• West Coast Park

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Beauty News -

Un­like East Coast Park, its west-side coun­ter­part is less crowded and messy, with neat patches of open greens, cy­cling and jog­ging paths, and play­grounds. One length of the lin­ear park looks out over the sea, and while there’s no sandy beach, the flat-rocked water­front makes an ideal spot for fish­ing and watch­ing the sun­set. In­stead of a bi­cy­cle rental shop, you’ll find a go-kart kiosk. Th­ese pedal carts come in one-seater and four-seater va­ri­eties, and make ex­plor­ing the park easy, es­pe­cially for tiny tots.

Make a stop at the Ad­ven­ture Play­ground – the grassy perime­ter is well-shaded so you can un­roll a mat and rest while your kids ex­haust them­selves on the two-storey-tall rope pyra­mid, fly­ing fox and kiddy rides. Also check out the western end of the park, where chil­dren can run along rope-fenced board­walks right next to the edge of a mini marsh­land re­serve with­out fear of fall­ing in.

More ad­ven­tur­ous fam­i­lies can ap­ply for a camp­ing per­mit from Na­tional Parks Board be­fore­hand as there’s a field in the mid­dle of the park for campers to pitch a tent – it’s quiet and breezy, but not so se­cluded that you’ll feel un­safe. OPEN­ING HOURS Open 24 hours daily.
