Splash-N-Surf Water Playground, Kallang Wave’s Singapore Sports Hub

As parents, we sometimes feel like it’s necessary to take our kids out to have fun at theme parks, indoor playgrounds, the movies and it can be a costly affair especially when you have  more kids. But I’ve learnt that kids hardly bother about where they go as long as they are out having fun with friends.

And in this aspect, I’m really thankful that we have so many fun for free options in Singapore. From parks and gardens, beaches and playgrounds including water playgrounds conveniently located within shopping malls.

Splash-N-Surf Water Playground, Kallang Wave Mall

Sophie’s childcare centre recently took all the kids for an excursion to the Splash-N-Surf water playground at Kallang Wave Mall. The children were so excited because on regular days, they don’t get many opportunities to be outdoors as the cc is within the CBD area. It’s not ideal since kids love to be outdoors within nature, running around so they do get to go out for short walks.

With such scorching hot weather these days, all of them were looking forward to some splashing fun.

Splash-N- Surf water playground is one of the latest water playground conveniently located on level 3 of Kallang Wave Mall. Unlike the other water playgrounds that we’ve been to, this one is pretty sizable with two areas.

On one side, is a mini pool with a depth of 0.6m. The height is just nice for my six-year-old. But then again, she’s vertically challenged like mummy, so for the average four to five-year-olds, this is a very comfortable depth for them.

What’s assuring is that there is a life-guard on duty to keep a look out for the kids, because when they start to have fun, they tend to forget about safety rules.

Little toddlers below 2 years old can also swing around in these bucket seats.

On the other side, is a two storeys playground with slides, water buckets and water sprays. Hubby saw the photos and said this could easily give playgrounds like Port of Lost Wonder a run for it’s money and I fully agree.

Of course for parents who like to take this time to sit back and relax, there are benches around to do so. Otherwise, it’s perfectly fine to join in the fun with the kids in your swimwear too. I even saw a couple of hot mums in their bikinis joining their kids too!

We didn’t manage to check out the Lazy River beside the water playground but it looks a little too small for adults. Do note that there is an admission charge for the lazy river (S$2)  and you’re required to get your tickets at the OCBC Aquatic Centre (Level 1) Information Counter​.

For a water playground that doesn’t charge anything, I’m pretty impressed at how spacious this playground is, delighting both the young and younger tots. And I’m sure parents will appreciate that they have very thoughtfully provide bathing facilities, changing rooms and lockers all conveniently just a stone’s throw away.

But if waterplay is not your kids’s cup of tea, they can head to the playground at the far end.

    It’s very impressive for a FREE water playground! We really are lucky to have so many free and fun areas all around Singapore! We must go w Lil Pumpkin when it’s not too crowded :p

      Yes, we are lucky indeed to have so many of these free playgrounds around. We were there on a weekday but there were two cc having an excursion so it was pretty crowded. But I bet it gets more crowded on weekends.

    Amazing! How i wish kids all over would have access to experiences like that.

  3. Adora July 18, 2015 at 10:40 pm Reply

    It’s one of our favs too! Each time we go, we can easily spend 1.5-2 hours! I love that there are so many food options available too. What a fun idea for Sophie’s CC to bring the class there!

    • Susan July 20, 2015 at 1:19 pm Reply

      Yes it was a great idea to take the kids there. They enjoyed it so much and all took their nap in the afternoon 🙂

    Definitely one of my favourite water playgrounds! I can never understand why people pay for Port of Lost Wonder when they can come here for free. :p

      Haha that’s what Hubby commented too. Better than POLW!

    Can you believe me that I have never ever bring my kids to any water playgrounds in Singapore before. Yah lah…I also dunno what’s the reason that’s stopping me. But probably I should bring them out for a few hours of non stop water play one day!

    • Susan August 14, 2015 at 1:00 pm Reply

      Probably the hassle of bringing so much barang because that’s what’s usually on my mind. Plus I don’t want to get myself wet :p

    Hahaha Ntuc and daiso ^_^

    I’ve been wanting to make a trip down for this but never found an opportunity. Weekday would be best because I’d reckon weekends to be packed! Yet it’s so hard to handle a 3yo and 1yo at a water park alone. Sobs. Grow up soon children! (Yet, don’t grow up soon) mommy here is contradicting

    • Susan August 15, 2015 at 11:59 am Reply

      Yes go on weekdays if you can as weekends can be really packed especially when there are activities and events at the Sports Hub

    Hey let’s arrange a playdate there so the girls can enjoy the water playground! 😀 Btw where to park?

    • Susan August 15, 2015 at 12:04 pm Reply

      Sure! Can park at the Kallang Wave Mall itself. The kids can try rock climbing too.

  8. Waiwai August 14, 2015 at 8:24 pm Reply

    We haven’t been there yet! It seems to be a fun place for the children!

    Free and shoik! These water playgrounds comes in at the right time during this hot mid-year season in Singapore. Is there any shower room around the playground?

    Looks very good for a free playground! Is it very crowded? It is a good place to bring the kids here one day during the holidays 🙂

  11. Claudia August 14, 2015 at 11:02 pm Reply

    I must make time for this trip with my girls. I’m just lazy and afraid I can’t manage two wet girls on my own. Changing and getting them dry is a challenge when I’m alone.

    Water playground is my #1 favourite. And this is free! Too bad we live quite far from there.
