Fun for Free SG: Sembawang Shopping Centre Playground and Splash Area

There are a few shopping malls that we often go without going to Orchard or town. They are Causeway Point, Sembawang Shopping Centre and Northpoint. They have similar shops which are able to fulfil our needs. It is also important for us to select a mall with a playground or splash area for the kids to play and enjoy themselves after mealtime. Best of the deal is they are FREE to use!

We love to go Sembawang Shopping Centre on weekends as the free shuttle bus stop is just a few blocks away from us. There are also some shops which attracted me to go there often. Yes! My favourite is still DAISO. There are also GIANT, ASTON, Just Acia, Popular Bookshop just to name a few.

While I am busy shopping, the kids will not be restless at all. My hubby will bring them to Level 3 to play at the playground and splash area.


The dry and wet areas are just side by side

Here is the dry area which caters to kids.

And here is the splash area if your kids love getting wet! There is a shower area for the kids to change and shower without entering the mall's toilets.

Overall, the areas are pretty windy and fun to play. If you need nursing room, there is one at Basement 1.

Details:
Sembawang Shopping Centre might be out of the way as it is not very near to MRT station even though the nearest is Sembawang MRT station. (About 3 bus stops away.)

Fear not! There are FREE shuttle buses from Sembawang and Yishun MRT stations between 10am to 10pm everyday and also at certain Woodlands HDB areas on Friday, Weekends and Public Holidays. Here are the schedules leaving from the mall. If you are taking from the stations, you need to wait approximately 20-30 mins:

A copy of the schedule can be obtained from the Customer Service at Basement 1

Who's Next?

Lynn, from Raising Faith, is a (90%) SAHM to an almost 2-year-old active girl. When schedule allows, she bakes for friends and teaches in a cake decorating school. For most part of the time, she is busy trying to get her little one to be engaged in the activities that she has designed for her. She will be sharing her review on Animal Resort. It will certainly be interesting for us too as we have never been there before.
