Newly revamped Admiralty Park features 26 slides for all to enjoy

The newly opened Admiralty Park features 26 different slides for the whole family to enjoy, including those with special needs.

Mr Lawrence Wong, Minister for National Development and Second Minister for Finance, launched the park and said :

"The NParks has redeveloped it in line with Singapore's 'Garden City' vision since 1967, as introduced by Singapore's late Prime Minister, Mr Lee Kuan Yew."

Mr Wong added:

"We've come a long way in building our 'Garden City'. Today, we have an extensive network of green spaces... 80 per cent of our residents live within a 10-minute walk of a park, we will increase the percentage to 90 per cent."

This will be the largest park in northern Singapore.

It is also equipped with colourful motion-sensor LED lights that will shine from 7pm to 11pm every day.

According to The Straits Times, the park offers a nature area, which will be opened in December and this includes new features like a mangrove boardwalk and viewing platform to encourage visitors to get closer to nature.

Parks sought around 4,000 suggestions from the public on ideas to improve their park and spent around $13.5 million on Admiralty Park's urban areas.

Most of the residents in the neighbourhood requested for more family bonding spaces while also retaining the natural greenery of the park.

This is in line with NPark's initiative to encourage more diverse and inclusive play areas for children of all ages and people with disabilities.
