Tampines North Park is a green space that serves the surrounding residential neighbourhood. There is a rather large playground that provides an area for kids to have some fun. This neighbourhood space is also set apart because of the IPPT training space that is within the area.
Tampines North Park Playground
The playground is a fun and interesting one with play elements such as a bright yellow slide, some stairs and interactive boards. There is a climbing wall with holes for kids to climb across instead of walking across as one would on a bridge.

When kids get across from one end of the climbing wall to the other, they can play amongst the blue spheres as well as some platforms that kids can balance and jump across.
There is also a playground that is suitable for toddlers in the nearby area. The play area is designed to be lower to cater to the smaller build of toddlers and there are various graphics and a maze with a few windows.
Tampines North Park Fitness Corner
Opposite the Tampines North Park playground is a fitness corner. The exercise equipment is blue and red with a yellow shelter shaped like leaves. Here, one can do both upper and lower body exercises at their own time and pace.
