Jacob Ballas Children's Garden


There are so many things to explore and learn at the Jacob Ballas Children's Garden. It's one of our favorite parks to take the kids!

It is the first (and biggest) garden in Asia that is dedicated to children. Its theme of "Life on Earth Depends on Plants" aims to educate and instill a love for nature in children.

The garden offers a complete nature-learning environment, where children can delve deeper into the ecology of plants and our environment through discovery and experiential learning.

What to Expect

Here's just a few of the activities that you can look forward to:

  • Explore the suspension bridge and nature play areas
  • Walk along the stream and climb into the tree-houses
  • Observe how plants grow and pick up some gardening tips

With a farm, orchard, and forest with its own stream and ponds, the garden offers children many opportunities for exploration, adventure, and play.
