Part of the Singapore Botanic Gardens, the Children's Garden is designed to emulate natural habitats, where animal and plant life coexist in balance.
It is the first (and biggest) garden in Asia that is dedicated to children and is a wonderful place where children can learn about the environment and nature.
Jacob Ballas Children's Garden is designed for children aged 14 and under.
Here's just a few of the activities that you can look forward to:
With a farm, orchard, and forest with its own stream and ponds, the garden offers children many opportunities for exploration, adventure, and play.
There are various playgrounds scattered throughout the park where kids can put their agility to their test on log obstacles, slide down tube slides, or navigate through a maze.
Tree house with slides
Giant toadstool shelters
Navigate your way through the maze
Zip through the air at the Flying Fox
At the interactive stations, kids can have a go at generating power for fans and lights by cycling or hand cranks.
Take note of the following restrictions before you visit:
Be sure to check out Food for Tots cafe, a kids focused cafe which is just next to the garden.
In keeping with the Children's Garden's mission of cultivating a love of nature, Food for Tots aims to inspire kids to be eco-conscious as well.
Among the eco-friendly features of the cafe are an upcycled colander light installation, themed recycling bins, and an herb wall.
There's also an interactive play area with a reading corner.
Brunch is offered all day with an extensive children's menu that includes everything from yummy chocolate banana pancakes, to creamy bacon and mushroom pasta, and Ham & Cheese Toast Dippers.
It's the perfect way to satisfy hungry tummies after a day of fun in the sun!
It'll be good, we promise 😊
