Sengkang Sculpture Park is easily identified by its many interesting sculptures. Under a series of overhead train lines, the park at Compassvale North is a showcase of arts in the neighbourhood.
Creative Interpretations of Sengkang’s Past
Sengkang Sculpture Park was built in 2001. Designed to a marine theme, Sengkang Sculpture Park features interesting sculptures which creatively interpret the neighbourhood’s fishing days.
The Whale at Sengkang Sculpture Park
One of the most intriguing sculptures at the park is that of a whale.
The whale sculpture has its fluke up in the air – normally seen when a whale diving into the deep from the surface.
In this case, the whale is still on the “surface” and you can walk into the “ribbed” belly of the beast. It reminded us of this whale playground in Japan.
Art in the Park
Elsewhere at Sengkang Sculpture Park, there are sculptures dancing in unison (or they could also be interpreted as hauling up non-existent fishing nets) …
… and rocky formations painted in different colours (some of which remind us of the Dragon’s Tooth Gate at Keppel Harbour)
There are also coloured balls which double up as seats that you can sit on.
Sengkang Sculpture Park is made up of two sections – a main section that is south of Compassvale Street, and a smaller linear area across the road.
A series of wind sculptures stand at the smaller section.
The sculptures at Sengkang Sculpture Park were designed by Hong Hai Arts, the same company behind the dinosaurs at Woodlands Street 82 and the pair of Kim Keat dinosaurs. According to an interview given in 2018, the project was worth $1 million.
Sengkang Sculpture Park Playground & Other Amenities
Those looking for children’s playgrounds will find two at the park – one at the main area and another at the other section of the park.
Kids can enjoy the playground structures, climbing walls and a spring see-saw at the park.
There is also fitness equipment at the park and you can enjoy a jog around its footpaths.
