The Pek Kio Market playground can be found between blocks 41 and 44 Cambridge Road. The yellow and blue playground stands out for its unusual play structures.
Pek Kio Market Playground: Blue & Yellow Theme
Sited on top of a soft padded floor, the Pek Kio Market playground is chiefly made up of five structures that children can play on.
The first is a large yellow slide. This is attached to a blue climbing structure for kids to use to make their way up to the top of the slide. Part of the blue structure is a curved climbing wall with handholds. The yellow slide itself has a rather deep scoop and sends kids back down to the ground.
Beside the slide is a mini flying fox. Actually, it is more like a rail with a slider on it. Children can hang on to the suspended handhold and then zoom their way across the rail from one end to the other.
Next, there is a stack of cubes. Also coloured with yellow and blue hues, the cubes serve as a climbing structure for kids to practise their climbing skills. There are four layers of cubes that they can climb. Of course, they should be careful once they have reached the very top!
In what seems to be a cowboy theme, there is also another structure with a slide at the other end of the playground.
This one has a shelter at the top platform which looks very much like the shelters you would find on a wagon in cowboy movies. It reminded us of the wagon playground in Clementi. Of course, that was more a medieval theme.
In the case of the Pek Kio playground, it appears to be themed after the wild west. At least that’s what we took away from the horse teeter-totter by the side of the wagon.
