A burst of colour erupted as children whizzed down the 32m-long High Adventure Roller Slide at Admiralty Park.

The slide is lined on both sides with bright motion-sensor LED lights, which will illuminate it from 7pm to 11pm daily.

It is one of 26 slides at the park, which reopened on Oct 28 after a two-year facelift.

The park is home to Singapore’s longest and tallest tube slide in a public park, at 23m long and 9m high.

Children and adults can also check out Singapore’s longest outdoor slide in a public park, at 34m in length.

“There are slides for all ages, so all of you can try them out,” said National Development Minister Lawrence Wong to a crowd of park visitors.

Mr Wong, who is also Second Minister for Finance, tried some of the slides afterwards.

However, some parents have raised concerns about safety regarding the slides at Admiralty Park.

In an incident reported by Shin Min Daily News, a 24 year old woman, Ms Jiang, sustained injuries to her head, shoulders, arms, thighs and spine while going down the slide.

Admiralty Park is located along Riverside Road and, at 27 hectares, it is billed as the biggest park in northern Singapore.

The park was closed in 2015 for the revamp. Its 7 hectares “urban area” cost $13.5 million to develop.

In December, a 20 hectare “nature area” will be opened, said Mr Wong.

The nature area will feature a new viewing platform and mangrove boardwalk.
