Mosaic Sparrow Play Sculpture, Tiong Bahru Plaza Playground
Sharing is caring!

The Tiong Bahru Plaza Playground located on level three of the shopping centre pays tribute to the area’s heritage with a design inspired by mosaic playgrounds from days of yore.

The Tiong Bahru Plaza Playground opened in the first quarter of 2017. It located outdoors but under a tarp for shade.


Sparrow PlaygroundThe main play structure at the outdoor playground is a Sparrow Play Sculpture. The head of the Sparrow is covered in red tiles reminiscent of the beloved Dragon Playground at Toa Payoh Lorong 6. It also bears similarities to the old Dove / Seal Playground at Dakota Crescent.

Behind the Sparrow’s head are its pair of grey wings. Angled upwards, they look ready to help the bird take to the sky.

Strung in between the wings of the Sparrow are a set of climbing ropes. Conquer the ropes and kids will be rewarded with a slide that forms the bird’s body.

On the exterior of one of the Sparrow play sculpture’s wing is a twirling, standing swing. On the exterior of the opposite wing is a round swing that kids can lie down on and swing about on.

Play and Bounce
