West Plains @ Bukit Batok is one of many “West _” estates in Bukit Batok, which include West Rock, West Terra and the list goes on. After spending some time visiting the many “Wests”, we found the West Plains playground to be the best. However, we also highlight of the other play spots around the Hong Kah North neighbourhood where kids and families can have some fun.
West Plains Playground
West Plains @ Bukit Batok is located next to Le Quest shopping mall. Amongst the various housing apartment blocks, the West Plains playground consists of two play sections – one with high elements and another with lower play equipment.
Towering in the air are three brown huts with green roofs, interconnected by a series of rope bridges.
This West Plains playground offers barrels of fun for kids – literally. In addition to the tower playground, there are two brown faux-wooden barrels which kids can climb into.
There is also tall play structure is shaped like a set of barrels, along with other rope play element at the West Plains playground.
Younger children are not forgotten either. The section of the playground with lower play elements include slides, swings and a conical-shaped rope merry-go-round.
Amazingly, there is more to look forward to at West Plains. A second playground, with slides and more climbing structures is currently in the works. It looks like the playground at West Plains @ Bukit Batok will just be plain fun!
West Terra @ Bukit Batok
Around the Hong Kah North neighbourhood, another notable play spot is the playground at West Terra @ Bukit Batok. This neighbourhood playground features some interesting play features like a red two-person swing, suspended on a green frame.
In another section of the West Terra playground, a blue seated merry-go-round can accommodate up to five kids at a time!
West Valley @ Bukit Batok
Another pocket of play can be found at West Valley @ Bukit Batok. This playground has a rope climbing frame, slope with handholds, slide and an “old-school-ish” see saw. The see saw even has rubber tires at the base – just like the good ole days!
Nearby is a house-shaped play area.

Roof Gardens at Hong Kah North
A last point about the Hong Kah North estate – there are plenty of roof gardens to explore, located above the multi-storey car parks. Not only do they offer some green relief in the sky, but you may also come across some hidden play spots too!
