The Sotong Play Nature Playgarden at East Coast Park Area E shows how, with a little bit of imagination, any place can be transformed into a wonderful play spot in a child’s mind.

Located between the East Coast Lagoon Hawker Centre and the East Coast Lagoon, Sotong Play is made up of a variety of tree stumps and logs which have been arranged to form wooden pathways that skirt all around the playgarden.

Why is the East Coast Park Area E playgarden called Sotong Play you may asked? Well, if you look at it from a particular angle, and with a dose of imagination, you can see a resemblance to a sea creature in the layout of the tree stump. Personally, it looks more like an octopus to us than a squid.

Eyes

To help people along, NParks has created two yellow round eyes made up of leftover pieces of wood. The remaining roots spreading out from the tree stump make up the squid’s tentacles.

Beside the main tree stump, the little nature playgarden also has a mound created by small logs arranged to give younger kids a bit of challenge as they step upwards towards the top.

On the other side of a paved footpath, there is another set of logs that kids can explore. These lead through an area planted with shrubs and flowers before reaching yet another mound of tree logs.
