You’ve probably seen our list of outdoor playgrounds in the north, now it’s time for the east! While it may not have as many quirky structures as the north, the east does has its own watermelons, mangosteens and bumboat.

Whether you’re an eastsider looking for a new spot for your little ones’ playtime or you’re visiting the east with your little ones, here’s a list of 14 free outdoor playgrounds in the east to check out!

1. Pasir Ris Park Playground

Location
110 Pasir Ris Rd, Singapore 519113
Operating hours
Daily: 24 hrs

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 is likely to keep your little ones busy for hours.  

2. Bumboat Playground

Elias Mall, 625 Elias Road, Singapore 510625
Operating hours
Daily: 24 hrs

Once upon a time, the bumboat, also known as the sampan was a common sight along Singapore River where it ferried cargo from larger ships to the shore. While it is not as common these days, you can still catch sight of it at some places. One is anchored near the Elias Mall.

Sitting atop a sand pit is the mosaic playground built decades ago to resemble a bumboat. The structure is split into two, featuring a climbing pole and concrete slope on one side and a tyre climbing structure leading up to a set of stairs.

If you’re heading out with your young ones for a little lunch at the Changi Village Hawker Centre, you’ll be delighted to know that there is a playground located close by.

Changi Beach Park has not one but two playgrounds. One with the usual suspects—bucket swings, slide, bridges and cargo nets—and another a distinctive orange play structure inspired by the sea. Tots who just can’t get enough of climbing atop couches and chairs will love this playground with its multiple climbing structures. Alongside the swings and slide, the large sandpit also has an abandoned raft for little seafarers looking to set off on a journey across the ocean!
