The brand new Yan Kit Playfield is located at 17 Yan Kit Road and is near Cantonment Road and Pinnacle@Duxton. It was previously the home of the old Yan Kit Swimming Complex, which was the second public swimming pool to be opened in Singapore back then.

It was extremely popular in the 1950s and 1960s but later closed in 2001 due to declining demand.

The new Yan Kit Playfield will cater to multi-generation use and allow residents to benefit from the open greenery and community gathering spaces, as well as to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle.
