This place is a family recreational park, you can bring your little ones for a fun water play, no kids can resist playing with water. Ocean Park has a shallow kiddie pool for toddlers where they can have fun just walking around the pool or play with the water canon, spray, sliding etc.

There's also a kids pool next to the toddler pool where bigger kids can play there, however no tube allowed in this pool.  In this pool, kids usually gather around the play arena where there's a giant pail that will spill a huge splash of water whenever the pail is already full with water.  The shrieking of the kids getting splashed and their wide grins is a sight to enjoy.

For a different experience, move to the farther pools at the back where the area is actually a lot bigger than the kids pools at the front side.  In this area, there's a high water sliding where you can slide side by side with three other persons, however you must be at a certain minimum height to be able to play in this slide.


There's a also two great sliding tube where you can slide together with friends, however, a precaution, as these sliding comes out to a deeper pool, make sure there's someone down in the pool to catch your kids when they emerge from the slide.

The biggest and perhaps most sought after pool in Ocean Park is actually the wave pool.  The design of this pool is made to a liking of a white sandy beach, and the wave will be set at one hour interval.  Usually the park will sound a siren to alert all visitors that wave pool is about to start so people will rush to the pool to enjoy the wave with their tube.  The wave is actually quite strong, so if you're taking your toddlers, it's best to stay at the shallow side of the pool.

You can also play the trampoline and flying fox inside the park for free.
