We’ve said this many times, and we’ll say it again. East Side is the Fun Side. Inarguably. And perhaps, one of Singapore’s most treasured districts for its upbeat and vibrant district, the East Coast Park is more than just the sun, the sea, and the beach. It’s got some of the most fun activities and a galore of delectable eats that will persuade you to spread on some sunscreen and have a taste for some outdoor action.
Here’s our 5 dopamine fix that you should consider doing this weekend or on holiday with your friends and family.
1. Pedal Out From Cyclist Park To Marina Bay
With a fantastic biking stretch of 15 km, you’re in for a treat for some Vitamin D and scenic views of the bay waters and lush greenery. If you have no two wheels, rental bike kiosks are at Fort Road, and at Area E close to Lagoon Food Centre and Car Park E2. Rental rates are from $6 for kids and $10 for adults.
The Cyclist Park features pump tracks and twisting bike routes for beginners and intermediate cyclists. It’s perfect for training your kids (and adults who are not too late to catch up!). This could just be the start of a fun and healthy weekend hobby.
Address: East Coast Park Service Road, East Coast Park
Hours: 24 Hours
2. Rollerblade at Coastline Leisure
If bicycles don’t give you the thrill, you can switch up to rollerblades which you can rent at Coastline Leisure. Get your rexing, scissors, dipping, and spins into practice, or arrange a skate date with your friends or someone special.
At $18 for the first hour and 8 for the subsequent ones, you can hit the cycling/skating path anytime as they serve 24 hours.

3. Bond with the Kids at Coastal Playgrove
The newest attraction in East Coast Park, the Coastal Playgrove, is a total fun park for kids and the whole family. It features a 16-metre high Play Tower with 4 storeys of net play climbing areas for a Vertical Challenge. The highlights of the park are the two tube slides with the tallest at 11.9 metres high for a solid adrenalin rush.
Let the kids play in the Waterplay for some cooling off or introduce them to Singapore’s flora and fauna at the Nature Playgarden. The Coastal Playground has no entrance fee, but take note of the age restrictions in certain play areas. Open from 8:00 AM – 10:00 PM, Tuesdays to Sundays.
Address: 902 East Coast Park Road, Singapore 449874
Hours: 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM (Tue-Sun)
4. Wakeboard and Water Ski at Wakepark
Built in a lagoon for an action-packed cable-ski park, Wakepark is the only one of its kind in Singapore. And it’s right here on East Coast Park. It’s got two cable systems; one full-sized cable for an intense adrenaline surge, and one 2-cable system for those just dipping their toes in a different kind of adventure. Kids aged 6 and above can also get a splash.
If you’re looking for a full day of fun with friends and family, Wakepark should be on your list. Book your schedule here

5. Dine at East Coast Lagoon Food Village
After a long day of fun outdoors, what better way to cap the weekend than to fill your tummies with East Coast’s awesome eats. This vibrant food village in the seaside atmosphere makes you think of smokey barbecues, fresh seafood, satays, and all that summary indulgent cravings.
Our all-time favorites are the Haron Satay 55 for their chicken, mutton, and beef satay ($.08), Huat Huat Barbecue Seafood for their stingray (starts at $12), and the delectable Curry Fish head ($25). Ah Hwee BBQ Chicken is also popular among families (Spring Chicken ($8) & BBQ Chicken Wings ($1.30)), and the Crispy Carrot Cake (from $4) at Lagoon Carrot Cake is also a big hit!
