Pack in your swimsuits and head out for a refreshing dip in the water with your kids at these public swimming pools!

We love sunny Singapore but getting scorched all year round can get rough. This is probably one of the reasons many of us relish going to the pool. After all, there is nothing as fun and refreshing as playing in the water on a toasty afternoon.

Thankfully, there is a public pool in almost every neighbourhood. We have compiled a list of kid-friendly swimming spaces with fun features like fountains, waterslides and pools with a view. Whether you’re a serious swimmer or are just looking to make some splashes, here are the best swimming pools to check out in Singapore!

When the kids get tired of splashing about at the brightly coloured water playground, they can take a break and go for a dip at the kids’ pool. Little tots who are still getting used to pools, they can dip their feet into the water by getting on one of the yellow buckets on a carousel! This outdoor water play facility also has a lazy river where you can drift around the water park along with your children.

The swimming pool at SAFRA Yishun gives off beach-resort vibes with its cerulean pool, rows of deck chairs, big umbrellas, and verdant trees. Not only do you get to swim with a view, but you also get to make big splashes at the hulking rock structure fronting the outdoor rock climbing wall. Built in with slides and a mini waterfall, it’s huge fun. As a bonus, the different pools are connected by water linkways, so you don’t have to pad over scorching tiles to head over to the next pool!

The kiddies also get their share of splash action over at the pirate-themed shallow pool. In the pool sits a little island with slides surrounded by water, water cannons, sprinklers and water misters, which is perfect for imaginative water play.
