The lush Far East Organization Children’s Garden at Gardens By The Bay is really a sprawling playground designed to enhance a child’s physical and cognitive through different sensory play elements – from water play to rope climbing obstacles, your child will be begging to return time and time again!
Far East Organization Children’s Garden
Water Play Area (6 to 12-year-olds)
The basketball-sized water play zone is what greets you as you enter into Far East Organization Children’s Garden. The main entranceway is now facing out towards the Marina Bay area.
NINJA CHALLENGE: Bring your A-game for a Day of Sporty Fun at this Mall
Complete with orchid-shaped splash buckets, hydro-vaults and water sprinklers, the water play zone is heaps of fun and will look so very inviting on a hot day!
The centrepiece of the Children’s Garden, the water play area will absolutely delight child and adult alike! Run through the water sprinklers or wait with bated breath for a massive splash from one of the splash buckets – I personally could have played on all day.
For the younger children, Fish Fountain is a mini water play area that is calmer and more baby-friendly.
Adult supervision is strictly required at all times in the water play zone. Young and old are allowed in the water play area and although swimwear is not required, footwear is an absolute no-no.
Toddler Play Area (1 to 5-year-olds)
Just off to one side of the Far East Organization Children’s Garden water play area – with lovely dense shrubbery acting as a partition – is the Toddler Play Area.
Featuring play equipment such as a sway bridge and stepping springs, a slide and a couple of hammock-like swings, the Toddler Play Area is perfect for toddlers to camber around and play in.
The Toddler Play Area isn’t large by any means, so parents catching their breaths under the large umbrellas can easily supervise without breaking too much of a sweat.
Adventure Trail (6 to 12-year-olds)
This is where jungle adventure fantasies come to life!
Located within a dense canopy of trees, the Gardens by the Bay’s Children’s Garden is home to Adventure Trail.
It spans 130 metres long and consists of more than 10 obstacles.
Think wobbly suspension bridges, super-sized slides, a spider web and a rock wall, and monkey bars.
At the end of Adventure Trail is a long suspension bridge that leads to the two Rainforest Treehouses of the Children’s Garden.
There kids can have plenty of fun exploring the treehouse vertically.
Hammock swings, swinging nets and slides can be found in the treehouse.
