Grant Associates, the landscape architect practice responsible for the acclaimed Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, has released a short film showing local children enjoying the recently opened Children’s Garden at Gardens by the Bay.
The Far East Organization Children’s Garden provides a one-hectare mix of play experiences for all ages, including water play, rainforest tree houses, ridge top trails and topiary pergola arches all in a special garden setting overlooking the Marina Reservoir. The space encourages playfulness by giving children the liberty to explore, imagine and create within a garden setting that sparks the child’s imagination and appreciation for nature and the environment.
