Local children share the fun, joy and wonder of the Far East Organization Children's Garden at Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, designed by landscape architects, Grant Associates.
A major new feature of the 54 hectare Bay South Garden, the Far East Organization Children’s Garden opened in January 2014, offering 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 Far East Organization's Children's Garden connects children to nature via technology, art and horticulture," says Andrew Grant, director of Grant Associates.
Bay South is a 54 Hectare garden located next to the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort in Singapore, forming the largest garden at Gardens by the Bay. Grant Associates was the lead consultant for the winning competition entry and the subsequent Master Plan. This lively and vibrant garden showcases the best of tropical horticulture and garden artistry with mass displays of tropical flowers and coloured foliage, sculptural theme gardens, spectacular vertical gardens and two Cooled Conservatories.
