What to Do This Weekend in Singapore, 9 & 10 April 2022
SAFRA Wheels & Feet Charity Challenge
Those who have signed up for the SAFRA Wheels & Feet Charity Challenge can start to clock their distances from this Saturday. The virtual event aims to raise funds for the President’s Challenge. You can choose to sign up as an individual or as a parent-child pair (or trio) to help raise funds by simply cycling, blading, running or walking. Get the details and sign up here if you wish to take part in this fun and meaningful challenge.
Pay a visit to Active Garden
Officially opened last weekend, Active Garden is a little outdoor community spot at Gardens by the Bay. It has a Musical Playground where kids and parents can have some fun together. While at Gardens by the Bay, enjoy the waterfront promenade and also pay a visit to Kingfisher Wetlands, if you haven’t already.
Hong Kong: Through The Looking Glass
Okay, it doesn’t look like we are going to be visiting Hong Kong anytime soon. So, why not take a look at some models of Hong Kong in miniature instead. There are 40 unique models that will give you the wanderlust. It may even inspire you to seek out dim sum or Nissin noodles and luncheon meat to satisfy your cravings. Find out more about this exhibition.
Hari Raya Light Ups
Head out to see the lights for Hari Raya and soak up the festive atmosphere. Two spots that you can do so are at Kampong Glam and Geylang Serai. These two places have bazaars going on but do expect to queue if you really want to get in. Get more details of the festivities at Kampong Glam and Geylang Serai.
St James Power Station Heritage Trail
Get upclose with a harpoon gun or a steam-powered crane on the St James Power Station Heritage Trail. Or book a visit to the cosy Heritage Gallery located within the west chimney. This simple trail is conveniently located just a footbridge away from VivoCity. Find out more about the St James Power Station Heritage Trail.
Play @ Heights Park
If you want to get out and don’t mind having a bit of splashing fun, you can check out Play @ Heights Park in Toa Payoh. There are also other playgrounds in Toa Payoh that you can check out including the swamp-inspired playground at Toa Payoh Crest or paying a visit to the iconic Dragon Playground.
