Water Playgrounds in Singapore (Many Free)

We recently shared our visit the Splash Tribe on Sentosa and received many feedback about this new family-friendly beach club (especially around the pricing and min. spending requirements). That's why, we have decided to share our list water playgrounds in Singapore as alternative options, and most of these are free too! 

Our favourites are the Jelutung Harbour Park, Play @ Height Park, and Splash-N-Surf! What are yours - share it on social media and tag us to let us know!
