Just opened, the new ActiveSG Swimming Complex@Bukit Canberra features four swimming pools suited for different needs - a 6-lane sheltered pool, an 8-lane outdoor lap pool (up to 1.8m in depth), a sheltered wading pool and an outdoor fun pool for children.
The outdoor fun pool is definitely the big draw for little ones. Families will also find a smaller play structure in the sheltered wading pool - great when it gets too sunny! Overall, this is a cool new spot for families in the area to visit and to have lots of splashing family fun together!
