The annual Tanjong Pagar Gives Back movement was conceived by Discover Tanjong Pagar (DTP) to involve and bring the Tanjong Pagar community together in a series of projects, partnerships and activities that give back to society.
A collaboration with government agencies and private sectors, DTP marks a milestone of another year as a business-led body formed through URA’s pilot Business Improvement District Program, on a Mid-autumn occasion that symbolises reunion of people coming together.
26 March 2022 – Today marks the official opening of Discover Tanjong Pagar (DTP) eco-playground, Singapore’s first inclusive eco-playground designed and built by a business-led body formed through URA’s pilot Business Improvement District (BID) Programme. The playground is made of upcycled wood from felled old trees.
As part of its efforts to make Tanjong Pagar an even more vibrant and green district, Discover Tanjong Pagar (DTP) has pledged to work with other partners and stakeholders to plant a total of 100 trees in the precinct by 2025 as a show of support to the One Million Trees movement, which is led by NParks.
Discover Tanjong Pagar has co-created a playground with the community, for the community. The play area created at DTP Community Green is a showcase of collaboration and possibilities, the people and government agencies behind the scenes to support this project made for the community.
