Where in Singapore – Part 2

Following my yesterday’s post on Where in Singapore, I’ve received lots of feedback giving me the approximate location of the landmark shown in that photo.

Peter (in yesterday’s comments post) has highlighted that it is most probably located at the current Stadium Road (it was un-named road in the past even up to 1975).

See the blue ink for the suspected location;

That means it was very near to Oasis Restaurant and the Stadium Boulevard (Stadium Boulevard probably wasn’t built in the 60s).

Thanks to Peter and the rest in other forums for their help in locating the landmark.

Another view of the Kallang Park Structure posted on 4 Jan 2008;

“It was located in the middle of the drive way near the present MacDonald restuarant. Notice my car on the right of the road. I stopped by the roadside purposely to snap this picture. The HDB flats at Old Airport Road  is in the background.”

“The structure was in the middle of the drive way to Kallang Park near the present MacDonald Restuarant. There was no National Stadium building at that time. I used to drive my children to the park to play. There was a large sand pit with swings and merry go-round and also colourful cylindrical tunnel blocks for children to play. I took movies of my children in 8mm film. Recently, I converted the films into DVD. When I saw your blog and the photo, I recognised it at once. I played the DVD to confirm it. I shall get a similar photo and email it to you.”

Thank you Philip!

    Please refer to previous blog where I posted the correct location. IT’s on Stadium BLvd and not Stadium Road. These days the road names are so confusing. Sorry about that.

    Whenever I look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Other than that, excellent site!
