We initially went to Changi City Point, but when we reached there, to our surprise, the water wasn't switched on at full blast. It slowed down to a trickle periodically, and coupled with the blazing sun - made the ground literally baking hot. After barely ten minutes, we decided to call it a day, and look for another place instead.
BabyMoo has a breather from the heat with an ice-cold mug of Root Beer, dressed in his swim robe - while we search the net on our mobiles for another place to go.
I stumbled upon the 'Jurong West Aquatic Centre' located in the Jurong West Sports and Recreation Club, and we decided to head there after a quick lunch. (If you aren't familiar with the area, please use a GPS - because the roads can get confusing after awhile)
It's a huge, sprawling complex, and we saw many kids heading in for their swimming lessons.
BabyMoo got really excited at the entrance... and could hardly contain his glee while we purchased our entry tickets.
Being totally uninitiated about public pools now, we were not aware that we can actually use our EZ Link cards to gain access as well!
The water park was huge, and there was plenty of room even though there was a sizeable crowd there.
At this point, a lifeguard very nicely stopped me from taking pictures of the 'facilities', but I am welcome to take photos of family members. Ok... I wasn't aware of this, but I suppose the policy works on so many different levels.
BabyMoo took the slide down, and the lifeguard very kindly waited for him at the end of the slide, and made sure he didn't take a tumble into the water.
The current pool goes around the whole complex, and the float is really necessary. The undercurrent is strong, so please keep a watchful eye on the kids. The float is available for rent at $2.00, with a returnable deposit of $3.00.
BabyMoo wanted to slide down the big slide, but he's 1cm short of the minimum 1.2cm height. Daddy cannot ride tandem with him, so we had to convince him repeatedly that he will be able to slide down when he's slightly older.
