“A Typical Singapore Swimming Complex... With Added Fun”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Not sure if any tourist would actually visit this pool.. But anyways, my 2 cents for people who hope to visit... To get there, you have to take the MRT to Sengkang Station on the NEL, change to a LRT to Farmway.. It is a 5 minutes walk from there....

Well the slides are better than Adventure Cove for sure... no queues and just as fast...

Swimming Complex has 1 Olympic size pool.. the slides, 1 indoor pool, 1 small "jacuzzi", a shallow pool with slides for kids and 1 more shallow pool... lots of options for $1.50/- on weekday and $2/- for weekends...

Weekends do get very crowded... and the reason is because of the above.

“Great pool”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Awesome pools & waterslides - but the 1.2m height requirement for slides is rigorously enforced, so beware if you have slightly undersized children!

“Swimming Activities”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

The location of the swimming pool was a mini swamp in yr2004 when it was accessible to explore with my then 8months son. My husband loves the surrounding way before the Anchorvale Swimming Complex was built.
We love the surrounding, the river, the greeneries, the chirping of birds and breeze.
The location of this swimming pool is just perfect for that relaxing environment. =)

“Awesome”
Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

I have noticed this place being a great bonding area for families with children. I note that the slides, pools, practically everything is enjoyable and I see complete strangers making friends with with one another. I guess this is where we kill off worries and get more people on our "Friends" list. Obviously, there would be more contact numbers springing up in this place.

“Sheltered pool, fun twisted slides”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

Singapore offers an awesome deal with these public swimming complexes for a mere dollar or two for the entire day. There's about 20 of them and the Sengkang one is my favorite by far.

It is far from the city center, but easy to reach. Hop onto the purple NE line to the Sengkang stop. Don't leave the station to the bus interchange like I did. The LRT is still within the gates, three escalator rides up. Take it two stops to Farmway. Once there, take Exit B and you should see "Anchorvale Community Club" ahead a few hundred meters. Pass the McDs and you'll be at the entrance of the Sengkang Sports and Rec Centre.

It was almost like a water park. There are multiple slides - fun for adults and kids! The twisted slides were surprisingly fun even for me. There's a small area to tan on lounge chairs if you dare to bear the sun. There's a cute water playground area for kids with slides and fountains and an enormous bucket of water on top that splashes everyone below whenever it fills.

Best of all, there's a sheltered pool where you don't have to be in the sun during the day. It's not as long as the competition pool, I don't think, but still plenty long enough to swim laps. It's shallow so there are tons of kids in there, but better than being burnt. The competition pool is partially shaded but I wouldn't risk it unless it's cloudy or evening time.

Don't wait in line for the shower at the sheltered pool (only 5 showers) if there is one. The other bathroom outside the kids playground has almost 20 showers. The lockers are 40cents for every two hours. The lockers are standard at all the swimming complexes I've been to, but not all of them have these other features - the water slides, sheltered pools, mini water park. If you google "public swimming complex singapore", you'll easily find a list of all the pools and what each location offers.

I'd recommend going during weekdays and not during school holidays. It can get very crowded sometimes, so go early or go late to avoid hordes of kids.

Don't forget your sunblock! :)
