SINGAPORE — Looking for a new place to dump your children while you get a much needed dose of retail therapy?

Come Christmas, an 11,000-square foot outdoor playground will open its doors to young shoppers (and their parents) at Westgate, an integrated retail and office development in the heart of Jurong Lake District.

Westgate Wonderland claims to be Singapore’s largest thematic outdoor playground in a mall, and will be open to the public for free. The playground will have dry and wet areas, play zones catering to children of different ages, and will feature a larger-than-life garden with gigantic insects, musical flowers, a 10-metre tall tree house and an enormous watering can. You know, cos plants need water, right?

“We envisioned Westgate as a mall that goes ‘beyond shopping’ — a gathering place for the community and a place where families come to enjoy themselves and spend the day,” said Ms Wee Su Lin, General Manager of Westgate. “We thus anchor the mall’s family and lifestyle mall positioning with a dedicated family zone on Level 4, where the centerpiece will be Westgate Wonderland. Apart from its large area and customised play exhibits that weave a storyline, the playground stands out with its unique night-time play experience accentuated by special lighting and sound effects.”

In addition to Westgate Wonderland, the mall will also have a Kids Club, a supervised play area for children aged four to 12, with programmed activities including obstacle races and treasure hunts.

Jointly developed by CapitaMalls Asia, CapitaMall Trust and CapitaLand, Westgate is slated to open before this Christmas.
