Public Swimming Pools in Singapore
Thanks to the incessant heat our tropical climate affords us, Singapore is well equipped with a host of public swimming pools. Most offer some combo of a main 50m swimming pool, with a smaller toddler pool or a mid-sized training pool and are a bargain to get into (most entrance fees are between $1 and $2 per adult – wallet-friendly!).

Best Swimming Complexes for Families
Jurong East Swimming Complex
A real gem of a swimming pool (it’s one of the largest public pools on the Island) this complex will keep the kids super busy with three water slides (junior must be at least 1.2m tall), a wave pool, a wading pool, a bubble jet station and a lazy river, as well as their normal competition pool. You could easily spend a few hours here or even a whole day; it all depends on how much your water babies can handle. The best part here is the entrance fee is cheap as chips – $2 per adult and $1 per child on weekends (even cheaper on weekdays!).
21 Jurong East Street 31, Singapore 609517
Tel: (+65) 6563 5052
Open daily from 8am-9:30pm (closed Mondays)
Pasir Ris Swimming Complex
The huge water playground, paddling pools and super water slides are the biggest attractions here, not to mention the fact that the entire complex was upgraded a couple of years ago so is still fairly brand-spanking new. Again, it’s best to pick your arrival time carefully as weekends sees the hoards descend.
120 Pasir Ris Central, Singapore 519640
Tel: (+65) 6583 5523
Open daily 8am-9:30pm (closed Wednesdays)
Choa Chu Kang Swimming Complex
We admit it is a bit of a hike but worth it for the children’s water play area, toddler paddling pool, mega waterslide (big kids only!) and wave pool. Don’t forget to hire a floating ring and take a trip on the lazy river.
1 Choa Chu Kang Street 53, Singapore 689236
Tel: (+65) 6767 8606
Open daily 8am-9:30pm (closed Mondays)
Sengkang Swimming Complex
Another great pool for families, toddlers will love the huge water playground, with 2 slides and a ton of fountains. There is also a wading pool and two Olympic sized swimming pools; one is indoors too – bonus! Thrillseekers 5 years + (who are at least 1.2m tall) can throw themselves down any of the six big-kids only waterslides (yes – six!). Be warned it can get crazy busy on weekends and the lifeguards tend to err on the side of caution so it’s best to follow the pool rules to the letter. Yes… sir!
57 Anchorvale Road, Singapore 544964
Tel: (+65) 6315 3574
Open daily 8am-9:30pm (closed Mondays)
Jurong West Swimming Complex
Not to be confused with Jurong East Swimming Complex (same same but different), Jurong West is the less known, and much quieter cousin of the public pool family. It still packs a punch for families though with a kiddy pool, water slide, Jacuzzi, lazy river and two main swimming pools (one is sheltered too!).
20 Jurong West Street 93, Singapore 648965
Tel: (+65) 6515 5332
Open daily 8am-9:30pm (closed Tuesdays)
Water Theme Parks
Port of Lost Wonder
Sentosa’s super popular kids’ club by the beach is both fun and exhausting at the same time. A huge pirate ship with oodles of slides, fountains and buckets of water, will keep all members of the fam busy, but watch out – it can get pretty wild on weekends and school holidays. You’ll need to be on your toes with the tinies or retreat to one of the shaded lounge beds (tough call). The tallest parts of the ship are best left for the oldest ones. Read our full review here.
54 Palawan Beach Walk, Sentosa Island, Singapore 098233
Tel: 1800 736 8672
Open daily from 10am-6:30pm
Wild Wild Wet
Fun is the name of the game at S’pore’s largest water theme park, cleverly designed to offer a range of activities for everyone from the smallest swimmers to the biggest (adults included!). There’s a massive wave pool, a bunch of waterslides, dedicated children’s areas, a lazy river, a Jacuzzi and a waterfall. Even toddlers are catered for with the Yippee play area – there’s a heap of soft climbing equipment in shallow water. Be warned…weekends are a free for all — it can be busy busy busy!
1 Pasir Ris Close, Singapore 519599
Open Mon, Wed-Fri 1-7pm. Sat-Sun & PH 10am-7pm. Closed Tuesdays.
Tel: (+65) 6581 9128
Adventure Cove Waterpark
One of the newest water parks on offer, you can expect a stack of activities for all members of the family. Thrill seekers will love the biggest rides (we see you Pipeline Plunge and Spiral Washout) but are best left for the 7 years + kids; they’re pretty strict on height restrictions here. Littlies can keep cool in the shallow wading pool whilst big bro and sis catch waves in Bluwater Bay. Sassy Mama Tip: Always have your kiddos wear life jackets in the wave pool — it can be a bit rough in there!
8 Sentosa Gateway, Sentosa Island, Singapore 098269
Tel: (+65) 6577 8888
Open daily 10am-6pm
