Singapore opens a new outdoor recreational area in their Gardens by the Bay attraction, called the “Far East Organization Children’s Garden”, after the real estate company who contributed $10 million for the project.
The expanse has play areas with sand and rubber flooring to complete the outdoor experience, with exotic trees such as palm, yellow jade orchid tree, baobab trees from Madagascar and more.
The one-hectare garden offers several interactive installations meant for children between 1 and 12 years old, and is open from 9 am to 9 pm Tuesdays to Sundays. Admission is free.
The garden is divided into four main areas. The Toddler Play Zone (best for kids 1 to 5 years old) features a sway bridge; stepping springs; a fish fountain which has water tunnels, water jets for kids to dodge and enhance their motor skills, as well as fish sculptures with sculpted backs kids can clamber onto. A cafeteria is nearby for snacks and refreshments.
