Water Play Area
Suitable for kids aged 5 to 12 years old. Open from Tuesdays to Sundays, 8am – 8pm.
Yup, every outdoor play space needs a water play area for kids to beat the heat and splash around! This inclusive water play area consists of wading pools connected by a stream with numerous water jets that light up at night. What’s more, this water play area is also wheelchair-accessible and the toilet is located close by which makes it convenient to wash up and change the kids.
Suitable for kids aged 3 to 12 years old.
Interwoven into the landscape, this Nature Playgarden enables kids to play in an environment that’s totally immersed in nature. There are several themed sections to introduce kids to different habitats. Natural materials such as wood, sand, and gravel are used and biodiversity-attracting trees and shrubs are planted to pique kids’ curiosity. From the get-go in the first section, kids can explore bamboo tunnel trails and thereafter engage in imaginative play as they hop along the log trails and hide out at the tepees. The last trail leads to a sandpit that’s planted with native shrubs. Get the kids to spot various flowers and fruits, butterflies, and bees!
Outdoor Classroom by the Sea
The first-ever outdoor classroom by the sea for pre-schoolers is here and features a huge chalkboard with boulders, log stools, all facing out to sea! Pre-schools have the option to conduct their classes outdoors here and weave in with play in the nature play garden. They can even peep into an old hornbill’s nest!
