Rasau Walk is a 300m meandering boardwalk which takes you right up to the edge of Jurong Lake. It is a restored freshwater swamp habitat, with over 50 species of plants. The wetland habitats are inundated with water based on the rise and fall of water levels in the lake, creating zones for water birds to feed and forage.

Lakeside Garden, the 53-hectare western portion of Jurong Lake Gardens, is now open! Come join us at the third national gardens in Singapore, and the first national gardens in the heartlands.

The picturesque Grasslands is a 3.5-hectare area dominated by tall grasses. There are six different species of grass, and around 300,000 plants here. It is an important habitat for small bird species that feed on grass seeds and seek shelter among the grass. Bird hides located within the Grasslands enable visitors to observe birds without alarming them.

.

Children can explore the 13 different adventure play stations at Forest Ramble – the largest nature playgarden in the heartlands – and emulate the actions of animals found in freshwater swamps.

The Frog Play area is set amidst grasses and enables children to hop from one “lily pad” to another. The “lily pads” are small trampolines that are set in the ground.

.

At Forest Ramble’s Snake Play area, children can climb up a structure that resembles a tree, and mimic the actions of a Paradise Tree Snake scaling a tree.

From the top of the structure, children can enjoy a panoramic and unrestricted view of the playgarden. As they glide down any of the slides, they will feel the joy of sliding down like snakes from a tree.
