Where’s a place in Singapore where kids can cycle and scoot freely on the road?
The Road Safety Community Park, of course!
I remember coming to this place when I was just a kid. Those days, it was common for schools to bring their students here for excursions and to let them learn about road safety.
This was the first time our trio visited the park. The moment we stepped into the park and I told them that there was a pretend-play petrol kiosk, they zoomed off excitedly.
They were extremely amused to be able to pretend pumping petrol into their “vehicle”. They have seen their daddy doing that before and it was fun for them to finally be able to give it a try. Even Elly was able to try pumping petrol!
At the Road Safety Park, the kids get to learn to follow traffic directions. We told them to make sure they followed the arrows on the road and not to go in the opposite direction. It was great for them to learn such traffic rules in a very safe learning environment.
They also learned to stop at traffic lights.
As an adult visiting the Road Safety Park, I find these mini road replicas really cute. There is even a mini roundabout!
This is a great place to bring the kids to, with either their bicycles or kick-scooters and let them have some fun
driving cycling or scootering on the road, without us having to worry that they might get knocked down!
We only wish that the management of The Road Safety Park could provide some mini cars for kids. It would be really fun for the kids if they could get to drive around the Park in a mini car, like what they have at Legoland. The Road Safety Park could even earn some revenue from the rental. Good business suggestion, no? :)
Things to note when visiting:
1) Bring mosquito repellent. We were bitten quite a number of times!
2) Let your kids wear caps/hats/sunglasses as it gets quite hot in the afternoons.
3) Bring your own “vehicles”.
