Playgrounds are the great, big fun. And, if you are looking for a super-duper park playground in Singapore, they don’t come much bigger or better than the West Coast Park Playground.
The West Coast Park Playground is really made up of several different playgrounds, filled with equipment suitable for children as young as two years old. It has something for every child and is perfectly located at the lush greenery of West Coast Park.
Here’s our ultimate guide to Singapore’s West Coast Park Playground and its play zones.
Pyramid Play Zone, West Coast Park Playground
NINJA CHALLENGE: Bring your A-game for a Day of Sporty Fun at this Mall
The towering climbing pyramid is an iconic feature of the West Coast Park Playground. Its red ropes are strung over a blue frame. Kids who make their way to the top are rewarded by a slide down to the sandy ground below.
We’ve seen plenty of parents on the pyramid too, helping their kids navigate their way up the web of hexagonal spaces that make up the structure.
Next to the pyramid, kids can make their way across wooden balancing beams.
Kids can hop along round platforms which leads to a climbing sphere.
This climbing sphere makes a good “training camp” for kids before they summit the pyramid.
Zip Line Play Zone
Beside the Pyramid play zone is the Zip Line play area. This is dominated by a row of four zip lines stretching out across the sandy playground. Kids can climb up a platform, jump onboard a seat and jet across the playground.
There is also a green, yellow, purple and orange obstacle course here. It starts off with a set of yellow ladders, followed by rope netting, balancing log, more rope obstacles, tunnels and so on. It is great fun for young kids.
Other fun play equipment here include a “hang-on” merry-go-round.
Viking Ship Playground
Dominated by a brightly coloured Viking Ship play structure, this play area is also where you find the one of the set of swings at West Coast Park playground.
There are also play panels here, next to the Viking Ship.
Toddler Play Area
Designed for kids as young as two, the toddler play area is a location to invoke their senses. There are panels where they can turn wheels, a red fire truck see-saw for them to play on and suggestions for a scavenger hunt.
There is also a low play structure, designed as a boat where kids can also have some fun in the sand. This is suited for younger kids who may also want to enjoy climbing and slides.
West Coast Park Nature Playgarden
For kids to engage in simple play and reconnect with nature, West Coast Park has a nature playgarden. This is made up of a series of logs laid out in a circle where kids can skip and hop around in the sand.
From toddler spots to adventurous challenges, West Coast Park Playground is a perfect place for a fun-filled day as a family or for an awesome big group outing.
