It’s not just all about sports.
More than just a sports complex, the grand 35-hectare Singapore Sports Hub is an integrated venue with something for everyone to enjoy. Here are some exciting highlights not to miss.
Your kids will love the one-metre deep lazy river and water play area (pictured) here. They can also learn to surf at the Stingray® Clinics offered. The facility is not sheltered so don’t forget the sunblock!

This is one of the most beautiful places in Singapore for a scenic evening stroll by the river. Stick around for an awesome view of the sunset as you walk across the Geylang River on the gorgeous Tanjong Rhu suspension footbridge (pictured).

Yes, an entire library catered to sports, fitness and active recreation for all the resources you need to embrace a healthy lifestyle. There’s also a kids corner and engaging activities and programmes for the public. Plus, keep a look out for the larger-than-life chess set and subbuteo facilities.

Have a fun-filled day with your family and friends in the waters by renting a canoe, kayak and pedal boat. Besides a guided water tour of the Kallang Basin, various water sports programmes and courses are also available. Find out more here.
NEXT: Kallang Wave Mall →
I’ve had my fair share of fond memories of attending fun concerts, music award shows, and basketball game here. Visit this link for events happening at the Indoor Stadium.
NEXT: Kallang Theatre →
Sometimes referred to as the Singapore National Theatre, the 1706-seat two-story auditorium (pictured) is equipped an electronically operated orchestra pit, along with up-to-date lighting and sound equipment, for performances, events, and seminars. Find out what’s happening here.
NEXT: Leisure Park Kallang →
On the other side of Stadium MRT, families can enjoy recreational and entertainment activities at Leisure Park Kallang at the bowling alley, ice-skating rink (pictured) and cinema.
NEXT: Singapore National Stadium →
And of course, we can’t talk about the Singapore Sports Hub without mentioning the grand Singapore National Stadium. This magnificent environmentally-sustainable venue can hold 55,000 capacity, has a retractable roof and can host major sports and entertainment events. The best thing is, it is built with comfort cooling technology so you won’t feel the heat. There’s also a running track around the stadium so you can have a jog in the shade.
