Opening Hours: 24hrs, Water Play Area (9.30 am - 9.30 pm)

Surrounded by HDB blocks, Jelutung Harbour Park is a hidden secret for families living in the Admiralty and Sembawang area. The water play area might not be massive but it is free and still lots of fun for the kids!
Apart from the water play area, families can also play at the dry playground too! There is a toilet and our experience was that it is acceptable but we have heard various comments that it is usually dirty - so do take note.
