“Great - no, amazing - value for money for those with little kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

We saw this entry while looking for Wild Wild Wet - which was closed for renovations - and visits to Sengkang as well as Jurong West Swimming Complexes became the highlight of our Singapore vacation.

These are municipal swimming pools, but unlike most such pools I have known outside Singapore. Sengkang and Jurong (both East and West) have water slides, spraying fountains, a lazy river (at Jurong West, complete with inner tubes that can be rented) and a wave machine (Jurong East). They are amazingly cheap - 0.80S$ for kids, 1.50 for adults - compare that to 16.00 and 11.00 for Wild Wild Wet - yet well worth the visit.

The life guards are all over the place, and can be a bit draconian on enforcing slide height requirements. But heck, it's Singapore! And as a result the pools are clean, safe and lots of fun. Stop in, this might be the best deal you find to occupy the kids. And after a hot day exploring downtown or out at Sentosa, a visit to one of these parks can be a lovely end to the festivities.

“GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2011

This swimming complex is actually a public swimming pool, hence the entry fee is very inexpensive , like $1.50 for adults and $0.80 for children approximately. In there , there are water slides reminiscent of the old "BIG SPLASH" that existed back in the 80's along East Coast park. There are also shallow pools for toddlers to play in , as well as 2 olympic sized pools. Your kids will love this place, as it caters to both young and old. Just next to the complex is a Mcdonalds restaurant. Very convinient . To get there: Take the MRT to Sengkang station , and then hop on to the Sengkang LRT and the swimming complex is 50-100 meters from the LRT stop. If you plan to catch a cab from there, be prepared to wait a while because there are not many cabs that pass that area.
