After a 4 years hiatus, Marine Cove opens its doors to public once again.
If you had been to the old Marine Cove, you probably remember Mcdonald's, a bowling alley, a mini amusement park with claw machines (where I learn my trade) and a wide array of restaurants. This was the most happening spot in East Coast Park during its heydays. Thus when the time came for it to be demolished, there were heartaches all around Singapore.

When news flows that Marine Cove is reopening this weekend, there were many oohhs and ahhs when a mega FREE outdoor playground is unveiled within its 21,500 sqm vicinity.
Does it live up to it's hype?
The star of the playground would be the 3 storey play tower at the center of the playground. The tower is connected to a rope bridge and 3 slides of different level. Access to the top can also be made through a funnel net in the middle.

It is not the only MEGA outdoor playground in town. Other mega playground such as Pasir Ris park, West Coast park and the children's playground at Gardens by the Bay comes into mind. Given it's location and the range of restaurants near its vicinity, it will no doubt be one of the more popular ones in town.

There may be lesser F & B Outlets than compared to the past, but it covers all the essential food for most.

Once the hype is over, this will be a great place to bring kids to whenever you need to relax.
Chill and Marine Cove anyone?
