Admiralty Park Playground is a fantastic playground for big and small kids alike with 26 slides of varying sizes and heights plus shady trees –making it the perfect playground for the family!

Unlike many other playgrounds in Singapore, Admiralty Park Playground truly caters to ALL ages, from 2-year-olds wobbling down the baby slides to tweens and teens! The older kids’ playground caters to 12-years-olds (officially) – though we met two (gentle) 19-year-olds who were still having fun on the slides and swings.

Admiralty Park Best For: Kids of all Ages!

Junior Play
Junior Play is aimed at 2 to 5-year-olds and is a riot of fun with enclosed lime green tube slides wedged into a hill, plus metallic open slides of varying heights, bridges, hillocks and tunnels. To make things safe, instead of steps there are cargo nets to reach the slides, or fun slopes marked with footholds to navigate.

Wheel Chair Swing
We loved that there was an Inclusive Playground at the Junior Play area with a swing for wheelchair users only – with hand ropes to be able to swing oneself back and forth, plus an inclusive blue seated merry-go-round with a driving wheel to go faster or slower as you please.

Admiralty Park Playground’s Family Terracing Play
Best For:
  5 to 12-year-olds
Admiralty Park Playground’s Family Terracing Play area is geared to older kids. Two long, very high double barrel metallic tube slides command the playground with a smart enclosed cargo net to climb back to the top. These slides (approximately 23 metres long and 9 metres tall) are the longest tube slides in a public park in Singapore. Wowza!

Flying Fox – at the top of the hill you’ll find a flying fox that whizzes around a circle and is a hit with the older kids.

Adventure Play
Best For:
 All ages (from 3 to bigger kids as old as 12 +)
The Adventure Play section of Admiralty Park Playground consists of two sets of roller slides – one goes straight down the hill for the thrill seekers (a 32-metre long High Adventure Roller Slide), the other roller slide meanders in curves down the hill and is 34 metres long. The rollers actually slow the slide down so kids going down on their bottoms will need to pull themselves down to build up a bit of speed.
Pro Tip: It’s much faster if you squat so that your feet are on the rollers.

Swings
There are plenty of swings at Admiralty Park – and we LOVED the Expression Swing (a bucket seat and regular seat on the same swing). No more pushing your little one endlessly by standing behind them – now parents can sit on a swing and swing their little ones automatically!

As mentioned before there’s also a wheelchair swing in the Junior Play as well.

Admiralty Park Playground is situated within the urban park section of Admiralty Park beside Republic Polytechnic, a 15-minute walk away from Woodlands MRT
Location: Admiralty Park, close to the junction of Woodlands Avenue 5 and Riverside Road
Closest Car Park: Admiralty Park West, enter via Riverside Road

What's New

The #Lifebeyondgrades campaign aims to break the taboo of discussing PSLE scores to stop kids from thinking those results will define who they are or will
become. Here’s Sassy Mama co-founder @mamayeowdevito: “It might come as a surprise, but I just do not remember my PSLE results! I was always non-academic, and only just scraped through PSLE to get into secondary school at St Theresa’s Convent. I recall studying really hard, having lots of late nights, memorising, yet not doing too well. That period of my life is a blur now; maybe I chose to block it out. I knew in secondary school I didn’t want to go to JC and instead researched polytechnic courses for business and marketing. 
I found my first job as a marketing communications assistant at Singapore Marriott Hotel even before my last paper at Nanyang Polytechnic. I was so excited about the job that the studying and results of my diploma didn’t matter. 
I moved onto Raffles Hotel, then Pan Pacific Hotel and very quickly rose to head marketing roles. There was so much pressure to perform but I always had amazing bosses and mentors watching over me, believing in what I did. I worked 25 hours a day but enjoyed every minute. This type of education - LIFE’s lessons, successes and failures - rather than academic lessons - have been the best education for me.
I am successful in my own right now – both in business and with my beautiful family for which I am grateful. I am so lucky to have found what I love to do and am still loving every minute of it!
I don’t remember my PSLE results but whatever they were, I didn’t let them define me. We should not let numbers define our lives; ultimately it’s much more important to help our children develop a strong character, and encourage them to pursue their personal passions. Because neither failure NOR success can be truly quantified.
A little ball of fluff just landed on your Wednesday!
