Singapore's largest thematic outdoor playground - Westgate Wonderland !

It's officially opened on the 26th February 2014 ! Westgate, the first family-friendly mall in Singapore, with the largest thematic outdoor playground. Not only families get to have a great time spending a day of shopping & dining at the mall, young shoppers can now expand their energy at Westgate Wonderland, located on Level 4 of the mall.


Westgate Wonderland with a larger-than-life garden theme, featuring both dry and wet play areas. Definitely a great place for the young shoppers to have hours of fun there and it's open to public for FREE, daily from 10 am - 10 pm.

Be welcomed by the huge and brightly coloured displays in the playground ! Let the pictures do the talking !




 
 
  
We walked further in and spotted this really pretty caterpillar in vibrant, rainbow colours !


Together with the boys, Vera took her seat in the rounded pumpkin !

Walltopia - great for kids like Xav who loves rock climbing ! Ever since his first rock climbing experience at The Rock School, he has been looking forward for more !


He went on further and this time, to conquer the Tree House !




Swiftly, as he made his way up, I couldn't chase after him at all as my jeans hindered my movement but Xav was just having an awesome time, swinging like Tarzen



and sliding down the slides.
 

There is another playground that can be linked from the Tree House.

Imagining to be a fire fighter here !!



Posing among the leaves !

Take a seat on the toadstools right in front of the playground if you need to have a break !


He found more resting stools around in the form of acorns,


tree stump, which reminded him of a story "The Giving Tree" by  Shel Silverstein

 
You can find more benches under the shade of these huge flowers. I would feel that it would be perfect if they could install fans with cooling mists as well.


We moved on to the giant flower pot but uh-oh !

The flower pot's cracked ......



 
 


How cool was it that within the cracked pot, it's another playground ! He's duper happy when he could "stand" on me on this see through panel.
 

 
The interior of the  cracked flower pot contained so much fun !

Remember your wet gears too ! There is a water play area for the little ones as well !



After all the fun, be assured that there is a shower room on the same level for the kids and of course for mummies with babies, do check out their spacious Baby Room, with three or four nursing rooms and changing station available as well as a water dispensing machine for hot / cold water.

So how did the concepts of retail shops in shopping malls come about ? Thanks to the Leasing Managers who planned right from the start to executing their plans ! Here's a short clip shared by Ms Cheryl, Leasing Manager of CapitaLand Mall Asia. Westgate was the project she took under her wing !

Thank you Cheryl & Esther for the fun !
 



Here's a short clip on Westgate Wonderland and Westgate Kids Club ! Enjoy !

@ Sengkangbabies : Thanks for dropping by Andy ! Yes it's all free for Westgate Wonderland but not the Kids Club on Level 5 though.

Good enough to keep the kids happy for hours !
