Dragon Playground 3D Miniature
9.5 x 9.5 x 8.0 cm

The dragon-shaped sand-based playground used to be a popular design for playgrounds in Ang Mo Kio and Toa Payoh.

After 1993, they were phased out due to safety concerns and it is believed that this Dragon Playground of Toa Payoh (located at Blk 28 Toa Payoh Lorong 6) is the only one of its kinds (sand-based) left in Singapore.

The dragon playground was designed in 1979 by Housing and  Development Board’s (HDB) in-house designer Khor Ean Ghee (born 1935), who got his inspiration from the Oriental dragon commonly seen among the Chinese community in Singapore.
