Singapore Playground

Singapore Playground: Tai Keng Gardens Playground

At the end of Tai Keng Gardens off Jalan Lolam is a Singapore playground called Tai Keng Gardens Playground. This Singapore playground is situated smack in the middle of private residential properties off Upper Paya Lebar Road.

I came to know about this Singapore playground when I fetched my child from a classmate's residence after their meeting over a school project.

While waiting to perform duty as a chauffeur for my child, I took refuge from the afternoon sun in this shady playground in Singapore and wandered around the small green space in search of some photo-taking opportunities.

There were several playground structures that would keep a child happy in this part of Singapore. What struck me as an unusual feature of this playground was the inscription of nursery rhymes on squarish floor tiles.

Here's one nursery rhyme that you or your child living in Singapore will be familiar with:

Rock-a-Bye Baby on the tree top,
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock.
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall,
And down will come baby, cradle and all.

I wonder who would want to hang a cradle with a real baby to a tree branch, at Tai Keng Gardens Playground or at any other Singapore playground?

See more places. Live more life.

That nursery rhyme (Rockabye Baby) is probably the first one I learned as a small child. If you think about it, it's rather morbid; but I never thought of it that way when I was small.

Hi Donna, thanks for visiting and commenting on Seen This Scene That. I agree that it is morbid but as a child in kindergarten, the rhyme was a song sung with lots of fun!
