After a 2-year hiatus, Marine Cove resumed operations with the unveiling of its new look and offerings to the public in end June this year. The opening of the revamped recreational enclave has given families another well-grounded reason to hang out at East Coast Park. Boasting family-friendly facilities, more car park lots, a mega playground, and a variety of eateries, it’s no wonder Marine Cove is set to win the hearts of everyone in the family!
Spanning across 3,500 sqm, this marine-themed playground contains play elements like a 8m tall tower (modelled after a lighthouse) and climbing net courses. It also includes elements that cater to children with special needs. Children of all ages, and perhaps even some adults, can definitely play to their hearts’ content! Check out the other features of the playground here.
Families can satisfy diverse taste buds with the variety of restaurants available - from Indian-Muslim to Peranakan. Not forgetting the fast food icon, MacDonald's, which is back with a new look and additional gourmet options. You can check out other mouth-watering food options at Marine Cove here.
With Marine Cove just a stone’s throw from the other parts of East Coast Park, fun need not be limited to just within Marine Cove. Families can extend their fun time to the slew of other activities in East Coast Park, such as:
- The beach. With the sand, sea and sun, it’s more than enough to keep everyone happily occupied. Parents, while your children are playing, you can also slip in some romantic moments by enjoying a gorgeous view of the sunset together.
- Physical activities, like cycling and rollerblading. Lug your own or conveniently get them from the rental kiosks.
- Camping. Open the invitation to your extended family for a time of celebration, or just simply to hang out together! Chalets, equipped with the necessary facilities and BBQ pits, are available for booking, or if you are the more adventurous sort, opt to pitch your tents by the beach. For information on tent-pitching, find out more from NParks.
Oh, and did you know that come October 2016, East Coast Park’s 40-year-old landmark, Big Splash, will be closed for good? Reminisce with Big Splash here.
