HDB playgrounds have come a long way since the iconic Dragon-themed one we knew as kids. Just look at this Instagram-friendly playground at Keat Hong Mirage in Choa Chu Kang!

This military-themed playground pays homage to the former Keat Hong army camp that used to be in this area.

Kids can climb up, in and slide out of the eye-catching army truck, or take the wheel in the driver’s seat. They’ll love stepping on the “fallen” crates, which also double up as seats.

There’s also a watch tower to climb up and a fireman’s pole to slide down, and we like how the rubber mat underfoot echoes the military theme, as well.

This playground is one of six new generation HDB playgrounds built in recent years. It’s located in front of Block 817B Choa Chu Kang Avenue 1.
