Water Play at Clusia Cove Waterpark
Named after clusia species such as the Balsam Apple, Clusia Cove in Jurong Lake Gardens’ Lakeside Garden is a self-contained aquatic eco-system. Jurong Lake Gardens’ tidal play pond is also located here, making it a great spot for families with young children. Jurong Lake Gardens’ Clusia Cove can be found at the far northern end of Lakeside Garden. It’s a system of interconnected ponds meant to resemble a wetland habitat.
In this three-hectare water park, kids may experience water motions that mimic tidal patterns, surface ripples, and directed currents like those seen around coastal shorelines. Clusia Cove Here, water play is combined with learning as students get to learn about the dynamics of water and the natural tidal cycle.
In addition, students may discover how a water recycling system cleans the water they play in using natural treatment techniques. The water at Clusia Cove is in a closed loop circulation that unites the cleaning biotope, water playground and eco-pond.
The cleansing biotope serves as a natural water treatment system that consists of a series of cleansing cells containing sand beds that filter out particulate matter, as well as semi-aquatic plants which absorb excess nutrients from the water and release oxygen, reducing algae growth while cleansing the water. The Common Susum (Hanguana malayanum) performs an important function in water purification, in case you didn’t know. Head over to explore our Plantae cleaning aids.
The water then filters through the cleaning cells into an underground ultraviolet (UV) chamber where it is further cleansed using Active Filter Media (AFM), then disinfected by UV treatment before being pumped to the water playground for guests to play safely.
The eco-pond, a model of a freshwater wetland ecosystem, receives water from the water playground. Here, the substrate surface works as a filter that captures dirt and stimulates the development of beneficial microorganisms. Semi-aquatic plants present in the eco-pond conducts the first round of cleaning before water is fed into the biotope again, and the closed-loop circulation continues, always preserving the water quality.
Have you ever wondered how the name “Clusia Cove” came about? It is called after one of the semi aquatic plants present in the eco-pond, the Autograph Tree (Clusia rosea) (Clusia rosea).
