It’s been a long while since I last share on the awesome playground in the East: Pasir Ris Park Playground. Now it is the turn for the equally awesome and huge playground in the West: West Coast Park Playground! It really caters for everyone: children, teenagers, adults and elders. Come here for the Play Area, to Skateboard, Roller Skate, Cycling, Frisbee, BBQ, Bird Watching, Kite Flying, Jogging or just a leisure walk to relax and chat. I am so proud of Singapore’s fun and free places to bring our kids to and perfect places for multi-generation bonding. You really cannot miss this one!
Let’s see what are the fun activities to be found here that Pasir Ris Park doesn’t have or have but slightly different.
Zipline Flying Fox
Who can resist this one? When we were there, there were parents on both sides who took turns to help the children to climb onto the tyre and give them a little push to zip across to the other side. It is an unspoken teamwork and all parents who were there were happy to help ensure safety of all the children. I see gracious parents here and such gestures create a happy playtime for everyone.
There are many balancing fun for the children here. All in different levels of challenges. No wonder my kids went again and again to perfect them. Some may be too challenging for little ones. Like my toddler, who definitely needed some help and his elder siblings were happy to go through the obstacle for the nth time. That is the best part with 5 years difference in age, the older ones can help the young sibling while the mummy relaxes and take photos happily at the side.
Web Climbing Play
This is a MUST-HAVE in every big playground! My 3yo can climb all the way to the top and slides down the tallest slide. Well, of course, with help from Daddy. The elder siblings are not tall enough to assist the toddler by themselves. The 3yo is a daredevil. I remembered that his elder siblings were not so comfortable in heights at his age.
A mini size one…
I am not sure what to term this long and flexible structure that can take multiple kids at the same time. I certainly saw this for the first time! It looks like a see-saw. Indeed, it is very fun and moves up and down with the option of sitting or even lying down.
The below obstacle seems difficult. One has to climb up the rope against gravity to the top. It is not so popular with the kids though.
Play Area for younger children
This area is cater for younger children where they can play sand and climb the low ladder to the pirate ship.
There are many swings similar to the one in Pasir Ris Park and a long queue for them. Over at the other side, there is a big field to play frisbee or ball games.
We will certainly be back here, though not that frequent since we do not live in the West. I will recommend this place for the kids at least once in your kids’ childhood if you have never been here.
