Play@SG: Rare hopscotch found in a corner of the playground. And other play factors.

Wheels are common in HDB playground, but I rarely see this transparent kind. Or maybe I have not seen enough of HDB playground. There is also a convex mirror which the kids enjoy looking at.

Crowd
We have been there a few times, most of the time it’s empty, occasionally you get one or two kid. I guess this is probably due to the area being an older estate and the playground is not really that fun for older kids.

Cleanliness
The kids hands and feet were really black after the play. I guess without much people playing its natural that the area will collect more dirt. I will give it a 1.5 out of 5 rating for the cleanliness.

Age Group
This playground is really suitable for young toddlers. There is no challenging structures for the older kids.

While There
The block just in front of the playground has a shop that sells cheap baby clothes. It’s those normal plain romper that babies can wear at home. The last time we were there they were selling baby to toddler pajamas pants at $1 a piece.

There is also a couple of stores that sells dried seafood products. You can get the dried scallop there which will make the kids porridge tasty.
