The June holidays is just right around the corner! With an entire month for fun and play, you’re probably cracking your heads, wondering where you can bring your kids to have fun. While exploring the great outdoors sounds like a brilliant idea, sometimes you just want to retreat to the comfort of an air-conditioned area and take a break from Singapore’s sweltering heat. So, check out this list of spaces where you can cool down and relax with the entire family!
Families with Kids 12 And Under
Have you ever chased your young kid around and wondered where all that energy comes from? Parents, we feel you! Kids 12 and under seem to have expandable amounts of energy to run and jump around. So here are 3 spots where they can burn all that energy.
1. Play Your Heart Out at Happy Park, Waterway Point
This playground at Waterway Point, Level 2 is probably the coolest playground in Punggol. Not only does it overlook the picturesque Punggol Waterway, it also features wet and dry play areas where your kids can run around and have a great time!
The main highlight will definitely have to be the lily trees. These massive trees are almost impossible to miss from afar. Your kids will love climbing up and down this huge structure. And if that’s not enough, the great big water curtain splashing from its centre will have your kids jumping for joy!
Parents, we’re not forgetting you as well. Chill at one of the comfy seats dotting the area while enjoying panoramic views of Punggol Waterway. Did we mention that Happy Park is FREE as well?
