Marine Cove – Singapore

This recently renovated marine-themed seaside playground is all about playing well. From the gigantic central structure that’s modeled to look like a lighthouse (and boasts three gigantic slides to choose from!) to the supported monkey bars that include a roller down below so kids of all ages and abilities can make the crossing, inclusion is at the heart of this park.
