Jurong is a huge estate, extending from the cluster of malls around Jurong Gateway Road on one side to Nanyang Technological University at the other end. With an area this large, is should not be surprising that there are a wide range of Jurong playgrounds that kids can enjoy. We round up some of the best Jurong playgrounds that west-siders should know about.
Jurong Playgrounds for West End Fun
Taman Jurong Park
Taman Jurong Park is home to a “play curl” where kids can escape into its unique structure and explore its various passageways. There’s also another playground for younger kids at the same park. Find out more about Taman Jurong Park.
Close to Taman Jurong Park is the Airplane Playground. The steel structure, shaped like a jet plane, is great for a picture or two as kids pretend to fly away at this Jurong playground. Get more details here.
Beside the Jurong Regional Library is a little play area with some interesting looking hillocks. The J-Link playground could be just what you need for some simple fun. Find out more about the J-Link playground.
Jurong East Tower Playgrounds
There are several elevated tower playgrounds in the Jurong East area too. Jurong East Street 24 has a playground with towers, connected by bridges, that kids can use to test out their scaling abilities. Another can be found at Jurong East Street 32 as well.
While at Jurong East Street 24, you can also check out an ant and ladybird playground.
The Westgate Wonderland shopping mall playground reopened on 12 September 2022. Pay a visit for that Alice in Wonderland feel.

Waterworks at Science Centre Singapore
The Waterworks exhibition at Science Centre Singapore offers visitors a chance to splash about and cool down from the heat. Get more details here.
Just beside Yuhua Community Club is a small neighbourhood playground with rope obstacles and a climbing boulder. It is looking a bit weathered and used to have a bouncy trampoline but, alas, it seems to be damaged when we last visited it in September 2022.
There is a nicer one for young kids on the other side of the Community Club at Block 210.
The playground equipment at Jurong Spring includes a vertical playground as well as orange netted structure for kids to climb about. Toddlers are not left out either as they have a small playground surrounded by hedges. Find out about the Jurong Spring playground.
