For someone who travels frequently by MRT, Marche at 313@Somerset is a great find for me! While most eateries with playgrounds are situated at really inaccessible places which require a car or taxi to get to, or require a hike from the nearest MRT (which means no-go during rainy days and don’t-feel-like-going on hot sunny days), this one is situated right above the MRT station… Come out of Somerset MRT and Voila! You’re there!
The play area here is called Heidi’s Hut. There is a section with toys like a train table and bead chaser which are great entertainment for toddlers like MF. This section is in clear view from the tables surrounding the play area, so you can enjoy your meal while watching over your kid.
There is another section through a doorway, which is for older kids. It is a two-storey play house, which is pretty dangerous for toddlers IMO. From the second storey, kids can slide down the fireman-pole or climb down a vertical ladder, but for toddlers, it is a falling hazard. So the moment MF ran into this section, I had to abandon my meal and dash in to make sure he doesn’t fall.
After a while, it got pretty tiring getting up from the table every time MF decided to enter the ‘danger zone’.. But at least I managed to do some proper eating during the moments when he was occupied by the train table.. And another big plus about this place is that the play area is air-conditioned! 🙂
There are limited tables surrounding the play area, so if you intend to dine there with your kids, it is recommended that you call in advance to reserve a table next to the play area.
