Admiralty destination park to open in 2015 #Singapore
Children will be able to play on one-of-a-kind giant slides at Admiralty Park when it reopens in 2015 as Singapore's first "destination park". Two other parks, at Jurong Lake and East Coast, which are part of this new park concept, will also boast unique features when they reopen in 2016 and 2017 respectively. The new East Coast Park will get distinctive beach-themed play sculptures, while visitors will be able to "island-hop" between nature playgrounds at the redesigned Jurong Lake Park. The National Parks Board (NParks) gave this update yesterday at a media preview of additions to the Singapore Botanic Gardens. The destination park concept was announced last year by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong as part of the vision to turn Singapore into a "city in a garden".
