Stretching for more than 15 kilometers, it is Singapore’s largest park, perfect for strolling, jogging, enjoying a great variety of sports – and for family picnics, of course. Whether you are searching for a livelier atmosphere with playgrounds, smiling people around, and all that jazz or want something quieter, there is a place for everyone at East Coast Park. If you forgot anything at home or just didn’t bring enough, there are food courts to replenish your supplies. We particularly recommend the quiet beach beside the Bougainvillea Garden.

Gardens by the Bay

Gardens by the Bay is undoubtedly Singapore’s haven of greenery, bright flowers, and beautiful views. You can put your picnic mat (just be sure to take it from home) literally everywhere since you will find boundless open spaces and green lawns in this nature park. The Bay East Garden, with its breathtaking views of the Marina Bay skyline, plenty of shade from the trees, and great opportunities for running, cycling, kite-flying, and playing various active games with your kids, would be a perfect option.

After exploring Fort Canning Park, which is full of history, beautiful flora, lovely spots for family pictures, and exciting playgrounds, there’s nothing better than setting up your picnic blanket and refreshments in Fort Canning Green. Enjoy sunbathing, reading, playing badminton, or just people-watching. Fort Gate, with lots of trees, is a more shaded and quieter spot.

Jurong Lake Gardens

Here’s an option for those willing to get a bit further from the bustling city. Get on a ferry from Marina South Pier and head to lovely Lazarus Island. There is a pristine beach lined with trees – a perfect spot to admire the sun, the sand, and the sea while enjoying delicious snacks and nice talks with your family. Have an active or a totally lazy day. Be sure to bring a trash bag with you – our Nature deserves your respect and care.

While Sentosa is an absolutely picnic-friendly destination, we’d like to pay special attention to Palawan Beach. There, you can easily find an ideal spot far away from the crowd and enjoy your family beach day. A mind-blowing view, a refreshing sea breeze, your smiling kids – let this moment last forever. Are you ready to build the most magnificent sandcastle ever? Yes, getting to the southernmost point of Continental Asia is a must. Don’t forget to take your Frisbee.

Punggol Waterway Park is beloved by families with kids for its water and sand play area and for its nice spots for picnics, of course. Lush greenery, lovely bridges overlooking the waterway, and an amazing view of the waterfront – it looks like we’ve just found our ideal place to take a break and relax.

Sengkang Riverside Park

It is a little serene park with numerous trails, bridges, and greenery all around. Your kids will love cute fruit-shaped sculptures along the Fruit-themed boardwalk. After strolling, cycling, running, climbing the giant fruits, and enjoying other fun activities, spread out your picnic blanket by a mini-pond near the Visitors Centre and enjoy the moment. We bet your homemade sandwiches have never tasted so good before.
