    Default Any more to add?

    According to this website
    http://www.cnngo.com/singapore/play/...sterday-483500
    There are abt 5 old playgrounds left. Any one got other spots so that i could go n take photos of them? I know kranji got one, but quite hard to reach.
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    There is a playground at Tiong Bahru Park, with a train design, and a MERRY-GO-ROUND~!

    There is a rather comprehensive list compiled by Justin Zhuang from just rambling, accessible through Google maps here. Quite useful especially for locating the playgrounds using your smart phone.

    Finally done most of the available. Tiong Bahru side, no go recce. The kampong bahru, can forget it, was there when the railway incident. Dover playground the worst but it's one of them which I use to play at AMK dragon longer, but 1 color, haha! 2 mini dragon, the one at bradell not on sand and so does the AMK one. I will go to Kranji (hard to access) when got free time. For those need to take permanent close shop house, can go dover there. Al the building are blocked, can't access up. If you need those gates effect, can go n see see look look. Hopes my future got chance to see the photos next time if those playground dont exist anymore

    Not mine la. But some of those old playgrounds which I played, not in that link. Thanks for featuring this thread in ur CS FB.

    I just respect those old playgrounds. Makes our childhood so wonderful and without them, we aren't happy cause we got no ipad, PSP, NDS etc... that time and one game and watch device is a rich man kids toy, not for me this poor kid.

    Btw, my primary school mate, his parent are rich. Got those japanese transformer. POWER! If he kept them well, he should be making a lot of $ by selling them, haha!

    The clock playground in front of Blk 176 Boon Lay Drive has been fenced up and slated for demolition soon.

    The Dover Road Hare and Rabbit is still there but may be fenced up soon.

    Is the seal playground at Dakota still around?
