Located at Blk 489C at Tampines St 45, right beside Dunman Secondary School is a vertical playground structure that kids can enjoy playing in. Designed by award-winning playground and landscaping consultancy Playpoint, this structure was designed to suit Singapore’s limited space.
The Vertical Wallholla
Known as the Wallholla, this three-level play structure is a space-saving vertical playground big enough to hold 30 children at once. It has a silver rectangular box structure to contain the brightly coloured orange ramps. There are also nets along the ramps which you can hang on to or crawl over.
Entering the Wallholla
There are two ways of entering this structure. One is via the main entrance located at the side of the play structure, and there are also smaller windows located at the bottom of the structure that smaller kids can access.
Kids can exit the structure by reversing the route that they took to get to the top, or they can head down a grey side! Along the are windows that allow players to see the sky rush pass them as they slide down.
Other Play Equipment at the Tampines St 45 Playground
Besides the vertical Wallholla, are also mini trampoline hills that give a decent bounce and are great for younger toddlers and kids. There are two of these trampolines next to the vertical structure. There is also a netted swing which is again suitable for those of a younger age as well as a gentle ramp and slide.
Other play structures around the area include a nature-themed playground with the main play structure having motifs of a tree and a giraffe structure grazing nearby. The main structure there is a nested structure with green coloured ropes and some rock clinging stones to let players have better footing.
There is a unique looking fitness corner at Blk 489C Tampines St 45 too as there is not the usual designed pull up bars or wooden sit up structures but one that looks a little more sleek and futuristic. The structure can double up as support for multiple exercises, further saving the space in this playground.
