Beloved by generations of Singaporeans, the stiking mosaic dragon playground was built in 1979 in Toa Payoh.
But apart from delighting children – and the young at heart – who ran up and down the length of its circular spine, the structure has, over the years, become an icon of Singapore design.
The landmark is a key feature of the 1.3km Toa Payoh Heritage Trail, which was recently launched to showcase the historical milestones of the neighbourhood it is named after.
