S'pore's largest outdoor wonderland
INTEGRATED retail and office development Westgate will house Singapore's largest outdoor playground in a mall when it opens at Jurong East around Christmas this year.
Called Westgate Wonderland, the 11,000 sq ft playground will consist of a large garden with gigantic insects, musical flowers, a 10m-tall tree house, an enormous watering can that sprays water, and oversized replicas of flora and fauna. The playground on level 4 of the mall is free.
A supervised play area for children aged four to 12 called Kids Club will be housed on level 5. It will feature a 4,600 sq ft outdoor playground, an indoor clubhouse and a reading corner stocked with books on loan from the National Library Board.
Ms Wee Su Lin, Westgate's general manager, said the concept of the playground could possibly be a first in South-east Asia.
