Description

The Youth Olympic Park  Located at the northern end of The Helix bridge, it is Singapore's first art park, 0.4ha in size. The Youth Olympic Park opened on 24 April 2010. In July, Olympic-themed artworks were installed at the park to commemorate Singapore's hosting of the first ever Youth Olympic Games in August 2010. In the park, enjoy an enriching and interactive art experience, and explore 27 winning artworks by Singapore youths that are based on the theme, "Aspirations for life in Singapore".The park also has a landscaped maze, developed from works by Aniket Chavan. A 4.5 meters high sculpture which takes the form of a mountain, inspired by a drawing by Joyce Seah, with a wind-activated figurine of a girl holding a flag with the words "I want to scale the highest mountain in the world".

There is a rock wall featuring 18 drawings of Singapore icons by youths, depicting some of Singapore's famous icons such as the Merlion, The Esplanade Theatres and HDB flats. The 'Emo-lightscape' was conceptualized by Mr. Kenneth Tan. It is an interactive "hop-scotch" tiles that will light up when stepped on. Another interesting installation is by Lui Honfay entitled "The Ribbon Seats".At the grand steps leading to the entrance of The Helix bridge, visitors can read a poem titled 'Lion Heart' by Amanda Chong.

You will find a complete set of Sports Pictograms at the park. Each edition of the Olympic Games traditionally has its unique set of sports pictograms depicting the sports competed. The set of 26 sports pictograms for Singapore 2010 are the first for the Youth Olympic Games. They are designed based on the elements of the Singapore 2010 emblem, the "Spirit of Youth".

How to get there:
