Jacob Ballas Children's Garden

We went to the Jacob Ballas Children's Garden at Bukit Timah Road this morning as it was a public holiday in Singapore. Blossom got up real early and was really excited about the trip. She woke up at 6.3oam which is an amazing feat for her!

Lovely place for children (up to ages 12). Lots of plants to check out, and with playground, water play area, sand pit, plus this huge treehouse.

This exhibit was on photosynthesis and plants as a factory.
Blossom was also amazed by a 100-year old tree that was struck by lightning and which had roots as huge as walls. They had a rocking good time at the suspension bridge too.

We found this a great place to bring the children too and admission is free. Besides having fun, they get to see plants and trees which they would not see at usuall places. We spotted a cotton plant (which they found it interesting that it would end up to be their T-shirt), peanut plant, tapioca, banana, plantain (which I also mistook as a banana plant)... it was education for them (and for me too!)

Hi FwF,

Yup! The gals really enjoyed it! Seems that they are not bothered by the sun, sweat and the sand. :P
