Watermelon playground at Tampines Central Park

It's a good news to hear that our government decided to retain the iconic dragon playground at Lorong 6, Toa Payoh.  We visited the playground in July last year.  The neighbouring HDB ("Housing Development Board") public housing at Block 28 is deserted and has been slated for demolition.  Whatever redevelopment it will be, our children sure are lucky to be able to continue to enjoy it. 
Some of the theme playgrounds that are still on my wish list has to be the Train playground at Tiong Bahru and the Battleship at Sembawang.  Yeah, all the boyish stuff!   In the meantime, here is one of the watermelon playground at Tampines Central Park we frequented.  The structures are made of mosaic tiles just like the dragon playground.  Except it has been refurbished with rubber mat instead of white sand box and fitted with two modern rocking animals.  Simply a swing, a slide and rocking equipments are enough to make him the happiest kid!  Pure pleasures.........isn't it?

We revisited the Watermelon playground again!  And noticed, the playground has been refitted with a new black rubber mat and the swing has been removed.  New grills has also been installed around it.  How do you like the new look?
