Best free water parks in Singapore

Keep cool and splash around at these water parks

Singapore's weather can get quite hot, so cool down with the whole family at these aqua playgrounds around the island. We've checked out where to go for the best sprinklers, bubblers and water fountains that are great for kids, and adults, too. Best of all, as they are in public spaces, they come free of charge (no admission fees).

Far East Organization Children's Garden

This outdoor playground has one mission in mind: to get everybody drenched. There are water tunnels, stepping springs and various jets your pint-sized terrors – or your mischievous side – can use to hose everyone else down. Even toddlers can get in on the aquatic action, with a safe play zone you’ll feel comfortable letting them roam around in.

Opening times: Tue-Fri 10am-7pm; Sat & Sun 10am-7pm. Closed on Mondays.

Westgate

Level 4

It's called Westgate Wonderland for good reason. This massive playground bears a ‘fantasy garden’ theme and is split into dry and wet sections. Kids can roll around in the small water section and be showered by an enormous watering can that sprays water every once in a while. Parents will be happy to note that there's a free blower room for children to dry off. Avoid the last Monday of every month, when the area is closed for maintenance. 

Opening times: Daily 10am-10pm.

Level 3

It may be a small water play area up in the mall's Garden Plaza section, but the eclectic spread of installations leaves kids with a lot of options. Engage in a friendly battle with rotating water guns, or patiently wait under little buckets to get drenched. There's only one dry bench for waiting parents, but with the changing rooms just nearby, they won't have to take the little ones far.

Opening times: Mon-Wed & Fri 10.30am-9.30pm; Thu 10.30am-7pm; Sun & Sun 10am-9.30pm.

Marina Barrage Water Playground

With water gushing up from almost 30 sockets, you're guaranteed to get soaked when you run through this fountain. If your family doesn’t fancy a wet cool-down on a hot day, they can wait underneath the shady seating area right beside the fountain and enjoy the great view of the Marina Bay skyline. Cap the day out with a picnic on the Green Roof, where your kids can dry themselves under the sun.

Opening times: Mon, Wed & Fri 12.30-9pm; Tue, Thu, Sat & Sun 9am-9pm.

Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park
7/14

Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park

Take a walk along the green space or simply leave your car at car park B (enter from Ang Mo Kio Ave 1) to get to the water park at Pond Gardens. The park is designed to include a series of water channels and draining systems, and kids can control the flow of water by manoeuvring sluice gates – it's sure different from going nuts over the usual water fountains.

The park is especially great for the (really) little ones, as the two main drains are big enough for them to splash around in without having to worry about water getting up to their ears. Tired adults can also sit on the movable plastic structures and let the cool water flow over their feet.

Opening times: Daily 24hrs, but the water is only turned on from Thu-Sun 8-11am, 4-8pm.

Punggol Waterway Park

Not too far away from Punggol MRT station, this water play area is situated in the park's recreation zone. While this water playground doesn’t boast plenty of powerful water jets, its gushing fountains and water cannons are enough to satisfy your kids most childish needs. Make sure to run through the orange ringed structure (pictured) and be prepared to get soaked. There are also toilets nearby and plenty of benches under shaded areas for parents to chill. It can get a bit crowded at times, though, so be warned.

Opening times: Daily 24hrs.

Level 4R

There is plenty of room for kids (and the young at heart) to run around on the spongy, wave-print turf of nex's KidzPlay @ SkyGarden. There's a variety of ways to get wet, from mist machines to a massive centrepiece bucket that creates a torrential waterfall when it tips over. There's a changing room at the corner of the water park, but bathrooms are a drippy walk across the SkyGarden. 

Opening times: Mon-Fri 1-8pm; Sat & Sun 11am-8pm.
