Sitting in an air-conditioned room right by your room might seem like a great idea in Singapore's toasty weather but where's the fun in that? Instead why not head out for some refreshing splash-splash at these awesome water playgrounds with your kiddies? It's fun and best of all, it's free!

Oasis Waterpark at Nee Soon East

This large Oasis in the suburbs is made up of three main play areas consisting of water buckets, mists, showers, sprays, water cannons, and shallow pools. A quick note for parents with free-running kids, while the play areas are mostly padded, some areas can get very slippery so you might want to keep an eye on the little ones, which thankfully you can do from the sheltered rest area.

    Thanks for letting us know. We have updated the information to help other parents avoid the same situation. Hope that you managed to make another trip down to have fun!


  • Crissa

    Clusia cove at Jurong Lake Gardens is closed on Monday’s for maintainer, as is the entire playground Forest Ramble (the gates are closed). All the water is drained off at Clusia Cove on Mondays and park personnel make sure nobody walks on the structures. While Jurong Lake Gardens is open 24 hrs, Forest Ramble is only open 8am – 10pm Tues-Sunday, likewise for Clusia Cove. My kids and I were disappointed to discover this when we visited on Monday afternoon and these play areas were closed for maintenance.
