On 9 March 2010, SingPost released the stamp issue on Playgrounds. With a cartoon inspired illustration, six of the most popular playgrounds in Singapore are printed on the stamps.
“Ask anyone in Singapore and they will be able to recall fond memories of fun times at the playground as a child. Playgrounds are important places for children to play in. Playing helps children to develop their social skills, physical coordination, strength and flexibility. All these become their lifelong skill sets that are carried forward into their adulthood.”
West Coast Park, one of the largest parks in Singapore, is pictured on the 1st local stamp. The Toa Payoh Dragon Head Playground, which stands at the junction of Kim Keat Link and Lorong 6 Toa Payoh, is found on the 50c stamp. The newly built Sengkang Sculpture Park (65c) contains a collection of marine life-themed sculptures and is a popular hangout for children.
The 80c stamp shows the Vivo City alfresco playground containing unique water features and playground equipment. Pasir Ris Park is one of the all-time favourite family-friendly places and is depicted on the $1.10 stamp. Lastly, Hindhede Nature Park ($2), an adventure park located at the foot of Bukit Timah Hill, is one of the popular destinations for those who enjoy physical challenges.
