Playground @ IMM

Many do not know but there is a large playground (with waterplay features!) on level 3 of IMM. It is outdoors and you can exit near Long Beach restaurant or Hai-Di-Lao.

The best thing is though outdoors, the playground is sheltered so the kids can play even when there is a light drizzle.


There are sections of the main play area that are suitable for both the younger kids and the older kids. The purple slide (in the first pic) is actually very high. So parents do need to be around to ensure safety of the younger ones.

Right beside this play area there is also a waterplay area. This area though is not sheltered so it can be pretty hot in the daytime.


The waterplay area’s water is turned on at certain timings of the day. So do not expect to go early before it gets hot. The water sprays only turn on at 10am. Not sure why they made it that way. The first time we were there at 9am only to be disappointed that the water has not started yet. Here are the opening hours:

Monday to Friday: 10.30am to 9.30pm (Closed every Thursday from 7.00pm onwards for events and on the first Wednesday of every month, except PH for maintenance)

Saturday and Sunday: 10.00am to 9.30pm

There is also a shower area at the playground. So it is very convenient if the kids were to play at the waterplay area.

VivoCity Children’s Playground

VivoCity’s 2nd floor outdoor children’s playground have been closed for renovation for some time now. We always drop by to check if it has opened every time we are there and recently it was open! 


Some things remain the same but overall it has been revamped. The water play area is totally different now. 


There is a trampoline area which is new. The slope that was from the previous playground is still there but they added a proper slide to it. 

There is some addition of new playground structures very similar in style to the old playground. The kiddy car rides vendor is still there and the other part of the playground next to it is still undergoing renovation. 


The highlight for us as usual is the waterplay area. Just remember to bring some extra clothes and toys for the kids to play!


At the end of the day if you want to, the nursing/diaper change room is just nearby next to QB kids and world of sports. You can find out more about the nursing room here

Lastly, and best of all, here’s what it becomes in the evening. 🙂

Diggersite @ East Coast Park

Our first activity for the Long Labour Day weekend is to go to the Diggersite!! We have been wanting to bring our boy there as he is a BIG fan of excavators, bulldozers, cranes, etc. 

We had a little trouble finding the place as we didn’t know exactly which part of ECP it was at. Here’s what we found out. Look out for the carpark with Long Beach restaurant and Burger King. You will see the Diggersite once you turn into the carpark. 


They have an indoor area and an outdoor area. Head to the indoor area to purchase your tokens. 1 token for $7, 3 for $18 or 10 for $50. 


At the indoor area as well where you purchase the tokens are 2 excavators and you get to play “toy catcher” with them. You also get to choose your helmet and vest and suit up for your hard labour coming up!


Outside is a small tentage with one stand alone digger where you can practice knocking down bottles. 

And then there is the main outdoor area with 3 excavators to dig sand. Good thing is that all are shaded though it can still be pretty hot in this sweltering heat. 


This is what the kids come for. To dig sand like a real construction worker!

Kallang Wave Mall – Playground

Have you been to the new Kallang Wave Mall that it at the new Singapore Sports Hub? There is a FREE water-play area for the kids at the rooftop and it is HUGE!!

There are 4 slides in all with different levels of difficulty. The orange one as shown in the picture is the largest one they have.

IMG_7082

This is where the smaller slides are. They are essentially at the same play structure.

IMG_7084

Here’s a small swimming pool  where a lifeguard watches over and some water-play area for the toddlers

IMG_7080

Here’s a clearer and closer view of the toddler area.

IMG_7092.JPG

There is a really good view here too! Grandparents will just sit there and chat while the kids play and the parents watch over them.

IMG_7085

The Bub took a really long while to warm up. He was so satisfied just sitting there with his water-play cups (we bring those along all the time for water-play!) and splashing at the toddler area.

He decided only to try out the slides when we were about to leave. and he tried all 4 levels of the slides! His catalyst was meeting a friend at the playground. And she was really daring so Bub followed along. (I, however have kept my phone already so no pictures at the slides.)

Coincidentally, we went by the playground again one week later and he met the same friend! 🙂

IMG_7199

So I managed to snap some pictures of him coming down the slides 🙂 These are the Level 1 and 2 slides. The blue one is Level 3 and the Orange slide is the scariest!

On the other side of the rooftop is a lazy river. (That is not so exciting for the kids). But you can always pop by there to have a look. 🙂

The Bub keeps asking, when can we go to Kallang Wave Mall again?

Children’s Playground @ West Coast Park

West Coast Park (the McDonald’s side) has been undergoing renovation for some time. It is complete now and we like to frequent the place with our toddler. It is a big place with many options of what he might want to do there, there is free parking, and you can always go to Macs.

Here are some of the options. Will let the photos speak for themselves 🙂

This is the toddlers area where there are bucket-seat swings and a small-scaled slide.

IMG_5997

There are little sand pits for the little ones to play in too. But they are elevated from the ground so got to watch them closely for this.

IMG_5998

This area is suitable for toddlers or even those below 1. There are activity panels around and a school bus for them to sit in.

IMG_6001

Here’s where the slightly older kids go.

IMG_5999Play area for the older kids.

IMG_6005

This is a highlight for many kids. The flying fox! There are 4 of it so there no need to wait too long to have a go. 🙂

IMG_6004

Another highlight for the older kids. and maybe adults too, is the spider web! Good thing about this spider web is when you have climbed up either halfway or right to the top, you can take the slide all the way down. You won’t have to climb back down!

IMG_6543

You would probably have noticed. Most of the playground is covered in sand, which is very rare for playgrounds now. So whenever you go there, do remember to bring your sand toys. We have one set stashed in the car for this very purpose. So we can pop by the park anytime we want.
