Jurong Bird Park & New Water Playground

I didn’t know that Jurong Bird Park has a water playground until this advertisement pops out on my blog. Coincidentally, I also saw the 30% off Jurong Bird Park adult and child entry tickets on Deal.com.sg. So, I immediately purchased 3 tickets to bring our boy there for some fun.

We went to Jurong Bird Park last Saturday. It has been raining for the past few days, but we decided to take the risk and proceed with our plan. Spare clothes, towels and umbrellas were all packed up, and we were ready to go!

The journey from our home in the North-East to the Bird Park in the South-West took slightly more than an hour. Thanks to the heavy traffic along PIE, the poor Husband was tearing his hair out in frustration trying to navigate the road traffic.

Alas, we reached the park at 1pm and the weather was still good. Much to my surprise, the parking rate here is amazingly cheap. It’s only $2 per entry, I just couldn’t believe it.

The highlight of this trip is certainly the Birdz of Play – the newly opened water playground. Before we head to the playground, we did a brief visit to the birds in the park. Little Edison was delighted to see the penguins, flamingos and parrots.

Our boy was super excited to see the huge playground and water playground. The dry playground is divided into two sections – one for younger kids 4 years and below, and one for older kids. The water playground is next to it.

After one hour of playtime, we felt a light drizzling rain. So, we stopped our activity and went for a shower. There is a main children shower area, but it is unsheltered. There are also shower rooms in the toilets. The toilets are clean and new. There are also lockers and baby-changing room here.

We went for snacks at the Ben & Jerry outlet – just next to the playground and patiently waiting for the rain to stop. After the rain stopped, we proceed to visit the other attractions in this park. By this time, our boy was so exhausted and fell asleep on his stroller.

All in all, it was a fun day despite the rain. The Birdz of Play is indeed very fun for the kids. I like the park because it is less crowded as compared to the Singapore Zoo. But I also expect that they will have a surge in visitors soon after the opening of Birdz of Play.

Here are some pictures to share:
