A sunny day spent at the beach with a Mr.Coconut in hand sounds nice. But sometimes, you just want to strap on some sturdy shoes and hit a hiking trail.
Well, guess what? That stroll can be found at Admiralty Park along with an enormous playground for kids that also happens to be free.
Part of Admiralty Park, the 2km mangrove trail is short and sweet but still gives you a bit of everything: indescribable views, looming trees, and glimpses of rare wildlife. It’s all there and it’s spectacular. The trail is paved, flat, and wide, so no doubt it’s suitable for a stroll with the entire fam.
You’ll traipse through a dense forest of huge moss-covered trees, 3 intertwined bridges, and the serene Sungei Cina river. Big atlas moths, long-tail macaques, and even the rare damselflies call this place home. Try to spot them if you can.
Admiralty Park seems to have it all: lush greenery, scenic landscape, and even a playground that consists of 26 slides, tubes, and zip lines.
Between the green tube slides, open metallic slides, cargo nets, and sand pits at the Junior Play area, toddlers aged 5 and below will have a ball. There are also several swings including a tandem swing that comes with a bucket and a regular seat so parents can sit behind their bubs.
As for older children, the 32m-long roller slide, towering double barrel tube sides, and yellow suspension bridge at the Adventure Play and Family Terracing play zones will be enough to keep them busy for hours.
For a change of scenery this weekend, swap indoor playgrounds and brunches with a trip to Admiralty Park.
A few words of advice before you hit the park: go early in the morning to avoid the crowd, cover yourself with bug spray, bring sunscreen, and pack water and snacks.
Getting there: walk for 15 minutes from Woodlands MRT station or hop on bus 856 which departs from Woodlands North Station bus stop. Get off at the After Woodlands Waterfront Park bus stop and you’ll arrive at Admiralty Park.
