Likely to be built in the early eighties together with the bus interchange when Bishan was being developed into a new town in 1982, the clock playground with its colourful appearance and bold curvatures, looks like a page out of a fairy tale.
This Bishan clock playground (above) was part of a series of designs based on children’s nursery rhymes. The colourful mosaic-covered playground with a sandpit comprises a cuckoo clock with a ladder, and a slide behind the alarm clock. The playground itself has a pretty cute design, with two clock faces topped with a candy-coloured roof.
These days you are more likely to find modern plastic sets with rubber flooring. The kids spent a short while exploring and sliding.
