Pop-up play area opens at Queen Street to mark wider pavements

SINGAPORE - Pedestrians on Queen Street at Bras Basah can now enjoy an interactive 3-D 'jigsaw puzzle' outside the Waterloo Centre.

The public can assemble three sets of large foam structures designed to look like old playgrounds from Singapore's past - the dragon at Toa Payoh, the watermelon at Tampines and the elephant playground at Pasir Ris.

This pop-up play space will be open this Friday at the new Waterloo Centre plaza - named Artsplace - until the end of the month.

It marks the end of the Urban Redevelopment Authority's street enhancement works along Queen Street, which were aimed at creating wider sidewalks and more public spaces for events.
