Toa Payoh swimming complex is a pool located in the northern part of the central region of Singapore.
It started its operation in 1973 during the Southeast Asian Peninsular Games. The sports complex consists of a swimming complex, stadium and one sports hall. These facilities were back then used for competition training, leisure swimming and swimming lessons for public uses.

There are few diving platforms in this swimming complex, highlight, however, goes mainly to the 10 meters one.
These diving platforms are uncommon in other swimming complexes. These platforms were used by swimming coaches in Toa Payoh swimming.
It must have driven many 13 to 16 years, old learners, in this swimming complex to some “heart attacks” back then and now.
