Bishan Active Park: Playing Fields & Playground

Sharing is caring!

Bounded by Bishan Street 22 and Bishan Street 23, Bishan Active Park is a large park and field opposite Catholic High School that is designed to be able to host and accommodate large scale events. It also welcomes residents in the area to get active and take advantage of the wide open expanse of the park.

Bishan Active Park playground

One of the features at the park is the Bishan Active Park playground. Found at the southern end of the park, the Bishan Active Park playground is a low, steel framed structure for kids to play and enjoy themselves.

A see-saw inspired set of stepping stones, with hand rails on either side, lead in towards the centre of the playground from one side. There are other spring loaded platforms which kids can also step over to get in to the heart of the playground.

Bishan Active Park Playground Nets

A spiraling cargo net also acts as another play element at the Bishan Active Park playground.


At the centre of the playground, there is a series of suspended hoops which kids can crawl through, testing their flexibility and bravado.

Sound Pipe

To further engage the senses, there are also sound pipes that kids can holler into.

Illusionary Disc Exhibit, Bishan Active Park

Next to the Bishan Active Park playground, there is a weathered Illusionary Disc Exhibit. Dating back to May 2009, this is part of Science in the Heartlands, an edutainment project by Science Centre Singapore.

By spinning the wheel, Moire Patterns form as the disc spins around.
