Swings, see-saws and other playground can be found at the open area at the Esplanade Courtyard. However, this is not a playground. Instead, it is an exhibition called This is What We Eat at Home.
This photography project features 12 children and youth from different households in Boon Lay. It focuses on something very fundamental to life – meal preparations and food. This provides a window to get a view into the life experiences, caregiving models, heritage and value systems in the community.
Sit Down at Playground Stations
Visitors to This is What We Eat at Home can sit down at the various stations and find out what mealtimes are like for different families. Some take the opportunity to invest the time in each other, using it as platform to create memories and pass down knowledge from one generation to the next.
