Coastal PlayGrove Food Splash & Restaurants

Coastal PlayGrove is a family friendly space in East Coast Park (Area B). The former Big Splash site is now a vibrant recreation hub offering a trove of activities for kids of all ages, from the exciting Play Tower and refreshing Water Play Area to the immersive Nature Play Garden and Outdoor Classroom by the Sea. After all the excitement, Coastal PlayGrove Food Splash, a cozy multi-concept food court, provides a variety of delicious options to refuel.

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.
