The Far East Organisation Children's Garden located at the Gardens by the Bay is actually a combination of 3 play areas. This article is written in 3 parts, do start with the Water Play, followed by this article on the Toddler Play and finally the article about The Treehouses.
If you have read or visited the Water Play area, you will probably realise that it is the main draw of the Children's Garden. However, don't dismiss the Toddler Play area that is next to it too and designed especially for kids between 2 to 5 yrs old.
It is also a great alternative if you forgot to bring a change of clothes or prefer not to go into the water!
Dry Play @ Toddler Play Area
The Toddler Play area is actually made up of a dry and wet play. At the dry play, you will find a small playground with low climbing structures and equipment for the kids to climb, crawl and run! There's a little swing, slide, suspension bridge, spring bridge and bouncy rides too.
It's a good area to calm the little ones down after all the excitement playing in the water!

We shared about this in our first look at the Water Play area at the Children's Garden, but the Fish Fountain is actually part of the Toddler Play area. It targets younger kids with fish fountain that squirts water and is suited for younger ones who may not be keen to be at the main water play.
Amenities At The Children's Garden
Located right next to the Toddler Play area is a little cafe that serves snacks and drinks. Great for parents looking to "hide" from the sun, and to grad a coffee or ice-cold drink!
