- It is very difficult for me to keep track of both kids there.
- It is freaking HOT!!
The rooftop playground at JEM on Level 5, called JEM Play.
The signed said it was meant for children aged 5 to 12, but I actually found this playground better for younger children. The play structures were all pretty short, I didn’t think 12 year olds would find them particularly interesting?
My two-year old had no problems playing here.
Now, there is something I need to warn you about this playground. See this green structure?
It has water running through it. DO NOT LET YOU KIDS RUN OVER AND SIT ON IT UNKNOWINGLY.
The first time we were there, MY ran over, sat on it and got his shorts all wet!
But of course, if you do not mind your kids getting wet, just remember to bring a change of clothes.
This playground does not look like much compared to Westgate Wonderland. So why do I like it here?
Reason #1: It is sheltered.
Look at those gigantic fans. It was there at 12 noon on a mighty hot afternoon and I didn’t feel hot standing under the shelter!
Reason #2: It is just beside the food court.
Which means you could be sitting in the air-conditioned food court sipping a kopi while watching your kids play outside. I am adding this to my ‘Eateries with Play Areas List“.
In a hidden corner, there was a rope structure which was suitable for older kids. However, it was not fully sheltered.
My 4 year old sure had fun at the rope structure!
If this playground is not enough for your kids, check out these other activities for kids at Jurong East:
