    Default Anymore "old sch" playground?

    Hi guys.

    I'm thinking of doing a series of heartland photos.
    Now I'm looking for a playground in S'pore which still have the "old sch" playground.

    The old see-saw, the swing and the sand pitch with small tiles as decoration in the playground area.

    Pls let me know through PM or post a reply here, the location of such playgrounds (if there's any).

    Thanks a lot!

    Some sample pics of the type of playground I'm looking for:

    If you want to do an old playground series, you've to do it right here right now, don't wait or it'll be gone.

    Most of the last remaining old playground are in bad shape.

    The last dragon playground in Singapore which was built in the 1980's.
    Location, in front of Blk 28 Toa Payoh Lorong 6.



    Old playground at Dover Road.



    An old playground at Dakota Crescent.



    Dedicated to the Lion statues at Margaret Drive which is now gone.

    I think theres something like it around tampines.
    still has the small tiled structure and stuff.

    Tho they remove the sand and replace it with rubber flooring.
    which is "more safe" :S

    actually, rubber floor more dangerous, can catch fire.
