Jacob Ballas Children's Garden

I visited the Jacob Ballas Children's Garden sometime in August. It is part of the Singapore Botanic Gardens, only open to children up to 12 years old. And adults who do not bring any kids along cannot enter the garden. So when my brother wanted to bring his girls there, I decided to tag along. Or else I have no chance to go in. :)

A few shots out of the many trees and plants in the gardens.

Some nice areas, including a small suspension bridge. Even the toilet is so green with the plants

The cave with small waterfall. Nice photo area.
And a small pond with floating platform.

Caught sight of a squirrel (lower right photo).

Fun areas for the children.
A playground, a mini maze, sand area and waterplay area.

A small cafe at the entrance for light refreshments.

JBCG is at the Bukit Timah side of the Botanic Gardens. With the opening of the SMRT circle line, it is now easily accessible with public transport. Just alight at the Botanic Gardens station.
