Canberra Park: Ultimate Swing Playground, Dino Bones & Rope Course

Dino bones at Canberra Park

Canberra Park and its playground is a fun spot for a day out in the north of Singapore. This large neighborhood park serves the surrounding residential areas and is clearly designed with play in mind.

Canberra Park opened in 2006 and underwent a $2.2 million revamp in 2014, reopening in 2015. It has three distinct play areas that provide vary levels of challenge for kids of all ages.

Swing, Swing, Swing

The park has the largest variety of swings in any playground that we have come across in Singapore. While many heartland playgrounds don’t have swings or are lucky enough to have one set of swings, Canberra Park has six, no make it seven, types of swings.

Swings at Canberra ParkThere are swings for children with disabilities. These are designed to be wider and incorporate a lap bar for safety. There are also bucket seat swings for toddlers and the standard swings. All these three are line up in a row.

Six-sided SwingAdding to the variety is a six-sided swing structure where kids can swing in towards each other.

Standing SwingRope SwingFor more innovative takes on what a swing is, there is a standing swing (with a handhold to help users keep from toppling off) and a rope swing that multiple kids can ride on at the same time.

A seventh type of swing can be found in the next play area at Canberra Park – the inclusive play structure.

Currently, Canberra Park does not have a car park. Visitors have to park at the nearby housing estate car park and make their way to the car park.
