Anyone else been feeling the heat recently? If you are looking for somewhere to take your child where he or she can cool off and have some fun at the same time, how about paying a visit to a water playground in Singapore.
Water playgrounds offer a place to get away from the heat with the added bonus of some simple and fun distractions. And water playgrounds do not necessarily need to be those with slides and fountains. Some of these offer other types of play opportunities with sluice gates and more.
Here are some water playgrounds in Singapore where you can cool off. Unfortunately, many of the water playgrounds, especially those in shopping centres, are still closed. However, here are some that are open again.
