Kids Fun In Singapore Without The Crowd: 112 Katong

free playground mall
Kids Water Playground in Singapore

I was out on a movie date with hubby last Saturday afternoon and because of our time constraint, the only suitable place to head for was 112 Katong. This is our first visit there since I don't think anyone would really head to Katong if you don't live near the area. The shopping centre has been newly renovated and the tenant mix is really quite good. Not the usual suspects of the various malls in Singapore. There are also a few kids enrichment centre there such as Mind Stretcher Learning Centre, Perching Kids, The Ballet & Music Company, Xue Lin Learning Hub and Z Fencing. 

We managed to check out their free water playground for kids at 112 Katong level 4 too. It's quite big and there is no crowd (look at the picture and it's at 6pm Saturday) since the mall caters to the upper class and expat living around the East Coast area; who probably have like facilities in their condominiums and only head to the free water playground there when mommy has an errand to run or when the kids finish their enrichment class there. Plus, 112 Katong is not really that accessible if you are taking public transportation hence less crowd. So, if you are looking for a place to let your kids have some fun this weekend and would like to avoid the crowd, this might be the place to head to. Although I don't think the place has any fast food chain that you can head to afterwards. And, if you are a muslim, the only halal eating place there might be Bali Thai and maybe if there is a malay stall at Food Republic @ Level 4.
