A visit to the Gardens
We made a visit to the Jacob Ballas Children's Garden yesterday morning. It is located within the Bukit Timah Core of Singapore Botanic Gardens. It is Asia's first Children's garden, and it aims to cultivate an appreciation for plants, nature and the environment among the young through play and exploration.
Admission to the Jacob Ballas Children's Garden is free and is open to children up to 12 years old. All children have to be accompanied by an adult. And adults not accompanied by children, will need to join designated viewing sessions of the park.
Some of the things that interested my children at the park were the suspension bridge, the maze, a water-play area, and a giant tree-house! There was also a party-place, a covered area where, I assume, people could book to use as a party venue.
There were also educational areas within the park such as the sensory garden, an exhibit on photosynthesis, etc. Unfortunately, my kids were only interested in the "play" parts of the park!!
