With the hot weather in Singapore, water play areas with fountains, splash pads and wading pools are perfect places for kids to cool off. There are lots of free water playgrounds in the city conveniently located within shopping malls. Below we’ve highlighted 3 of them:
Splash N Surf – Singapore Sports Hub
Located on level 3 of Kallang Wave Mall, Splash N Surf is a pretty sizable playground with two free areas: the Water Play Area for the older children and the Kids Pool for toddlers. The Water Play Area consists of a play structure with five colorful slides of various Heights. The Kids Pool is a mini pool with a depth of 0.5m, and it features a carousel with bucket seats. There are changing and shower facilities at nearby toilets. Splash N Surf also has a half-pipe surf zone (Stingray) and a lazy river, but these are not free-attractions.
Opening hours: 8.00am – 10.00pm, daily.
