Two more weeks from September school holiday, and then 2.5 months of school days, and then after that will be the loooo……..ng school holiday before the boy goes to P3. We’ve been busy these days, and daddy has to go for business trips quite often (and that means there are only me and the boy at home), so we always try to go out on weekends and holidays. When we have no idea of where to go, the easiest thing to do is just to pack some food and toys and drive 10 minutes away from our house to Pasir Ris Park. Sometimes we just bring simple snack like biscuit or milk and water and go to the park. If we don’t bring enough water, we juts buy our favorite drink at the vending machine near the play area (there are many vending machines inside the park, usually near the toilet there is a vending machine).
Our favorite spot is Pasir Ris Park Playground. The nearest car park is car park E (pay 50 cents for every 1/2 hour), but the best thing is to park in car park F (because it’s free………….and only 5 minutes walking to the play area).
The boy said he wanted to bring his new ball (which we got from attending NTUC special event), and so with just a ball and a picnic basket…………we were ready to go………..
What I love from this playground is that it has many gazebos, big and small. We chose the small ones because there were only three of us. We sat on the mat so it would feel like real picnic, hahaha………
Yes, the obstacle challenge play area is totally opened by now! I think this playground has finished its renovation work, and all area is opened by now. If you go by bus, ride bus number 403 from Pasir Ris MRT and just look for the playground on the right side. The bus will make a U turn and go back to the interchange, and you must alight after the bus makes a U turn. This huge playground is really worth to visit.
In the west, there is West Coast Park Playground. In the east, we have Pasir Ris Park Playground. Both are big and children need to spend at least 2 hours to play. I like Pasir Ris Park Playground better because it has more shaded areas. There are many trees near the play area so it doesn’t feel so hot even though the sun is at the top of our head, and the most important thing is there is toilet facility near the playground.
After 2 hours of playing, we rushed to the car because looked like the rain was about to come. I really don’t understand the weather lately……………….hot sun then rain then hot sun again then the rain comes again……………….sometimes we just can’t plan where to go because of the unpredictable weather nowadays. But anyway, this newly renovated Pasir Ris Park Playground is really worth to visit.
