In 1979, HDB started to introduce new playground designs which conveyed a sense of Singapore’s identity. One such design was the iconic dragon playground, designed by Mr Khor Ean Ghee, a former in-house designer at HDB.
Some may be familiar with this Dragon Playground. It was an iconic playground design in the 80s. Last time it was sand-based but due to safety concern, most has changed to mat-based. To see the most well-preserved and original Dragon Playground, you can found it at Blk 28 Toa Payoh Lorong 6. More can be found at Remember Singapore and The Long and Windy Road.
For the above playground, it is located at Lorong 1 Toa Payoh, near Blk 202 Bus stop.
