As the saying goes, time spent with family is always time well spent. One of the most family-friendly estates to check out is the beachside town of Pasir Ris. A go-to neighbourhood for families with young kids, we’ve gathered a list of things to do that’ll keep both the young and old in the brood entertained.
1. Have a splashing good time at Downtown East
Nothing’s better than spending a sunny day in a water park, especially one as fun and varied as Wild Wild Wet. A worthy contender to the tourist-y Adventure Cove, this water park offers thrilling slides, a super flume ride, a lazy river where you can float around blissfully on a buoy and more. With this many rides to choose from, you’ll be sure to find one that fits a pace you’re comfortable with.
2. Play with the kids at Pasir Ris Park
Pasir Ris Park is the perfect stomping ground for the little ones to play and run amok as they boast one of the biggest and most fun playgrounds around. The park also has plenty of room for you and your family to bond and catch some exercise such as cycling, rollerblading, camping – even maze running! Need a place to crash after a fun day out? Book a comfy chalet at the Civil Service Club @ LOYANG, located right on the outskirts of Pasir Ris Park.
3. Catch a fish at D’Best Fishing Pond
Located just opposite White Sands, this perennial late-night hangout has attracted fishing enthusiasts and families alike with its slew of convenient amenities on-site such as a bait shop, a fish-gutting station and even a few lowkey hawker eateries should you ever work up an appetite. Drop a line in Singapore’s only seawater pond and try your luck with catching a fish or two. There’s also a prawning pond for those not keen on the fishing scene.
4. Ride horses at the Gallop Stable
Ever felt the need to live out your equestrian fantasies for a day? Well since the adorable Gallop Stable opened its doors at Pasir Ris Park, you can! From pony rides for the little ones to full-grown horses for adult riders, the novelty of riding these four-legged creatures in Singapore will never get old. There are also other activities if you’re up for more horsing around such as feedings, trail rides, riding camps and more.
5. Dine by the beach at Georges @ The Cove
Wine and dine while soaking up tranquil beachside views at Georges @ The Cove, a laidback and breezy bistro with a menu that offers a mix of both Western and Asian cuisine. While the food is scrumptious – expect mains such as Beer Battered Fish and Chips and BBQ Pork Ribs – what draws in the crowds is the spectacular view of the beach. Whether it’s a family dinner or a catch-up soiree with friends, you’ll find it easy to chill-out and unwind. Interested? You can easily walk to this scenic bistro from Pasir Ris Park Carpark E.
