New community aquatic playground opens in Singapore

New community aquatic playground opens in Singapore
June 14, 2019

A free community aquatic playground, Oasis Waterpark @ Nee Soon East. has opened for children in Yishun in the north of Singapore.

Launched this week by Nee Soon GRC MP Louis Ng, together with about 1,000 residents, Oasis Waterpark @ Nee Soon East is located beside Block 307, Yishun Central, about 10 minutes' walk from Yishun MRT station and is open daily from 9am to 10pm.

The only community aquatic park that provides comprehensive family-oriented facilities in Singapore's heartland, it covers an area of 5,600 metre² and consists of three main zones of water play, including splashpads, a circular 3.5 metre-tall water curtain, giant boardgame pieces and a play pool that is suitable for children aged two to 12.

It also offers vending machines for drinks and ice cream, benches, shade umbrellas, showers and nursing rooms with hot water dispensers.

Opening the new attraction, Ng stated "we have spent the past few years working on this project and I'm so excited to finally open the water park.

"We will make sure Nee Soon East is not just a place you live in, but also a place where you can spend quality family time. I look forward to welcoming residents to the water park and having fun. It will be a place where you can create beautiful memories with your friends and family."

The aquatic playground cost $1.3 million to build, including the water feature playground, pavilion and lighting. Most of the funds came from the Community Improvement Projects Committee while the remainder was from the Nee Soon Town Council.

Oasis Waterpark @ Nee Soon East took about 10 months to construct.

Other water play areas in the neighbourhood include those at Sembawang and Choa Chu Kang.
