Yan Kit Swimming Complex is located along Yan Kit Road at Tanjong Pagar area. It opened in 1952 and was the second public swimming pool in Singapore. The pool has been closed since 2001 and is now abandoned.
The swimming complex has been abandoned for a decade and most people do not know about it except for residents staying in the area. It is the perfect location for an adventure since there are few places like this left in urbanized Singapore. The barb wires along the fences had been reinforced to prevent people from climbing in so you will have to sneak in from the 3rd floor of the multi-storey car park beside the swimming pool. The fun begins once you take a few minutes to climb in!
There are a total of three swimming pools and a diving platform in the complex. The designs and colorful tiles used in the complex are very different to the modern swimming pools you see nowadays. It seems like time has stood still here for the past 10 years. Walking at the bottom of the pool and taking photos is also a very unique and fun experience. You can also climb up the diving platform and walk to the edge to test your courage.
If you are sick and tired of shooting the same landscapes in Singapore, Yan Kit Swimming Complex will be a refreshing change!
