Canopy Park at Jewel Changi Airport has just opened! Indoor playgrounds, Shaw Jewel family cinemas and slides meet green forests, sky-high walks and waterfalls

Jewel at Changi Airport is the talk of the town at the moment. If you haven’t gotten your photo with the world’s tallest indoor waterfall in the backdrop, where have you been? The fab new restaurants at Jewel have us salivating (and queueing!) but there’s now a new reason to visit our Changi (our favourite airport ever) come 10 June 2019: Canopy Park at Jewel Changi Airport.

Kiddos, this one’s for you! Canopy Park on Level 5 of Jewel encapsulates “Singapore, the City in a Garden” with its super mix of greenery (living walls, real hedge mazes, topiary sculptures, landscaped blooms and forests), plus family-friendly fun from cinemas to slides. Think 14,000sqm of aircon cool space complete with playgrounds, sky-high bouncing nets, mazes, restaurants and more. What makes this mall especially family friendly are the free features like free play areas for kids, beautiful baby changing facilities, nursing rooms and free-to-use strollers. Read on for the highlights of Jewel and Canopy Park!

Hedge Maze & Mirror Maze

Need a break from the kids? Lose them in the maze (just kidding!).
