Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden at Bukit Timah Core
jacob Ballas Children’s Garden is Asia’s first children’s garden. Dedicated to all children of Singapore, it is designed to provide unique discovery and learning experiences in a garden setting.
Through play and exploration, the Children’s Garden will cultivate an appreciation for plants, nature and the environment among the young. It meets the demands for nature education in an increasingly sophisticated tropical Garden City. Developed along the theme “All Life On Earth Depends on Plants”, it is created as a unique and interactive fun place where children up to 12 years of age can discover how plants provide their daily needs. It also gives children a first introduction to the life sciences – an important branch of science as Singapore embarks on life sciences research as a new thrust for economic growth.
Experiences in the Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden will stimulate a sense of wonder for the plant world and provide happy memories for our child visitors.
Refreshments are available at the Visitor Centre, Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden.
