Singapore’s new Sports Hub

We stopped by Kallang this weekend and checked out the brand new sports hub which opened in June.  The hub includes the national stadium, library, recreation room, museum, water playground and retail mall.  This July, there are quite a few free or special events as many stores and features are not yet open. We used to visit the indoor stadium and waterfront for weekend brunches and family evenings, but hadn’t returned since the rebuilding works began ~2+ years ago. Last time we were there, B was a wee 3 month old baby!  This time, he was an active and chatty 31 month old tot 🙂

The stadium’s retractable seating makes it the only one in the world able to host diverse sports events, concerts, family entertainment shows, national and community events.

Lots of open spaces to run, scoot and bike. There's also a kid's waterpark (not yet completed)

    1. It was all very peaceful and new, though some parts are still a work in progress. Highlight for B to able to scoot safely and easily, as the walkways are wide, smooth and not crowded
