1. Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden Playground

This is a fantastic park for kids of all ages. Located in Singapore Botanic Gardens, the Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden Playground was the first garden in Asia to be dedicated solely for children. The expansive playground has a sandpit and a tree house for the kids to explore, and on those super-hot days, there’s also a water play area to cool off. The wonderful thing about taking the kids to these gardens is that it’s educational, providing children with the chance to explore nature and learn about biodiversity and wildlife in Singapore. The 74-hectare park area also consists of a farm and an orchard, plus a forest with ponds and a stream – so once they’re done on the playground equipment, you can take them for a bit of exploration. There’s even a café nearby so you can ensure you’re all well fed and hydrated for hours of play! Here’s a tip though, go in the morning as the afternoon can get quite crowded.

2. West Coast Park

The king of playgrounds in Singapore’s west, West Coast Park, has seven different types of play areas catering to all different ages. This means no matter how young or old your children are, they are sure to have an absolute ball! While most of it is sand, there are two areas that cater to the smallest of children – providing softer, safer grounds for crawling and toddling. You have teenagers, you say? Don’t worry, there’s equipment for them too, including the Adventure Play Area and the Ninja Warrior inspired obstacle courses; some adults have even been known to try their luck! If you prefer a more quiet, relaxed area of the park to bring the kids and enjoy a picnic, then head to the eastern portion at Area 1. The park’s adventure playground consists of 8 playsets and obstacle courses, so you’ll have to keep your eyes on the kids as they’ll probably be enticed to head to different play areas.

3. Tiong Bahru Park Playground

Is your child obsessed with trains? Take them to the Tiong Bahru Park Playground. The kids can climb aboard the train structure in the centre of the play equipment. The tilting train consists of an engine, three carriages, and a caboose at the end – providing a lot of room for exploration and fun for the kids! Best of all, in order to exit the train, they need to slide down one of the tunnelled slides. The train structure is meant for kids aged five and older, as the whacky train does consist of different obstacles that can be difficult for younger children to navigate, so be mindful of this age restriction. For the young ones, let their imaginations run wild in the sandy ‘desert’ complete with teeter-totter horses and plastic cactus plants that can be climbed. There’s also a colourful toddler maze with a soft padded play area. The playground also offers zip-lines for older kids, along with swings and a gorgeous old-school merry-go-round.
