9 Things To Do At Singapore Sports Hub

by - Wednesday, July 20, 2016

9th August is Singapore's most important day of the year. Yup, it is less than a month away to our National Day. Do you know what is the biggest highlight of National Day? Of course it is the National Day Parade!! After a 10 years gap, this year's NDP is returning back to the National Stadium at the Sports Hub.

Apart from visiting the Sports Hub for #NDP2016, do you know that there are actually many family-friendly activities going on at Sports Hub from now up to National Day? While you are there to catch the fireworks at night, why not pop in earlier and take part in these activities before winding down for a sunset and the fireworks?

5. Run, Scoot, Skate at 100PLUS Promenade 

The 100PLUS Promenade is Singapore’s largest fully-sheltered, free-to-use civic space. You can run, scoot or skate over here. A great way to have some family fun. The boys had so much fun running there that I almost wanted to let them run and see how many rounds they can cover. Too energetic!


6. Experience Sports "Learn-to-Play" Sessions

Targeted at kids aged 7 years and above, these "Learn-to-Play" sessions give kids the opportunity to experience different sports and discover their sporting interest. Different sports are taught each month. For more information, please check here.

7. EcoRider Tour @ Visitors Centre

Ride on a EcoRider for a fun ride or a guided tour of Singapore Sports Hub. For more information, please check here.

8. Climb Central @ Kallang Wave Mall

Climb Central is the tallest indoor rock climbing wall in Singapore. There are climbing lanes and equipment suitable for both kids and adults. Definitely a great activity to boost the confidence level of the kids and have a fun day climbing as a family.

Children must be at least 5 years old, 20kg and 1.1m tall to participate

If climbing is not your forte, there are also lots more to do at Kallang Wave Mall. Eat.Play.Shop!

The boys' favourite, Zoo Moov!

Lots of eateries there too!

9. Stadium Riverside Walk

The Stadium Riverside Walk is a great place to wind down after all the fun. It offers an awesome view of the Kallang Basin and the Singapore skyline. Psst... this is also a good spot for fireworks viewing!
