SengKang Swimming Complex – Cheap Good and Fun (where to find?)
I think this must be one of the most well-kept secret for family fun in Singapore. A Wild-Wild Wet similar kind of water fun yet public swimming pool price!
Not many people actually know this place because it is so new (renovation is still ongoing outside the complex) and because it is “hidden” in a town where not many people will expect to find such treasure there. Unless you are living nearby or being told by friends, most likely many will not know this place. Ok… now you know, since I told you.
The Sengkang Swimming Complex is priced at normal public swimming pool admissions and like most normal swimming complex has its regular Olympic swimming lap pools (2 of them). On top of that, it has many additions that normal swimming complex do not have such as the winding tube slides, the roller coaster slides and water playground for toddlers and preschoolers (even adults love the water massages provided here).
The main attraction of the Sengkang Swimming Complex is unarguably the colorful slides. There are a total of 8 slides. On the right hand side, there are 2 slides for younger child with height under 1.2m. In the center, there are 4 slides similar to those in Big Splash and you require to have a minimum height of 1.2m to play. On the left hand side, there are 2 longer and higher tube slides for the brave ones. These tubes are dark and long and could be scary for younger kids. It is very exciting even for adults and require to have minimum of 1.2m. My kids love this slides so much that every time they come, they will play till their hearts’ content. The good news is that the queue is usually short and the waiting time is usually less than 1 min during the weekdays.
They even have a big Jacuzzi pool where 10 adults or more can dip in the pool. The Jacuzzi got 3 outlets per person: one for the lower back and 2 for each calf of the leg. Now you can enjoy a relaxing massage under the sun or moon.
Time spent: 2 hour or more
