Playground with more swings
Canberra Park Playground features the most range of swings of any Singapore playground we’ve visited. While it can be hard to find swings in heartland playgrounds, this is not a concern here. There are a lot of swings in Canberra Park. Swings are available for disabled youngsters. These are supposed to be broader and include a safety lap bar. Toddler bucket seat swings and conventional swings are also. A six-sided swing structure adds to the variety by allowing kids to swing toward each other. A standing swing is a more inventive perspective on a swing (with a handhold to help users keep from toppling off). The single-standing swing is an excellent warm-up for the rope swing, which can handle numerous people.
Adventure on the Rope
The rope obstacle course is the third play area of Canberra Park Playground. This rope course is one of the longest we’ve seen in any Singapore park. Kids can start at a rope dome and work their way to the other side via net bridges, rope handholds, step plank bridges, and cargo nets. It’s a challenge for kids to take on.

How to get to Canberra?
The North-South line will connect Canberra to Sembawang and Yishun MRT stations, making it easy to get there. One of the MRT stations with a crossover track will be Canberra MRT Station. A crossover track, for those unfamiliar, is a second track that allows trains to cross from one to another in the event of a track fault. The best part is that it keeps train services running in both directions if a track failure occurs!
