All kids have dreamt of living in a treehouse, darting along elevated walkways, high above the surrounding land below. While not exactly treehouses, several tower playgrounds and play spots in Singapore do provide kids the opportunity to take play off the ground and up in the air. Elevated playgrounds consist of towers and bridges. Cargo nets lead from the ground upwards to little hideaways perched above.
These playgrounds are both challenging and fun. They allow kids to expend their energy and, more importantly, build a healthy sense of adventure and self-confidence.
