They need a garden. Errol and his sister Tia search through their block of flats for the perfect space and discover a neglected rooftop full of rubbish. After Errol and Tia clean up the space, they imagine building a community garden, but first, they will need to convince all their neighbours to pitch in and help.

        Hidden Park with Playgrounds in the North - Vista Park

        Venue: Vista Park, Between Blk 581 - 584 Woodlands Drive 16
        Opening Hours: 24 Hours
        Admission: Free

        Before there was the Alice in Wonderland playground at Dawson Vista, the OG Alice in Wonderland playground was actually at Vista Park, Woodlands. While the playground is still open to families, it has undergone several revamps and has lost much of its original Alice in Wonderland structures. 

        While the play venue is not new, it offers different play structures and equipment suitable for different ages - plus it is not as popular as other parks in the area, thus we really love to let more parents know about this hidden gem! So bring your little ones to Vista Park to play at the treehouse play structure, conquer the obstacle course, navigate through the toddler's playground and more!
