Ever since I12 Katong opened, my friend who stays at Marine Parade has been raving about the water play area at its rooftop. She made it sound so good that I had to trot down all the way from the home in the far far North to check it out!
It was indeed as good as my friend made it out to be! Although there were water playgrounds much nearer to my home at Northpoint and Sembawang Shopping Centre, this playground was still worth the long travel all the way to Katong. MF absolutely LOVED this playground.
The first thing I spotted was this swing for toddlers. MF hated swings so we passed.
What MF loved was the slide. It was small enough for a little toddler like him to enjoy. But at the same time it was slippery enough to provide some awesome fun! (Warning: The slide was really very slippery so watch your little ones.)
And of course, there were all the usual water jets, and little buckets pouring water down once they are filled up. Along the perimeter of the playground, there were also some ‘musical instruments’ for kids to play with.
So head down to I12 Katong for some splashing fun for free! One thing to note though: There was no nursing room there. *grumble grumble*
