10 minutes’ drive from Sims Urban Oasis
Hidden in a relatively remote corner of Kallang is a sporting gem. Known as Kallang Ice World, this is an indoor skating rink that provides well-needed respite from the tropical heat. This indoor sporting venue occupies a good part of Level 3 of Kallang Leisure Park. Featuring a huge expanse of ice and a very high ceiling, this a very safe area in which families can spend a leisurely afternoon. Kallang Ice World is out of bounds to non-paying visitors so privacy is ensured for novice skaters. Each entry ticket is good for two hours. Note that ice resurfacing takes place every three hours (1pm, 4pm, 7pm, 10pm) and eats into your skating time, so plan to enter just after the machine has worked its magic.
