Baby Dragon - Mosaic Playgrounds of Singapore

A good stroll away from the Big Toa Payoh Dragon, you'll find yourself at it's smaller version, the Baby Dragon - designed to fit into the smaller housing estates.   When we arrived, a newer playground had been built to one side and some exercise equipment in front. There was also a sign reading that the exercise equipment was for the older citizens and the playground for the young. We felt slightly rejected that we fit into neither category :( I don't think anyone minded though since we were the only ones around :) The baby dragon was definitely not as impressive as the larger version but I appreciated it's design accommodating to smaller spaces.

Again I loved how these playgrounds matched the surrounding architecture :) 
You can also see the replaced sand base with rubber mats! *shakes head*

  3. Can't get over how great the matching of colors with the buildings is, so thoughtful! The color scheme and pattern of the rubber mat does look a little bit off, right? the playgrounds of my childhood were always with sand so this kind of throws me off.

    Great pics Fee!! :)

  5. Thanks guys! Yeah I say bring back the sand :) Singapore's love of colour definitely made me have an appreciation for the country. Everything seems super purposeful, which I guess comes back to their limited space and making the most of what you've got!
