Join Cicada Tree Eco Place at Singapore’s lovely old garden, a very ‘civilised’ place to start with to get to know your wild side. The level paths and boardwalks here encourage young children, and those adults ‘icky’ about forest and bugs to come outdoors to explore and sense the natural world around us.
The mature grove of Dipterocarps (giant native rainforest trees) by the marsh garden, are awesome living things to just look and wonder at. If you love ‘pow-pow cha’, we’ll show you the ancient Sago tree which provides the crucial ingredient for this drink. Don’t be infected with NDS (Nature Deficit Syndrome), heal yourself by coming out and enjoying Nature!
This easy walk is on level pathways with no stairs.
All kids must be accompanied by at least 1 adult guardian. Kids get info-sheets and native wildlife stickers.
