Tekka Centre Playground in Little India: Flying Away
From one angle, the Tekka Centre playground looks like a sphere that is blasting off from the ground.
The round, orange ball hides a platform that kids can climb up. It is elevated off the ground at an angle by four steel props.

Children can reach the platform using a rope tunnel that leads up to the centre of the orb.
Climbing upwards using the hand and footholds, they will be able to ascend to the fun tilted platform above.
We liked how the design of the Tekka Centre playground also incorporates other ropes around the orb, as if it is holding it down to the ground.
Taken from that perspective, the sphere looks like a hot air balloon that is being swayed by a gust of wind and the ropes are tethering it to the ground.
Some of the ropes also have hand holds. These act as another option for kids to play by climbing up on the ropes.
Besides the main play structure, there are also teeter totters at the playground.
They’re also play panels for toddlers and younger kids as well as seating for parents and caregivers around the playground.
