Location
110 Pasir Ris Rd, Singapore 519113
Operating hours

With Pasir Ris Park’s playground being one of the largest in Singapore, it is worth taking a trip for even if you live on the opposite end. The sprawling playground can be divided into four play areas, each with a different theme—the King of the Hill with a distinctive swing that curves from the top of the hill to the bottom, a Transport-themed play area where the highlight is a spaceship spring rocker, a small Music play area, and a Galactic-themed area with rock climbing walls and a spinning UFO (if you spin hard enough, your memories from seconds before might be erased).

The playground has plenty of climbing structures, cargo nets, suspension bridges, swings, and slides that are likely to keep your little ones busy for hours.

Location
879A Tampines Ave 8, Singapore 521879
Operating hours
Daily: 24 hrs

The lofty towers of the Tampines Green Forest Park playground that can be spotted from a distance may seem a little daunting for the young ones, after all, the hexagonal map of cargo nets leading up to the first tower is not exactly easy to navigate. When they do conquer the tower, they’ll be able to travel across the other towers via a suspension bridge to the tunnel slide.

For the younger ones (and the young ones who got bored trying to navigate the mass of nets), there is another playground close by. Sitting on mounds of sand, the playground has a main structure with play panels, slide and climbing structures such as pole, ramp and stairs.
