Want to beat the scorching heat and burn away calories? Or maybe you’re just looking for a chill spot for your next gathering? Then head to these swimming pools in Singapore that promise to keep you cool and occupied with the number of activities for everyone!

Pro Tip: Before heading down, check out their respective pages for maintenance information and a complete list of available facilities. This will prevent disappointment should any of the facilities be closed!

1. Choa Chu Kang Swimming Complex

From a wave pool to a children’s playground, a competition pool and even a smaller pool for little ones, Choa Chu Kang Swimming Complex has them all! If you’re planning for a family trip, there’ll be things to do for everyone!

The best part? If you’re someone that enjoys relaxing, there’s a mini lazy river for you to float around in, and even a spa pool that’s great for water jet massages!

Pro Tip: Bring your own floats as they don’t do float rentals! Alternatively, you could purchase them at the swimming or sports store right outside the swimming pool. Take note that floats are not allowed on the giant slide.

2. Jurong East Swimming Complex

For all Westies, Jurong East Swimming Complex is one of the more popular public swimming pools in Singapore, and for good reason. Fully equipped with many facilities and attractions, it’s second only to the various established water parks in Singapore! It’s also a (significantly) cheaper alternative to the pricier water parks!!

You can look forward to three huge slides that’ll get your adrenaline pumping, a decently long lazy river for you to float along, and even a huge wave pool! Two of the slides require a large float (which makes the ride even more thrilling), that are available for rent for a small fee. The floats are also great for chilling on as you drift along the lazy river or fight the currents in the wave pool!

There is also a children’s play area for the little ones, that’ll be the highlight of their day!

Pro Tip: After putting your bags in the locker, ensure you have some spare cash to rent the floats!
