The Jem Play Playground has been renovated.
The old mudskipper playground on the fifth floor of the Jurong East shopping mall has now taken on a new form.
The Jem Play Playground is now a bespoke netted playground with a water play area.
The red-and-orange playground has a play structure that is broadly made up of three hexagonal-shaped sections, juxtaposed next to each other.

Two of these hexagons are connected by a netted bridge. Kids can enter the netted play area from an entranceway at one of the hexagonal shapes, clamour up the netted bridge and make their wa across the netted passageway to the other side.
There are also triangular-shaped rubber mats which can dual-purpose as stepping stones or hanging seats for kids to play on.
Nearby, another new play feature of the Jem Play Playground are two hexagonal rubber trampolines, sunk into the ground. They provide kids with a way to bounce about and expend some energy by catching some “airtime”.
From jumping in the air to climbing through the ground, the new Jem Play Playground also has a short little tunnel that little ones can climb through. Here, they can imagine they are little creatures scurrying through the ground.
Water Play at Jem Play Playground
Those looking to cool off will appreciate the Jem Play Playground’s unique water play feature.
Individual streams of water create a water curtain that kids can run through. A shallow pool of water provides a place for kids to splash about.
There are also little fountain jet areas for little ones to have some fun in.
Netted Play at Jem
The new Jem Play Playground complements the playground’s existing netted tunnel which can still be found in an alcove around the corner.
For those who may miss the old green mudskippers, there is no need to lament. The pair of mudskippers have been relocated to their new home, one floor above the new Jem Play Playground.
The revamped Jem Play Playground is now open.
