Playgrounds are common fixtures that can be found at our parks and gardens. Besides providing your little ones with hours of fun, playing at playgrounds also helps your children develop psychomotor skills, such as balance and agility. Interacting with other children at the playground also helps your children develop their social skills.
Here are some playgrounds that you may like to take your children to:
Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden
Located within the Singapore Botanic Gardens, Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden is Asia's first children's garden, and is dedicated to all the children in Singapore. Children love crossing the swaying suspension bridge, climbing up to the tree house, exploring the Melting Maze, and playing with water at the water play area.
