Canberra Park and its playground is a fun spot for a day out in the north of Singapore. This large neighbourhood 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 varying 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 Park

There 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 Swing

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

For 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.

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

Rope Adventure

The third play area at Canberra Park Playground is a rope obstacle course.

This rope course is amongst the longest that we have encountered in any park in Singapore.

Starting from a rope dome, kids can challenge themselves to make their way along net bridges, rope handholds, step plank bridges and cargo nets to get to the other side.

Other facilities found at the 1.5 hectre Canberra Park include a basketball court and fitness stations. A pavilion in the centre of the park provides a sheltered spot to take a break from play.

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.
