Float My Boat

Float Your Boat at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park's Water Playground
Sharing is caring!

A roughly-folded paper boat set adrift in a roadside drain. A lazy afternoon on a pedalo drifting in tranquil waters. Activities reminiscent of a time where pleasures were far simpler.

Hankering to relive those days? Here are some cool spots that you can cast off from. Whether it’s sailing a boat, or sailing in one – you pick. Whatever floats your boat!

Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park Water Playground

Float Your Boat at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park's Water PlaygroundOpposite Block 223, Ang Mo Kio Street 22 

Springing from a source atop the gently sloping terrain and meandering through a series of varied channels, the never-ending flow of water makes this playground an ideal place to set your boat afloat. It’s an interesting one too – metal sluice gates and movable barriers allow kids to direct the water flow and experiment with the effect of obstacles on it.

Lower Seletar Reservoir Park Water Playground

Float Your Boat at Lower Seletar Reservoir Park's Water PlaygroundBounded by Yishun Avenue 1 and Lentor Avenue, Singapore 769139 

A simple playscape that leaves plenty of room for imagination. A shallow wading stream courses through undulating slopes, feeding, on one end, into a wading small pond and water jets in the ground. On the other end, two cheerful giant poppy showerheads provide relief on a hot day. This playground has both calm and slightly more tumultuous conditions for little boats.
