Jacob Ballas Children Garden Waterpark


“A Tropical Oasis for Kids: Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden”

Our first focus at the Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden is the safety and well-being of our guests, therefore we’ve implemented the required Safe Management Measures.

Until further notice, the garden will only be able to accommodate a small number of visitors at a time.

When the capacity is full, you may have to wait till there is an opening. Expect to wait between one and two hours. In addition, due to space constraints, the customary 6.30pm closing hour may be pushed back to as early as 4.30pm instead.

For the first time in Asia, there is a garden solely devoted to children’s interests and needs. Life on Earth Depends On Plants’ is an educational and inspiring subject for youngsters to learn more about the importance of plants. Through exploration and hands-on activities, children may learn more about plant ecology and our environment in a natural setting.

There is a farm, orchard, and a woodland with its own stream and ponds for children to explore and play in the Garden. In addition to the suspension bridge and nature play areas, our aspiring naturalists may stroll along the stream and climb into the tree homes, while our urban gardeners can watch how plants develop and pick up some gardening advice. For a day, explore the Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden as a “Adventurer,” “Gardener,” or “Naturalist.”

Afternoon to evening: 8.00am to 7.00pm (last admission at 6.30pm) On Mondays, the Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden is shut (except when it falls on a designated public holiday)

At the Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden’s entrance, you’ll find refreshments.


Admission is free. For youngsters ages 14 and under, Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden is the place to be. An adult must be present for children under the age of 12. For the safety of children, adults are only allowed access when accompanied by a kid. Entrance to NParks is restricted to adults without children unless escorted by a member of the NParks personnel.
