Why West Coast Park is special ?

West Coast Park an attractive public space with a large play area for children to amuse themselves. Good views out to the ships and decent paths for scooting. There are lots of squirrels and other wildlife in this park which makes it interesting. Nice large park with trees and flowers, great views of harbour, most interesting to long term visitors and residents.

What to explore at West Coast Park?

Adventure Playground

Dominated by a two-storey tall rope pyramid, the children’s playground at West Coast Park is one of the largest in Singapore. Billed as an adventure playground, it definitely lives up to its name and kids can expect to have a ball of a time here.

With multiple play areas, the playground’s different playscapes are tailored to children of varying ages. Kids, whether two or 12, can expect to have equal amounts of challenge and fun amongst the different play structures at the playground.

Some favourites include the rope pyramid, flying fox, crazy see-saw, rope ball and multiple obstacle courses.

The Grand Lawn

Adjacent to the playground, the Grand Lawn is sprawling open space where many kite enthusiasts set life’s worries afloat on a string. Giving kites a running start is a breeze on the spacious Grand Lawn, especially with the wind coming in from the coastline.

To the Waterfront

While many parents never get beyond the playground, those who do will discover that there is more to do at West Coast Park.

Near the water, a huge sandpit is the closest thing you will find to a beach at West Coast Park. Here, kids can perfect their sandcastle-making skills while parents wait under a nearby shelter.

The coastline is more breakwater than beach. A nice broad path and two small jetties provide views of the nearby port and offshore industrial islands.

West Coast Park’s Boardwalks

At the western edge of West Coast Park, a small river – Sungei Pandan Kecil – drains into the sea. This has created a little marshland reserve over which two short boardwalks have been built.

These boardwalks take explorers to the water’s edge. Be there at the right time and you may even be able to spot migratory birds stopping by for a rest.

Exploring the Park on Wheels

Even though welcoming bicycle paths criss-cross the Park’s landscape, there are no bicycle kiosks at West Coast Park. If you are looking to exploring the extensive park on two wheels, make sure you bring your own.

However, at the Eastern end of the Park, there is a pedal go-kart kiosk. You can rent anything from a one-seater to a four-seater go-kart and embark on your wheeled exploration of the Park.

A bicycle obstacle course located midway between the go-kart kiosk and the adventure playground provides an interesting sojourn for peddlers. It consists of wavy, meandering paths that rise and fall with the surrounding terrain.

Other Activities at West Coast Park

Barbeque pits can also be found near the pedal go-kart kiosk. Even with the looming containers from the port nearby, the greenery of the Park provides a lush carpet for an outdoor feast.

There are many activities for the kids, ranging from the kiddy to the more challenging spider web. A great place to bond with your children and help them to build confidence as they try out various activities. Some of these require adult supervision if the child is not an active and sporting one. There is a McDonalds next to it to RnR if you need to recharge. This place can be a bit crowded with the local kids especially after their term examination because some schools bring their students there. If this is a concern, you can check the Ministry of Education website for the term break. The last 2 weeks of the term is when the schools are done with their exams.

We'd planned a visit to West Coast Park's adventure playground as a way to explore the western part of Singapore. It sounded pretty good from reading other reviews on the web, however we thought the playground equipment wasn't up to the standard of similar-appearing Australian adventure playgrounds. None of the 4 flying foxes was operational (all had pulleys removed or damaged), the challenging climb to the slides up a scrambling net frame was great for our older child, but the humidity made the slides unslideable; lots of static equipment to climb over but generally not as coherent a playing experience. It's nice for the open spaces, and the view over the port; McDonalds on site tends to distract the kids, but there's a very good local food court about 10 minutes walk directly north of the park when you get hungry. We left the park after 15 minutes of aborted play, grabbed some food, and headed off to Jurong East to go swimming.So - its an OK park, probably good by Singaporean standards, but our 5 and 7-hr-old adventurers found it a bit boring.

Well this park had all what needs to make it a perfect destination. It had children rides and camping site. It also had play space for volleyball basketball and other sports. The most attracting part of it was the Harbor view. It gave a complete view-line of the shipyard and the sea facing view on the deck was just too awesome if you are with your partner its one the best free* Romantic spot you wanna go !!
