Jurong Play Grounds Has A Weekend Carnival & Dog Water Park
Westies may not have the expansive parks and seaside amenities that the East boasts, but we may have something that comes very close.
Jurong Play Grounds is the newest and largest lifestyle, family-friendly precinct just a 15-minute walk away from Jurong East MRT.
Here, families can bring their family and pets to the 355,000 square feet space full of large-space retail and activity concepts for families.
These include the country’s largest dog water park, a Padel tennis facility, a weekend carnival and a plant nursery wholesaler.
Asia’s largest dog water park has indoor & outdoor pools
Families in the West looking to fill a weekend don’t have to look any further than Jurong Play Grounds.
Spanning the space of approximately 5.6 football fields, this all-in-one retail cum lifestyle space has everything you need to spend hours of fun with your loved ones.
Firstly, paw parents who can’t bear to leave their furbabies behind would be glad to learn that Wag and Wild has set up Asia’s largest dog water park here.
With both indoor and outdoor spaces, pets and their families can get a healthy dose of sun and fun or splash around in the shade at the 19,000 square feet compound.
Once your dogs have had some fun in the water, you can head to Urban Paws for some aftercare.
Pampered pooches will be in the expert care of the many technicians here. As a holistic pet care facility, they also offer daycare, staycation and grooming services.
Kids can learn to swim in heated pools at Happy Fish Swim School
Pups aren’t the only whos who can enjoy water activities. Parents who want to kickstart their kid’s swimming journey can do so at Happy Fish Swim School.
As one of Singapore’s leading swim schools, this hub will feature an indoor, outdoor, and heated pool.
The pools are also larger so that coaches can provide a more extensive and immersive swimming experience for your children.

It’s not just all water-based activities. After all, not everyone is ready to go for a dip, even if the weather calls for it.
Those with a competitive streak would be glad to know that Uncle Ringo will be making regular appearances at the venue.
Bringing the carnival experience to the heartlands, Uncle Ringo’s carnival will run every weekend, from Fridays to Sundays, from 5.30pm to 10.30pm.
There will also be a specially designed Jurassic enclosure, with hyper-realistic animatronic dinosaurs for those young and aspiring archaeologists.
