    clementi central in front of S11 kopitiam. Not the S11 next to NTUC, that one has been taken over. There's another S11 just next to the hawker centre. Comes complete with sand pit too

    Used to have one along AMK Ave ?. I've seen it while on bus number 165. That was like 1+ year back. So cannot confirm if it's still there.

    the one at tampines, outside tamp safra just got demolished very recently. though it was carpet but it was the very very very VERY old kinda dragon one. and my house here all change to carpet and plastic liao. no more concrete because it might be more dangerous to kids i suppose.

    Talk abt old playground, I just remember a SUPER old one inside a school. It was during 1980's and the playground, is a AIR PLANE! Went there only once if I am not wrong, too young to remember that place for now. Think demolished long long time ago. What a waste, too bad plastic not so common last time else the plane still there.
