Origami Playground

The origami playground is so-called because of it looks like a sheet of art paper which has been folded into a crumpled rock sculpture. With sharp lines that look like paper folds, the Jurong West origami playground is designed for climbing.

Approaching it closer, you will find colourful climbing handholds at dotting the walls of the play structure.

A sloped section of the sculpture also has climbing ropes in addition to the handhold.

For younger kids who may be afraid to climb up the origami playground, there is a low mound with clear plastic bubbles on top. Young (and small sized) kids can crawl into the tunnel under the mound and pop their heads in the bubble for a look around.
