East Coast Park is a HUGE Park consists of 9 areas (from A to H) and suitable for family recreation, sporting, dining, kite flying, or even just for sightseeing. I just found out that this park has a total land size of 185-hectares and a scenic coastline that stretches over 15 km. So yes, it must be impossible to explore all areas of this park for us. After our last visit to Mozzino Pizza and Jurakids Land in another part of the park, this time we decided to explore the beach and the children playground.
We went to Castle Beach which is very suitable for the whole family, especially those with children. We saw a big sand castle which lil boy was not very interest to look at. There are also barbecue area, gazebos, food court, and sand playground. The water boy went straight to the beach to play with sand and water. It was a very hot day, but luckily we equipped ourselves with sunglasses and hat.
The nearest parking spot is E2 near the food court. We parked at E1 so we had to walk quite far to the beach. I do think it was a nice walk under the shade of trees, although lil boy complained that he was so tired and kept asking when we were going to see the beach.
Unfortunately, we couldn’t find any places to shower after the sand playing, but there are toilets in the park. Nearby shower facility should be added to this place (or maybe there is but we couldn’t locate it).
