Yishun Has A Waterpark Located Within The Heartlands

The other day, I was playing a game of ‘human personification’ with my friend, Ah Kow.

“How would you describe Choa Chu Kang as a person?” I casually asked him.

“Well… I would describe CCK as a secluded misfit who leads a rather boring lifestyle,” he replied.

“I’m not asking you to describe me you twat.”

“Well, you do live in Choa Chu Kang.”

Flashing him the middle digit, I went on with my second question.

“Well, how about Yishun?”

He paused. I smirked.

He lives in Yishun. 

“Hmm…” he started.

“If I had to describe Yishun as a person, I would say that Yishun’ll be that odd kid in class who’s always experimenting with weird stuff.”

I nodded. Sounds about right.

Ah Hock loved Michelle and asked her, ‘Ai stead mai?’ in the 90s. Today, he tried again but would it work? Prepare some tissue paper and watch their love story here:

“But Yishun won’t just be the queer kid,” Ah Kow continued.

“Amaze me,” I challenged him.

“Yishun will be a pretty fun individual who loves to make kids wet too.”

I paused. He smirked.

“Did you just reveal your fetish, Tan Ah Kow? You do know that that’s illegal right? Like really illegal?

“No, you twat, I’m saying that because Yishun Has A Waterpark Located Within The Heartlands.”

I paused. He paused.

“I’m still gonna call the cops.”

“**** NO!”

The Launch Of A Large Community Park In The North Of Singapore

According to Straits Times, there’s a new community water park up in the North, and apparently, it’s pretty darn big.

Oasis Waterpark, as it’s termed, was officially launched two days ago (8 June) by Nee Soon GRC MP Louis Ng, in a move that involved some 1,000 residents.

The water park, that’s located beside Block 307, Yishun Central is accessible within a 10 minutes’ walk from Yishun MRT station.

And lest you’re wondering, it’s entirely free for the public and opens daily from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Yes, folks, this is an entirely budget-friendly exercise.

Comprehensive family-oriented facilities

The water park comes with an area of 5,600 sq m, and consists of three main sectors of water play, including a circular 3.5m-tall water curtain as well as giant boardgame pieces.

The play pool’s reportedly suitable for children aged two to 12.

Additionally, there are vending machines for drinks and ice-cream, benches, shade umbrellas, showers as well as nursing rooms with hot water dispensers.

According to the Nee Soon East constituency office, it’s the only community park that provides actual, comprehensive family-oriented facilities in the heartland.

“We have spent the past few years working on this project and I’m so excited to finally open the water park.

“We will make sure Nee Soon East is not just a place you live in, but also a place where you can spend quality family time. I look forward to welcoming residents to the water park and having fun. It will be a place where you can create beautiful memories with your friends and family.”

For those wondering about the little intricacies, the water park reportedly cost $1.3 million to construct, including the water feature playground, pavilion and lighting.

Majority of the funds came from the Community Improvement Projects Committee, while the remainder hails from the Nee Soon Town Council.

According to reports, the water park took roughly 10 months to construct.

Other water parks in the neighbourhood

If Yishun’s too far (or too ‘ominous’) for you to contend with, however, worry not;

There are other mini water parks to visit too, including those at Westgate and Bugis Junction.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some cops to call.

“You can’t call the cops on me, sucka,” Ah Kow taunted.

“Pray tell me, why not?”

“Because Choa Chu Kang has a mini water-park as well, and you know what that means.”

I paused. He smirked.

“But yours is probably bigger. Your water park,” I retorted.

He paused. I smirked.

“But it’s still wet-”
