Family LifePost Category - Family LifeFamily LifePlayPost Category - PlayPlay - Post Category - OutdoorOutdoor

These public swimming pools in Singapore with waterslides are ace to beat the heat and keep kiddos happy, with affordable entry!

We love a free activity to keep the kids busy on the weekends and in the sticky heat, swimming and water play are some of our favourites! We’ve rounded up the best public swimming pools in town – all at affordable prices – some from as little as $0.80! We’ve chosen the pools with all bells and whistles – think helter skelter 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 is has your name on it!).

NB. Many of these pools may be closed due to Covid-19. According to ActiveSG, all their public wading pools and play pools will remain closed till further notice. All feature pool amenities, which includes water slides, wave pools, lazy rivers and Jacuzzis, are currently closed till further notice. Lap pools remain open but you must book a time slot through the ActiveSG app ahead of time.

Public Swimming Pools in the East

Our Tampines Hub kids’ play area

1. Tampines Swimming Complex at Our Tampines Hub

Our Tampines Hub is Singapore’s first-ever integrated community and lifestyle hub offering everything from sports facilities to a brand new regional library and an all-inclusive Kids’ Playground on Level 2. The rooftop pools at Our Tampines Hub swimming complex sport views of the city that set this spot apart from many of the others, in our humble opinions! There are 6 pools to choose from, a Jacuzzi and a cute garden-themed kids wading pool (.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!

Indoor covered water play at [email protected] Amaze

6. Splash @ Kidz Amaze

This water fantasy land has got to be one of Singapore’s hidden gems! It’s the Ferarri of swimming complexes (and thus pricier 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 it is fully indoors this one is great for when its actually not swim weather outside! The water temperature is regulated so little ones won’t get a cold fright when the water bucket tips.
Rates: from $16 for kids (from $8 kids members), from $5 accompanying adults, (from $2 accompanying adult member)

Lazy river and wading pools at Choa Chu Kang Swimming Complex

7. Choa Chu Kang Swimming Complex

Choa Chu Kang Swimming Complex is a good choice for younger kids. Similarly to Jurong East Swimming Complex, there’s a lazy river and wave pool to mimic those ocean feels. However the littlies will love the toddler water playground – there’s no scary water bucket so commonly found in most water playgrounds. There’s a very shallow wading pool for toddlers complete with ride-on toys and an area of the wave pool that is suitable for littler kids. If you have big kids or mums and dads looking for some more thrilling action – make a beeline for the three storey helter skelter slides pronto!
Rates: Adults from $1.50, Kids from 80cents (Foreigners from $2)
