If you ask me, I think every shopping centre should have a playground.   Very often when we’re trying to decide where to go with the kids, we find ourselves making a decision based on whether or not there is a playground for kids there.  Which is why we may stay in the North of Singapore, but we visit Westgate (in the West) quite often.  Because to date, I think Westgate’s playground is the most awesome among all shopping centre playgrounds.

But of course, even with the best playground, we don’t go to Westgate and only Westgate.   Sometimes we only have a couple of hours and we just want to go to a shopping centre near our home.   We used to go to Northpoint.  But the playground is under renovation now because they are building Northpoint City (woohoo!).  So we go to Sembawang Shopping Centre.  Or Causeway Point.  Or even Waterway Point.  Why do we hardly ever go to AMK Hub? Because there’s no playground there.  (Or at least no free ones.  There is eXplorerkid, but we reserve that for Members’ Mondays.  #cheapo)

Let’s have a look now at which are the family-friendly shopping centres that have dedicated some of their expensive floor space for the enjoyment of our kids.
