3PlayGrounds would like to celebrate it in a different way. Healthy nation needs healthy citizens, hence we are incorporating an exercise element into the celebration activity.

Let’s have a fun and leisure walk that brings back nostalgic memories of Singapore’s past. Since this is a National Day celebration, we hope members from the East, West and North area to participate in this walking event. To be more meaningful and in sync with our nation, we hope the participants could be in red & white outfit, the colours that represent Singapore.

To make the event for interesting, please bring along something that you think it is representing the past, present and even future of Singapore. The items can be an old currency notes / coins, current school text books, new toys, etc. This is also a way to remind us of the progress our nation has achieved in the past 51 years and to treasure what we have now so as to strive forward to a better future.

How does it work?


There will be 3 routes designed for the different zone participants to walk. The distance is about 5km. Participants are to visit some places when walking towards the final gathering place at Raffles Place. We will send out via mobile phone old/past photos of the places/buildings. Participants are to take current photos of the subjects. It will be a sharing session of the photos we have taken and items we brought with us for the gathering. Many of us will see the stark difference of the places “then and now”.

The mechanics:

-          There will be 3 groups of 20 participants per zone. A leader will be assigned for each group. A volunteer will be very much appreciated. So total 3 zones would have 180 participants

-          Participants would be given clues via mobile phone to take photo of the places they are supposed to visit.

-          Participants from each zone would start walking from the designated route, each zone would have different routes and different places to visit 

-          The groups will walk about 5km towards Raffles Place. The area in front of Raffles MRT. Participants would be sharing their photos and memories of the places they knew during their growing time.

-          When all meet at Raffles Places, participants are to share their findings and we, the organisers will confirm if they have the right places.

-          After the sharing session, participants can choose to end the day or proceed to somewhere for dinner with the new found friendship.
