This is one of the biggest free outdoor playgrounds in Singapore.
Lush greenery is everywhere around you at the Children's Garden as its play elements are well integrated into the natural surroundings.
There are 4 main play zones:
1. Water Play area
2. Toddler Playground
3. Rainforest Tree Houses
4. Adventure Trail
Children will have a good time running and splashing around the fountains and spray jets at the water play area. The area is linked to sensors which detect the movements of children to create interesting sequences of water effects.
There is also an area dedicated to the younger ones (1-5 years old) to play around in. Toddlers will love exploring the stepping springs and the Fish Fountain with its interactive landscape of water tunnels and fish sculptures.
This playground is aimed more for the younger kids (1-5 years old) and has a variety of swings, sway bridges, slides, balancing obstacles, and kiddie rides.
Go on a jungle adventure and start exploring the two tree houses here which are set amidst a dense canopy of trees. The two tree houses here reach heights of 4 meters and 7.5 meters respectively.
Conquer the rickety link bridge, make your way to the top, and be rewarded with a slide back down to the bottom through a winding tube slide.
The entire playground here is covered in sand so it's also a great place for sand play.
Kiddos that are feeling more adventurous can go on the 130 meter long forest trail with adventure stations and obstacles all along the way. Some of the stations here can be challenging even for adults so they may be more suitable for the older kids (6-12 years old).
It'll be good, we promise 😊
