The next happening ‘city’ in Singapore other than Orchard, would be Jurong East. Why? Because other than the famous fact of huge human traffic at the train station everyday, we have 4 big malls located just beside or a near distance away. And if we are to talk about the malls, the latest mall that opened in December 2013, Westgate, have recently just opened the Thematic Outdoor Playground located at level 4 of the shopping mall. It is open to public of all age from Monday to Friday, 10AM to 10PM, and the admission is free!
The playground carries a Fantasy Garden Theme, and of course the name would be one like Fairytale – Westgate Wonderland. This playground contains dry and wet areas with different play zones. Various interactive elements are done up in the form of gigantic flowers, insects, tall tree house, watering can and many more.
At the dry area, you can find gigantic insects, interactive musical flowers, and a ten-meter high tree house that allows climbing to the top and with slides for a fun exit. Parents can take a seat on the adorable mushrooms, logs or tomato chairs while waiting or keeping an eye on your children.
Moving on to the wet area of the playground, you can find an enormous watering can that sprays water and high floral that pours water right down, making sure you and your companions get drenched as desired. Mini water fountains are planted all around the wet area too, making sure you doesn’t miss getting wet. Are you starting to think about the downside of getting wet? How troublesome and inconvenient it will be after all… Another plus point for this playground, there is a drying room and changing room placed right in the wet area for you to handle the aftermath. You can still leave nice and dry after all the fun.
As a swim school, we are very glad to know that there is such an interesting place for water play. Especially for children, wet playground can be a place for them to start interacting with water. Children who love to play with water, they’ll love it. Children who have fear for water; this is even more the place for them. Start with having fun with the water and slowly they will be able to only associate water with fun and enjoyment!
Although it states that the Wonderland playground is suitable for kids of age 2 to 12 years old, but who knows, the fairytale moment could be for children, teenagers, young adults, parents or even our grandparents! The colourful and interesting playground simply brings a smile to all of us. Have a visit to the Wonderland!
