Big Splash

Big Splash was built in 1977 on reclaimed land in East Coast Park. The waterpark featured an 85-metre long water slide and had a wave-pool and a 200 m long flow-pool. Big Splash went through various renovations and changes over the years and was later redeveloped into a dining and lifestyle destination. It closed in 2016. The site was redeveloped by The National Parks Board (NParks) as part of the rejuvenation of East Coast Park. The new Coastal PlayGrove retains the waterpark theme and its main play structure is the 16 metre high Play Tower nestled within a reconstruct of the former iconic Big Splash tower.
