Wordless Wednesday {linky}: Singapore Playgrounds - Tampines Mangosteen | Week 10

Where is this week's playground?
Block 858, Tampines Avenue 5.
 Walking distance from Watermelons playground.

FUN Factor?
6/10. Novel, and good for playing catching but
very small & swings hanging from the bar has been removed.
Inside walls of Mangosteens have sadly been filled with graffiti :/

One of the Singapore Heritage Playgrounds.
Do check out the Pipit Mini Dragon, Bishan Clock, Dakota Crescent Dove,
Toa Payoh Mini Dragon, AMK Dragon, Tampines Watermelon & TPY Dragon.
Suitable for kids of all ages.

Note: Currently under refurbishment. Check back at it a few months later.

There used to be a Pineapple Playground in Tampines too, which I thought was really cute!
But sadly, that was demolished in 2009 / 2010.

Play is important for children to learn, grow and discover the world we live in.
As we visit as many fun, nostalgic and even quirky playgrounds as we can this year,
I hope to inspire you to make play an even bigger part of your kids' lives and
explore much more of our beautiful Singapore!

and Susan's SG Heritage Playgrounds series.

Unfortunately the Pineapples Playground has been demolished!!

I can see why the Mangosteens don't really look like Mangosteens though haha..

Our heritage playgrounds are fast disappearing! Such a pity!! I hope they leave those that are still around alone.
