Jurong Central Park

Jurong Central Park is a new 8-ha regional park in the Jurong West area and is the first in Singapore to have life-sized board-game features in a park. Situated across the Boon Lay MRT Station, the park is accessible via the Jurong and Jurong West Park Connectors. The park is also located next to the Safra clubhouse in Jurong West.

The life-sized Snakes and Ladders playground and Ludo Garden were developed based on the traditional indoor children's board-games enjoyed by many internationally. Visitors can now enjoy the games outdoors using the dice tower built in the park for game play. The life-sized games were developed to add a new dimension to the play experience using greenery, sculpted terrains and various play equipment to fulfil diverse aspirations for play in Singapore.

It was completed in the first half of year 2008, and was previously a piece of empty land.
Its most attractive building is the clock tower situated at the side of the park.

Over the years, this park also has slowly became a hotspot in jurong to fly kites. Many kite lovers come here to fly kites often. 

The tiny lights are the kites at night
