9 Public Swimming Pools for Kids In Singapore with Entry Fees $2 and Below

With temperatures sky-rocketing above 33 degrees celcius in the past weeks, it seems the tropical heat is really getting to us. While jet setting away may not be the most practical solution, a good stand-in option is to take a nice, long dip in these pools.

While most of these options are public pools managed by ActiveSG, there are also some clubs which offer public access for their pools. We’ve put together a list of 9 public swimming pools for kids in Singapore – starting with the ActiveSG options!

ActiveSG Pools – Affordable Public Swimming Pools For Kids

Typically, the per entry pricing for ActiveSG Pools are quite consistent. Weekend pricing is $1 for children and $2 for adults while weekday pricing is $0.80 for children and $1.50 for adults.

Good news for you if you’re intending to be a regular – ActiveSG also has a MyActiveSWIM Scheme which allows for unlimited pool access across the island at only $5 per month for kids and $10 for adults.

There are maintenance closure days on a weekly basis – so those are days you’d want to avoid.
