Fun for Free SG: Tampines 1 Water Playground

August 13, 2014

National Day Blog Train Hosted By Gingerbread Mum

Located conveniently next to the MRT station and bus interchange, the rooftop wet playground at Tampines 1 is one of our favourite places to go to have some free wet and wild fun!

Many a time, I’ll bring them there to have some fun after school while waiting for Sean to join us for dinner. The cool evening is just perfect for some play before dinner, if you ask me!

There are also areas that are suitable for dry play. More often than not, these areas will be wet too. So don’t be surprised by any of it, ok? The children will all just basically run all over the place to have fun! Haha!

Even when they do start out with playing only at the dry areas, you can be sure that in no time, they’ll be all soaked.

Tired and cold, but still want to play
Psst… They weren’t dripping wet anymore

Some additional information:
– The area is closed for washing on Monday mornings (opened only in the afternoon)
– There is one handicap toilet with a changing table for toilet needs
– There are changing rooms with showers, but please note that the water is cold. There’s no heater!
– Seats are available all around, some with accompanying table
– Drink vending machines are available at the lift lobby

The water playground at Tampines 1 is located conveniently next to Tampines MRT station (East-West line aka the green line), and a short walking distance from the Tampines Bus Interchange. There are plenty of parking spaces available in the area but sometimes, the overwhelming weekend crowd could mean a long wait.
