Even before it was officially open, I took Baby to Westgate Wonderland early this year, in January.
It was extremely child-friendly and fun!
The happy, welcoming entrance:
Just do a gentle slap on the insect prints and you get a nice 'ding' or 'dong'.
Adults are equally, if not more, fascinated by the pretty tulips that glow when melodious sounds are produced.
A few insects for play on display
The caterpillar steps that has since been removed
A pumpkin rocking swing
for which kids queue in sync
A tiny rock-climbing wall that made her raise a white flag
A pink and pretty playground
that got her brave her fears of climbing web-like ropes
just for the thrill of sliding to the ground
A treehouse playground
Climbing down the ropes is such a feat, but nothing stops one who truly wants a kick!
Saw some secondary school kids dashing through the playground though
The 3rd playground: didn't realise it was a cracked flower pot till I walked farther from it!
Children's ultimate delight: the wet area
Without swimwear, she dives straight into the area
Comes complete with a changing room and a blow-dry room!
The Wonderland is definitely worth going. If you had noticed, Baby was in different clothes in the above pictures. We were there 3 times within a month, if not a fortnight, I believe! However, it gets really crowded on the weekends, so if you are a SAHM, do go on a weekday. Of course, bring along a set of swimsuit and towel! And did I mention that admission is FREE?
Where to go:
Westgate Shopping Mall
Alight at Jurong East MRT and follow the sign to 'Westgate'.
