Near Pasir Ris’ Elias Mall, you will find another old playground which incorporated the design of a Sampan with local heritage elements like this bumboat (below).

The sea barges were a common sight along the Singapore River for more than 150 years, ferrying cargo from offshore ships, before they were moved away in 1983 in an effort to clean up the river.

To make it looks just like a real Sampan, “eyes” and tires are also added. With lots of tires to climb or peer through, it can be pretty fun even for such a tiny Sampan playground in Pasir Ris.
