There are more than enough play areas for my son to enjoy. We spent quite a long time here to explore all the play tools here. It was really fun. We will definitely coming back again.
In our way home, Rafael figured out of where was the pineapple used to be. I think the mangosteen and watermelon are unique. Let’s go and take some nice pictures here before the two of them refurbished by newer playground.
