The Far East Organization’s Children’s Garden at Gardens by the Bay is one of our favourite playgrounds in Singapore!

Gardens by the Bay is one of Singapore’s greatest attractions, but if we’re honest, until its playground opened it rather lacked the family-friendly angle that would keep us going again and again. But then we popped by to check out the Far East Organization’s Children’s Garden and we’re huge fans — this is going to become one of your new faves mama, promise! If you’re driving or taxi-ing, head to the Satay by the Bay car park for minimum walking time, or if you have older kids who you want to tire out a bit you can head to Marina Barrage and then scoot along the waterfront to the Children’s Garden. It’s a little under signposted at the mo, but you can just follow the noise of happy children playing to find it…

Occupying one hectare of land, what we love about the Children’s Garden is how they’ve divided up the spaces clearly to keep the big and little set apart from each other. Everything is clearly marked as being suitable for either 1-5 year olds or 6-12 year olds. The only problem with this of course is if you have mixed-age kids… you’ll wish you could split yourself in two!

Far East Organization Children's Garden 5Bring the kids’ swimmers because the best part of the experience are the two fantastic water play areas. The one for mini’s is called the Fish Fountain and is made up of seventeen fish sculptures, which littles can clamber on and around while water jets from their mouths. The bigger water play area really has to be seen to be believed — the various jets and splash buckets have been synchronised to music and builds to a crescendo, where if you’re standing anywhere nearby, you’re going to get wet! Make sure to bring plenty of sunscreen and rash vests as the water play areas are not covered, but there’s a stadium-style seating area (which is under a large sail) if you want to stick to the shade.

Far East Organization Children's Garden 4In terms of dry play, the Toddler Playground has tons to keep under-5’s amused, while the Treehouses are full of climbing and exploring possibilities that will test your little monkeys to the limit! There’s also an Adventure Trail that we somehow missed on our visit, but which we hear is even more challenging and exciting for active tykes.

For hungry monkeys, there’s a little cafe on site serving a variety of snacks and hot and cold drinks. We were happy to see some fresh fruit on offer too! Or you can always wander back to Satay by the Bay to eat your fill of hawker-style goodies.

If your kiddos aren’t in a March school holidays camp — hang in there! We’ve got all the ideas on how to keep them busy through the end of week … from free PJ Masks mall shows to carnival fun at Jurong Bird Park, and photo opps with Paw Patrol at Nickelodeon Fiesta.

In honor of @worlddownsyndromeday, we spoke with Moses Lee, Executive Director of Down Syndrome Association Singapore to get his input on common misconceptions. Keep these in mind, mamas, as we all work towards a more equitable and inclusive world.

It's World Down Syndrome Day today. Let's raise awareness and together acceptance.⁣
We are aware that people with Down Syndrome are the same, deserving of equal rights, equal opportunities and privileges. ⁣
We are aware of what the features associated with Down Syndrome look like, aware of the discrimination and prejudice that people with Down Syndrome sometimes suffer. ⁣
We are aware that the world is not often kind to people with Down Syndrome.⁣
⁣
This year, the global theme is “Leave no one behind”.⁣
We count down the best outdoor playgrounds in Singapore (all free!) and share their top features, from slides to swings to zip lines. Wondering which playgrounds are worth the trip, mama? Watch our video to see our top picks, and let us know your faves! Check out our IGTV or #linkinbio for the full video! @gardensbythebay @nparksbuzz ⁣⠀
