Como Adventure Grove Playground

Set within the lush surroundings of the Singapore Botanic Gardens, the Como Adventure Grove playground is part of the 8-hectare Gallop Extension and provides a place for children to experience and be closer to nature.

Created to provide a place for children to experience and be closer to nature, the playground takes its inspiration from the distinctive parts of trees found within the Singapore Botanic Gardens, and is a modern interpretation of the experience of climbing and playing in trees.

With so many play features and its beautiful natural setting, the Como Adventure Grove is fast becoming one of our favorite outdoor playgrounds!

Banyan Tree Tower

The centerpiece of the playground is the Banyan Tree tower with 14 long steel branches extending out from the tower, resembling a real tree.

The branches have actually been hand-painted with textured brushstrokes to recreate the appearance of tree barks. A nice touch!

A variety of swings, climbing ropes, hammocks, and obstacles hang from the branches for children to explore freely.

There are also two thrilling tube slides extending from the Banyan Tree Tower, one at 11m long and the other one at 6m.

Designed for speed and thrills, the slides let kids exit the canopy with an exciting ride.

They'll be going back for more as once is definitely not enough!
