Named after clusia plants such as the Balsam Apple, Clusia Cove at Jurong Lake Gardens’ Lakeside Garden is a self-contained water eco-system. It is also where you will find a tidal play pond that offers families and children a fun water play area at Jurong Lake Gardens.
Clusia Cove is located at the northern end of Lakeside Garden at Jurong Lake Gardens. It consists of a series of ponds that mimic a wetland ecosystem in a closed loop.
Water circulates around an eco-pond, a cleansing biotope and tidal pool with plants and the substrate playing a role in keeping the water clean. An underground ultraviolet room also helps to disinfect the water circulating around Clusia Cove.
Water Play Area at Jurong Lake Gardens – Tidal Pool
At the tidal pool, families and children can wade into the 30 cm deep water and experience the movement of water.
Every once in a while, water pours into the Clusia Cove water play area, creating the “tidal” movement.
From the tidal pool, the water flows on towards a play area.
At this section of the Jurong Lake Gardens water play area, the water flows through a series of channels created by mini islands and rock outcrops.
There are tidal gates that allow children to experience controlling the flow of water.
A little “beach” or sand play area sits beside the water. However, at time, you might find it submerged under the waters flowing into the pool area.
