Where to go skating in Singapore
Ice skating rinks in Singapore
1. Kallang Ice World
Glide onto the rink at Kallang Ice Worl for an authentic on-ice experience. As the largest skating rink in Singapore, Kallang Ice World is a popular destination for both professional and non-professional skaters. With free support frames for kids and skating courses for anyone and everyone, you’ll be zooming across the ice in no time. Kallang Ice World is also available as a venue to book that extra special birthday party for the kids and it’s an ideal venue for performances and competitions. If you prefer taking a backseat to the action, there are prime seats in the viewing gallery.
Kallang Ice World, 5 Stadium Walk #03-08/09, Singapore 397693
2. The Rink at JCube
Located on Level 3 of the bustling JCube, The Rink is one of the more popular ice skating rinks in Singapore. On top of having real ice, there are skating aids for all ages. The Seal aid is a little bit pricier but it’s worth it for giving the kids a ride on top of keeping you upright (and it’s cute to boot!). While it does get pretty busy with ice hockey tournaments and training sessions for the National Skating Association, there’s a helpful schedule on the website to let you know when the rink is open for public freestyle skating sessions. Tickets are for two hours each with extra skating time calculated at every extra half hour.
The Rink, JCube, 2 Jurong East Central 1 #03-11, Singapore 609731
Rollerblading and rollerskating in Singapore
Prefer to stay on solid ground? No problem! Although there are no more roller rinks in Singapore, there’s plenty of skate parks to do crazy tricks at or Singapore’s prettiest parks where you can admire the flowers as you zoom by. Explore Singapore’s greenery in the comfort of your own set of wheels, or hire your gear from skate shops scattered around the island.

10. Singapore Sports Hub
If you have your own skating gear and looking for a good place to go for a spin, head to the 100PLUS Promenade at the Singapore Sports Hub. The 900-metre indoor track, which circles the National Stadium, is sheltered and less crowded. The smooth, multi-coloured lanes ensure that you’ll have a smooth rollerblading experience. This means not having to slow down because of cyclists or joggers! Sure, going around the track might get old after a while, but it does give you some uninterrupted space to practise or just get the hang of balancing.

Skateboarding and skate parks in Singapore
Whether the kids need space to nail new tricks or learn how to skateboard, there are quite a few skate parks ’round the island to get their Tony Hawks on, including an awesome skateboarding school for kids of all ages.
11. Somerset Skate Park
Located right across from 313 Somerset, Somerset Skate Park is a haven for both beginner and advanced skateboarders. After a revamp, this well-known skate park now features a new layout, with ramps of varying heights and several funboxes. Psst, the park closes at 10 pm daily and can get very crowded in the afternoon. SkateSports offers classes for kids between six and 13 years of age, where they’ll learn basic skateboarding techniques and tricks.
SkateSports, Somerset Skate Park, 1 Somerset Road, Singapore 238162
12. Xtreme SkatePark
Xtreme SkatePark at East Coast Park was built to perfectly blend into that laid back beach vibe ECP is known for. Plus, it has a combo bowl to pump, sprint, and lift yourself, a vertical bowl that’s 3.6 metres deep (!!), and even a street course for kids (and kidults) to practise their tricks on. Go ahead, channel your inner Tony Hawk here! This skate park is open around the clock, so you can wheel around even at night. Plus, the folks at SkateSports offer lessons here too!
1 East Coast Terrace, Singapore 458912 (Behind Carpark F)
13. Stadium Skatepark
The Singapore Sports Hub at Kallang really does have everything! And yes, it has its own skate park. Although it isn’t as big as the two we’ve mentioned above, it has rails, a fun-box, and even a mini-quarter pipe. Plus, the road around the stadium makes for great longboarding! If you miss skating the mini ramp at Somerset, this skatepark offers something similar. It’s not too steep, so you can train your pumps while going fakie (or backwards).
Singapore Sports Hub, 14 Stadium Drive, Singapore 397641 (Near Gate 14 of the National Stadium)
14. Tampines Skate Park
This modest neighbourhood skate park is perfect for budding skateboarders to get the hang of balancing on the board. They can also catch some air time on spines, as the spine here is smaller and gentler. Seasoned skaters can show off their skills on the flat ramp, grind box, flat rail, and a facing quarter-pipe.
Tampines Avenue 4, Singapore 529538
Have fun skating with the kids in Singapore, folks!
