Coastal PlayGrove is the newest NParks FREE playground to open at the former Big Splash East Coast Park. Coastal PlayGrove boasts the tallest outdoor play feature in town – it’s 16 metres high – with fun climbing activities, long metallic tube slides, a nature playgarden with sandpits and teepees, and a water play area (currently closed).

Long metallic tube slides

We are most excited about the two metal tube slides accessible from the third and fourth floor of the Play Tower at Coastal PlayGrove! The first slide is 7.3 metres tall but the second slide is a whopping 11.9 m tall with a little loop in it. Metal slides at playgrounds in Singapore are contentious – we know many of you think they get way too hot for kids to slide down but the designs here seem to be focusing on speed and thrills for older kids (13 yrs and above). Just dress in leggings/long pants or go before it gets too hot and sunny!

Coastal PlayGrove The Vertical Challenge
Age:
for 13 year olds+
Opening hours: open from Tuesdays to Sundays, 8am to 8pm.

Climbing fun for younger kids

At the base of the Play Tower are the Leisure Nets, designed to resemble waves along the shore and are suitable for younger children, 5 to 12 years old to climb and explore.

Nature Playgarden

Coastal PlayGrove Playground at Big Splash East Coast Park has a small nature playgarden designed with natural wood and sand for kids aged 3 to 12. Look out for a bamboo tunnel trail, wooden teepees for some pretend-play camping,  a trail created with logs, and a sand pit.

Kiddos, see if you can spot birds such as the Black-naped Oriole, Yellow-vented Bulbul, Olive-backed Sunbird, and insects such as the Plain Tiger Butterfly, and the solitary Blue-banded Digger Bee.
