Located along Yuan Ching Road and next to Lakeside MRT station in Jurong, the 53-hectare Lakeside Garden, the western section of Jurong Lake Gardens, has opened and promises a little bit of everything for everyone in the family! Lakeside Garden was developed with a strong emphasis on nature, community, and play, featuring space to gather, bond, and create shared memories. So what's in it for the kids? Plenty! Children aged between 5 to 12 would love Forest Ramble, the largest nature playgarden in the heartlands. The 2.3-hectare play area comprises 13 different adventure stations for little ones to explore and emulate the movement of animals which inhabit a freshwater swamp forest. For the water babies, Clusia Cove, located at the northern part of Lakeside Garden, is a haven as it features a water play area for everyone of all ages, an eco-pond, and a cafe. Clusia Cove adopts a closed-loop circulation system that includes water being cleansed through a natural plant filtration system before cascading into a shallow tidal pool and sand-based ripple pool for children and families to enjoy. For those simply wanting a relaxing stroll through the garden, head for Rasau Walk, a meandering boardwalk that brings you close to the water’s edge along the western part of Jurong Lake. The boardwalk takes you through a restored freshwater swamp forest that has been enhanced with some 50 species of plants.
