It's a given that Singapore is one of the ultimate destinations for business-minded people. A central business hub in Asia, the city-state has long been one of the powerhouses in the region. People from all around the world travel or even move here just to climb up the corporate ladder. With that in mind, however, what about the kids? Surely if you're moving here, you'll have to bring along your little ones, right? Will Singapore be as exciting for them as it is for you and your career? The answer is yes! The city still has a good number of places where they can have fun, after all!
Westgate is one of the biggest malls in Singapore, and that's already saying something! Since it's easy to get to via public transport, it's become one of the city's most visited shopping centers in the past few years. And it helps that it contains a healthy mix of affordable and luxury brands on offer. But kids won't care about that! They want to have fun! So why not bring them on the largest rooftop playground in all of Singapore, 'Wonderland!' With gigantic flowers and animals transformed into slides, playhouses, and the like, even Alice herself won't want to leave the place!
West Coast Park
While Westgate Wonderland is the largest rooftop playground in Singapore, West Coast Park, on the other hand, has the biggest outdoor playground in the city-state! With a Viking ship feature, a tall pyramid of rope ladders, and a few slides to boot, it's no surprise why a lot of kids would love going here. And the place is so big, even you can join in on the fun! Not necessarily in climbing up the various features in the playground, but rather, playing a game of football with your kids, perhaps? Or chasing after your toddlers in a game of tag! The possibilities are endless!
Tiong Bahru Park
From the outset, Tiong Bahru looks like a very boring place, far from what your kids would regard as 'fun.' However, the nearby park is a different story entirely. Here, a tilted mini-train awaits those with fervent imaginations to play all sorts of games around it. Your son can pretend he's the conductor and get all the 'tickets' from the other kids. Your daughter can play a madame on her way to see the world. While your babies? They'll just love the train as it is and won't care what they're pretending as! As long as they all have fun, nothing else matters!
Marine Cove Playground
Located along the Eastern Coast of the city-state, Marina Cove is one of the more relaxing parts of Singapore. It's a good distance away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and definitely far from the corporate world
too! Though the serenity in this area is what would draw you to come here, it's the playground in this park that will have your kids enjoying the place. Swings, slides, and rope climbing features await your little ones as you try to relax in this seaside paradise. Hopefully, you're allowing them to spend countless hours playing here will lessen the tantrums for the day!

Jurong Lake Gardens
Another natural paradise that awaits the entire family is Jurong East, a residential area in Singapore
. The park here, the Jurong Lake Gardens, is a stunning oasis of botanical bliss, making it such a beautiful escape from the more urban parts of the city. Though let's face it, the flora and fauna aren't what your kids will pay attention to when you go here. It's the zip-line that can allow them to zoom from one part of the park to another. Or the sunken trampoline that will have then jumping for joy for hours on end. Or, perhaps, the wooden climbing frames that look straight out of a jungle!
Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden
Unbeknownst to many, the Jacob Ballas Childen's Garden is actually the first park of its kind in Asia. An entire natural oasis awaits kids, complete with a farm, an orchard, and, of course, a garden. Add to that the small forest and stream that look straight out of a fairytale! But when it comes to playtime, it's the playground that the kids will focus on. A treehouse with a rope ladder, all types of slides, even a zip-line too! Talk about an adventure playtime! By the end of the day, your kids will be so tired, they'll fall asleep in the car!
Finally, if your kids are huge fans of slides, they'll love Admiralty Park the best! A whopping 26 slides await your little ones, each rendered in bright hues, all squiggly and quirky and fun! Some are just small, perfect for your toddlers who might need you to hold their hands as they slide down. While others are a mind-boggling 34-meter long! In fact, a good number of the slides here can rival any of the city's best waterparks! That's how amazing a playground it is. And, of course, if they get tired of sliding down, climbing structures, swings, and. sandpit are all on offer as well!
While Singapore is a major business hub for adults, it's a whole collection of fun play areas, parks, and playgrounds for your kids! You'd do well in bringing them to any or all of these wonderful places on the weekends or when you have a free day off!
It's no secret that Singapore also has a ton of luxury homes
