Visiting these public swimming pools in Singapore with waterslides, water jets and lazy rivers is the best way to beat the heat and keep kiddos happy. Plus these swimming pools all have really affordable entry!

We love a free activity to keep the kids busy on the weekends and in the sticky heat, swimming and water play at a free water park are some of our favourites! We’ve rounded up the best public swimming pools in Singapore – all at affordable prices – some from as little as $0.80! We’ve chosen the pools in Singapore with all bells and whistles – think waterslides, tsunami pools and lazy rivers for extra fun! Some swimming pools in Singapore have slides with a minimum height requirement, others are all indoors so you don’t need to check the weather forecast before heading out, and they all have lifeguards on hand (though parents should always keep your eyes on your kiddos, even if the jacuzzi has your name on it!).

NB. Information is correct as of April 2023. Refer to the ActiveSG swimming pool Facilities Closure page for the latest updates.

Our Tampines Hub is Singapore’s first-ever integrated community and lifestyle hub offering everything from sports facilities to a regional library and an all-inclusive Kids’ Playground on Level 2.

There are six swimming pools to choose from, a Jacuzzi and a cute garden-themed kids wading pool (0.3 metres deep) with water fountains, water play tables, water spray guns and a mini waterfall. If mama or dad want to train for the triathlon while the kids are being supervised by their other halves at the pool – there’s a 50-metre eight-lane training pool!

This water fantasy land has got to be one of Singapore’s hidden gems! It’s the Ferarri of swimming complexes (and thus costs more than the others) but it’s more like a water theme park so we think it’s worth the splurge. Spanning 23,000 square feet, the water playground has eight play decks, an ‘Enchanted Deep Sea’ themed playground with interactive water fun, sprays, buckets and slides for kids of all ages. Plus there are five slides to keep the thrill seekers squealing with excitement. As this swimming pool is fully indoors this one is great for when it’s actually not swim weather outside! The water temperature is regulated so little ones won’t get a cold fright when the water bucket tips.
Swimming pool rates: From $16 for kids (from $8 kids members), from $5 for accompanying adults, (from $2 accompanying adult member)
Status: Open!
Swimming pool opening hours: Monday to Friday: 1pm – 7pm | Saturday, Sunday & School Holidays: 10am – 9pm | Monday to Friday on School Holidays: 10am – 7pm
