[UPDATED!] 25 New Attractions & Places in Singapore that Opened in 2024! (>50% are FREE!)

No comments :



Looking for new places and attractions to bring the family? There're 20 25 NEW attractions that opened this 2024 year to visit!

And the GOOD NEWS is MORE THAN 50% of these places are actually FREE to visit! 😁


TL;DR In my 19 years of parenting, I say this is one of the BEST exhibitions for kids. Period. And it’s free for all Singaporeans & PRs!

Children’s Museum Singapore has revamped its entire second floor to showcase “Into The Hawkerverse” which introduces Singapore's Hawker Culture as an important part of Singapore's food heritage and way of life to children.

Children get to travel back in time to the exciting days of street hawkers, meet hawker culture heroes and listen to their stories, step into the big shoes of hawkers, discover the encyclopaedic array of hawker dishes and the careful consideration of hawker centre design, as well as glimpse into the future of hawker culture. Loads of interactive fun, especially the part where they can take orders and be hawkers! 

I love how it introduces Singapore’s hawker culture to kids in a fun, immersive & interactive way - from the street hawkers of yesteryears to role-playing as a hawker in a present day. There’s also a dedicated aread for kids 4 & below, Play Pot which features a masak-masak space with a mee goreng pool!

For the kids, there’s the children's playground with biophilic elements inspired by the natural wilderness of the Rail Corridor. There’s a climbing structure with various obstacles and a small ‘hill’ with a tunnel and slide.

Step into Sensoryscape, where a sensory journey from Sentosa's lush ridges to its vibrant reefs unfolds. In this day-to-night experience, each scent, sound, touch, and light display marks the start of an immersive sensory adventure, where every discovery becomes an unforgettable memory.

Spanning 30,000sqm, this landmark connects Resorts World Sentosa to the beaches, offering a seamless journey filled with sensory delights. More than just a passage for respite and wayfinding, this 350m verdant connector comprises six sensory gardens, which combines nature, architecture, and technology to awaken all senses.

Comprising an assortment of semi-enclosed sensory gardens – Glow Garden, Symphony Streams, Scented Sphere, Tactile Trellis, and Palate Playground – each has been meticulously designed to interact with the senses.

  • Symphony Streams (Sound): A haven of tranquility, where you can unwind to the serene rhythm of trickling water.

  • Scented Sphere (Smell): The garden features cantilevers with plants that create an aromatic landscape, with natural fragrances to form a year-round scent palette.

  • Tactile Trellis (Touch): Explore a world of intriguing textures, from the intricate relief of fossilised objects and tree barks to touch-responsive plants.

  • Palate Playground (Taste): Featuring a lush garden, it’s enriched with aromatic herbs and exotic spices.

  • Glow Garden (Sight): Rows of tall flower stalks on each side of the walkway comes to life through an awe-inspiring display of light.

A massive play area consisting of FOUR playgrounds that is transport-themed? Yes, please!

Located at the Ubi Grove HDB flats cluster, the 4 playgrounds draw inspiration from the Ubi area, which is home to car workshops and light industrial factories. Kids can hop into a Monster Car, ‘drive’ around a road circuit, scamper onto a cargo truck and even play in a giant toolbox!


This larger-than-life car needs no COE, only lots of role-play & imagination! Kids can climb into the car, stand on the huge seats, and steer the giant steering wheel! There’s a cargo netting to scamper over, crawl into the engine room via one of its wheels, or simply slide on down!


Best suited for kids aged 6 & above, the bright red cargo truck will be the first thing to catch their attention. Climb into the driver’s seat to take the wheel, or navigate to the back of the truck to climb over ropes and wooden blocks. There’s even a big fuel pump-shaped play structure for kids to climb into and slide down!

One of the highlights is the upsized toolbox where kids can climb inside for even more fun play. Not only that, I love how supersized tools are ‘left lying around’ for non-structured play. Younger kids can head to the 2 smaller play structures located beside the toolbox which offer more age-appropriate fun.


Younger kids can head to this playground where a road circuit on the ground sets the tone of the play area. Much like the nearby Ubi Driving Centre, kids can imagine themselves to be cars and vroom along the ‘roads’, complete with traffic junctions & zebra crossings.

Other than a small play structure in the middle, kids can hop onto a jeep & a VW Kombi van, and even refuel at the gas station! There’s also a giant orange climbing net structure for older kids.


For even younger kids, head here for smaller and simpler play structures, like a merry-go-round & mini vehicles. There is a larger play structure in the middle and a jump zone with number mounds for kids to test their agility skills.

Address: Ubi Grove (MAP)

Opening hours: N.A.

Admission: FREE


Two brand new playgrounds have opened at Rivervale Shores at Sengkang (the largest BTO project to date) with another one still under construction.

Located on the Landscape Garden (Level 2, above the carpark)and in front of Blk 173C, the Flying Bird Playground, is tailored for young adventurers aged 2-12. Just like real birds that soar high in the sky, this playground includes exciting elements such as flying fox (still not available at time of writing) and bird nest swings.

Kids will have fun scaling up the three colourful bird nests, which are connected via net bridges. There are various  layers within each nest and slides are attached to 2 of them. In addition, there’re hammock swings, cargo nets and other play structures beside the main play area.

Not too far away at Block 173A is a smaller playground for kids aged below 6 yrs old. This consists of a smaller and shorter climbing tower with a slide, large blocks for kids to climb up & down, and play things to make music with.

The final playground is at Blk 175B and is currently still UNDER CONSTRUCTION. Once completed, this Land Bird Playground (last pic) targets kids aged 2 12  and boasts features like climbing ropes and tube slides.

- The most striking feature has to be the floor-to-ceiling column with coral-like features, coupled with marine trivia at the bottom.

- A cosy space surrounding the corals, with books targeted at 0 to 3 years old placed at ground level all around.

- A collection of marine specimens including shark egg cases and coral skeletons.

Various marine trivia can also be found throughout the library, like on the walls above the book shelves, where kids can learn about the multitude of organisms that live on marine shorelines. 

There’re plenty of features for non-kids too- head to Singapore Alcove, an immersive space which integrates the Singapore collection and an exhibition that tells Singapore Stories. Try creating a personalised QR code and use it to scan in various zones to interact with the content.
