The Tampines 1 Playground, found on the rooftop of the Tampines shopping mall, offers both dry and wet play areas for kids.
The dry play area at the Tampines 1 Playground consists of a faux rock climbing wall. Handholds situated within the wall let kids scale up the rocky wall. An archway in the wall is where a khaki-coloured slide with gentle curves extends from down to the ground. To reach the archway, kids can climb up an orange ladder set at the rear of the wall.
The Tampines 1 Playground dry play area is covered with a shade, which is good news for the times when the sun is directly overhead.
Other play equipment found at the Tampines 1 Playground include a toddlers’ area for children between two to five years old. Here, there are teeter-totters and some activity walls where kids can engage in simple play activities.
At a purple play wall, there are arches for toddlers to climb through as well as a very low slide.
