A Fantastic Children’s Playground

Last year Min blogged about her visit to this playground at Taman Tasik Perdana. Her children called it the Dinosaur Park and so the name has also stuck with us. Well, finally we found an excuse to go. All I can say is “WOW!” My children thinks so too. Can you see their thumbs up?

First there is “Dinosaur Park” section. There is a play structure that looks like a dinosaur and dinosaur shaped plants (T-Rex, Triceratops).

Then there is the “Fantasy Land” section. The play structures are based on fairy tales like The Gingerbread Man, Jack and the Beanstalk, The Elves and the Shoemaker, Dragon In the Castle etc…. They have the stories there for you to read too. The castle like structure is really nice with a high bridge for the children to walk across. Then there is the yellow cage like structure which took me a while to figure out. Only when I viewed it from the proper angle did I realize it was a shoe. If your children likes slides, they will go wild at this place.

Another area are for the swings, see-saws and tunnel-climbing thingy. There is one swing in particular that has two seats and goes around and around (like a merry-go-round). I thought it was pretty special as I’ve not seen this kind of swing at other parks before.
BabyD definitely enjoyed that.

It was a nice break from fis rock drumming sessions.

Overall, it was a nice treat for the children as it was more then your usual children’s park. For parents, there are lots of benches on the side and there are trees to give some shade. If you can tear the children away from the playground, you can venture to the deer park, spice garden, butterfly garden too. However, I think you may have to check their opening times. When we got to the deer park, it was closed. We saw a tram full of children. Unfortunately for us, we couldn’t get on as it was full.

Where is this park? It’s the road right opposite the Tugu Kebangsaan, heading towards Lake Club. Just drive past the Lake Club entrance and you will come to a parking lot. It’s there. You won’t miss it.

Mamas Bag of Tricks:
Even though you frequent your neighbourhood playground, it's nice to visit a bigger, nicer playground once in a while.

So, which children parks have you visited that you consider A1?

  7. mommy of 2 angels:
    Hahaha. You are very observant. I went on a Wednesday, around 11am. It was a cloudy day so not very hot. No children because it's not a holiday or weekend.

  8. Lian, me too have heard so much about this place. Even a taman near my place has a nice playgroup with a nice fish feeding bridge. so we only visit the near one instead. Shud really go to this tasik perdana one day!

  9. Tee loves this playground too. We usually go in the evenings between 5-7pm. I actually prefer the smaller version down the end because it is easier to watch her where as this dinosaur section is DARN BIG.
