Wordless Wednesday {linky}: Singapore Playgrounds - Kallang Wave Mall Waterplay | Week 29

Where is this week's playground?
Level 3 Rooftop, Splash N Surf, Kallang Wave Mall, 1 Stadium Place

FUN Factor?
9/10. This has got to be the best FREE waterplay area we've been to in
Singapore so far! With an excellent view of the Sports Hub and beyond :)
There are 5 slides of different gradient, water jets, water pails...

... and even a small wading pool {0.5m deep} with a bucket-seat carousel for toddlers.
A lifeguard is on duty during operating hours - 8am to 10pm daily.

Within the same Splash N Surf zone there's also a Lazy River {1m deep} you can float along
in for a small fee of S$2/day {unlimited usage}.
Get your tickets at the OCBC Aquatic Centre {Level 1} Information Counter​.

I suggest coming on a weekday as it gets super crowded during the weekends / public holidays.
Shower facilities available and suitable for kids of all ages.

When we were there Lil Pumpkin made friends with a young girl from China
who couldn't speak any English. I'm so proud of Lil Pumpkin for trying her best
to speak Chinese and communicate with this 姐姐!
Chinese doesn't come easy to her and I really admire her effort to apply what she's been learning to form simple sentences and hold a conversation with her new friend (。◕‿◕。)

P.S. See 20 How to Learn Chinese Tips from parents, for parents!

Play is important for children to learn, grow and discover the world we live in.
As we visit as many fun, nostalgic and even quirky playgrounds as we can this year,
I hope to inspire you to make play an even bigger part of your kids' lives and
explore much more of our beautiful Singapore!

Wow! That has to be the coolest playground I've seen yet! I'd spend many a day in that lazy river.

Looks like a fun place to enjoy a summer day.

Theresa Mahoney said...

That's FREE!? You guys are so lucky! Even $2 for the lazy river is a bargain!

Sweetday said...

Had to agree this is the best FREE water playground! Although Little One prefers the one at Children's Garden which is a lot simpler.

We have something similar here in Memphis.

We'll definitely want to be back to try the Lazy River!! Inside the mall there's rock-climbing facilities too!

Water parks are so nice! When it gets hot out, it's great to have some place to play.

OrangeHeroMama said...

ok, wow wow wow!!! I want to visit this park! How cool is that?!

Bumble Bee Mum said...

Definitely my favourite water playground in Singapore - because it is FREE!! Haven't tried the Lazy River though, because it is not free. Haha.. Oh my, I'm so cheapo.

stevebethere said...

What a great fun park and so bright and colourful even better it's free :-)

Have a splashtastic week

Susan said...

So empty when you went. Though we went on a weekday it was so crowded as some of the cc were there for their excursion. Keen to try the wall climbing too. Shall we make it a playdate?

stephanie @ stephsjoy said...

That is sweet that she tried to speak Chinese! I like the pics., the double slide would be my fave. :)

Stacy said...

This one looks da bomb! Oh wow.

Hmm I kinda thought speaking Mandarin is a norm for all Singaporeans heh.

Ai Sakura said...

In Singapore most would learn Chinese as their second language, but not all would use it in daily life or at home haha. I guess that's why locally, such people are called "bananas" - yellow on the outside, white (ie think and speak like ang mohs) on the inside :P
