Wet And Wild @ Tampines 1

Even before getting to the roof top at Tampines 1, everything seemed to notify patrons about the newly opened water playground. We decided to stop for photos with some of the publicity posters before heading up.

The playground itself is narrow and longish and has a wet and dry section each. The dry sections have structures and toys for the young (5 years old and above) and the younger (2-4 years old).

The wet section is divided into two parts: the first is a north pole themed water slide and shallow pool for the older kids, and the other is a safari themed pad with fountains of different heights spouting out from the ground for younger kids.

We were there on a public holiday and it was crowded with families and people who just wanted an open space to enjoy the fresh air and fair weather that day. Even though all the benches were occupied, families made themselves comfortable by sitting on the dry boardwalk areas. There are kid sized toilet and shower facilities for the boys and girls with swinging doors so no one accidentally locks themselves in.

Overall, we felt that the playground here was more friendly to younger kids below five years of age compared to some of the other ones we have visited. There were many babies splasing around the fountain area in their rompers. The area is not very large, so it's easy to keep an eye on the young ones.

After the wet and dry playing, we headed to the foodcourt for a quick bite followed by a little shopping. Before we knew it, we had spent a good three hours at Tampines 1 and were ready to head home.

Definitely will return due to its proximity to our home, readily accessible food and beverage, and safe playing areas for younger kids!
