Sweet Sundays in Singapore

by admin on June 23, 2014


One of my favourite things to do in Singapore on a Sunday is go to The Training Shed at Labrador Park. The first time we went we laid out our picnic blankets on the grass, had our drinks in hand and were just settling down for a lazy afternoon when the rain came. It wasn’t just a passing shower as we hoped it might be, it was fast, furious and likely to wash us all away. While the adults took cover under the nearest tarpaulin, bonding with strangers as we huddled together trying to avoid the incessant rain (without much success I might add), the kids all jumped around in the mud and got soaked through. They were in heaven – the rain is warm in Singapore afterall. And the DJ played on.

The Training Shed is like a mini festival complete with DJs spinning funky beats, a bar and barbecue food and I love it. It reminds me of the festivals I used to go to back home, rain and all. It’s very chilled, lots of fun and there’s a big grassy area so kids can run around. There is plenty to keep them happy too – hula hoops, beach balls, giant blackboards to graffiti all over and cardboard boxes for them to do whatever they wish with.

The event attracts people of all ages (and children, babies and dogs). It’s just a shame it is on a Sunday because the next day is a school day and we have to make sure our kids get to bed on time.

And when the families leave, those lucky child-free people get to party the night away.

The Training Shed takes place on the third Sunday of every month at Labrador Park from 3pm or 5pm until late. (Bring picnic blankets and mosi repellent)
