Meta Description

This Esplanade Park Playground gets nestled in a calm and Highly greened part of Esplanade Park, with the Singapore CBD skyline as a backdrop. 

Features 

Esplanade Park’s playground contains two swing sets: one for children aged two to five and another for youngsters aged five to twelve. There’s also a slide, see-saw, and spinning disc, all of which appear a little dated.

The play equipment’s metallic appearance complements the surrounding Esplanade Bridge and the spikey dome of the Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, which can get seen from behind the bridge. Green lily pads and timber turtle sculptures appear to belong in the neighboring lake. A wall of bells alongside the Esplanade Bridge is a unique element of the Esplanade Park playground.

Esplanade Park — A Memorable Location

Aside from the playground, Esplanade Park has long served as a memorial to primary events in the city’s history. The beautiful Tan Kim Seng Fountain gets moved to the area in 1882 (we are perhaps more familiar with Kim Seng Road, named after him). The Cenotaph is a Memorial to World War I servicemen who died in battle. It gets first presented in 1922 and later enlarged to honor those who died during World War II.

On the occasion of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation in 1953, the promenade facing the water was renamed Queen Elizabeth Walk on the 10th anniversary of the war hero’s death, and the Lim Bo Seng Memorial gets unveiled nearby.

These features Esplanade Park’s majestic appearance, complementing the Civic District and buildings like the Asian Civilisations Museum, Victoria Concert and Memorial Hall, and National Gallery Singapore.
