Experiential and immersive learning take center stage at Gardens by the Bay’s Children’s Festival 2023: Nature’s Imaginarium, as Supertree Grove is transformed into a supersized nature-inspired playground where kids can play amidst six larger-than-life flora and fauna installations.
Now in its ninth year, Gardens by the Bay’s Children’s Festival is a signature school holiday event. This year’s edition, which opened today and runs until June 25, has an emphasis on nurturing curiosity about biodiversity and sustainability among the young.
Supersized flora and fauna playground and caterpillar train tour
In a first for Supertree Grove, children – and their parents – can slide into the area, as a flight of steps is transformed into a 20m-long slide. As children play amidst elephant ear figs, mushrooms, honeybees, kingfishers, a painted jezebel butterfly, and poison dart frogs – the six flora and fauna installations based on plants and animals that can be found at Gardens by the Bay – they can learn how each contributes to the ecosystem in its own special way through colorful storyboards.
For a more in-depth experience, children can hop on a tour onboard a caterpillar train that will weave its way around the installations. This guided tour will provide more details about the function in nature of each flora and fauna installation.
Each weekend of Children’s Festival: Nature’s Imaginarium will also follow a specific theme, with the first being Family Weekend (June 10 and 11), followed by Pets Weekend (June 17 and 18) and finally Nature Weekend (June 24 and 25) to round up Children’s Festival.
Entry into the Children’s Festival 2023: Nature’s Imaginarium is free, with charges applying for selected activities and workshops.
