The Far East Organization Children's Garden is a specially designed playground that incorporates motor skills building activities for toddlers and a creative play environment for older children. The Children's Garden is divided into four zones - The Toddler Zone, Rainforest Treehouses, Water Play and Amphitheater. There are two treehouses, a challenging obstacle course, jungle adventures for older kids, a sprawling water play area with motion detectors that detects movements of the children and creates fun water effects and so much more.
Fish Fountain is a water play area within the Toddler Zone for younger kids to splash about in the water. Upbeat music in the background as the fountains dance and children screaming with delight is something that truly makes this place a wonderful destination for kids.
What makes this Children's Garden even more special is that it is completely free of charge for both children and adults. The idea is to provide children with a fun and interactive playground as well as teach them about nature and its significance.
The Toddler Play Zone is a specially designed playzone for children between the age of 1 to 5. The special equipment such as stepping springs, swaybridge and others are designed to hone their motor skills while having loads of fun at the same time. The Fish Fountain is an interactive playzone that encourages toddlers in water play and it has water tunnels and fish sculptures all around.
This zone is specially designed for kids between the age of 6 to 12. There are two tall treehouses and a speaking 130-meter forest trail filled with challenging obstacles such as rope mazes, ladders, slippery dips and many more. The dense canopy of trees allows the children to explore their wildest jungle adventures and fantasies.
On any hot summer day, there is nothing better than splashing about in water and for children there is no better treat than this. Water Play is meant for children between 6 to 12 years of age. The Water Play zone has special motion sensors that detect movements of the children and respond with an exciting burst of water sprays and fountains.
Once the children are done with playing in the water adventures and other creative games, they can head to the Amphitheater for a little rest in between the fun and games. The capacity of the amphitheater is 300 pax making it an excellent venue to organize educational events.
