Park exploration is something I like to do with little one. Last week, we went to Bottle Tree Park. This is a special park that does not belongs to National Parks Board. It is leased to Bottle Tree Park Limited. Now I am writing this with a heavy heart. I just got to know the lease of this 7 ha land is coming to an end. It is hard to find such a place that has a kampung style with so much fun awaiting for you!
|Serene, isn't it?|
|Walking from Khatib MRT, we locate the Park after 10-15 minutes of walking|
|A sealed water well. The back drop reminds me of the slopes of padi fields in Indonesia|
|I just feel nostalgic when I look at this swing! Reminds me of those swings I used to play with when I was young!|
|My girl was attracted to this LongKang fishing ($10/kid) but she caught none! A kind girl helped her caught 5 instead. A lot of young kids loves to play in this area.|
|A photo with the famous bottle tree which the park is named after. Noted little one had a change of clothes? That's because she fell into the Longkang fishing pond and suffered a slight cut on the knee.|
|We do not know what these were but they looked so pretty|
|A Lotus Pond|
|This is the first time I see Lotus at such close proximity. I din't zoom my lens, I just put my camera closer to it.|
|A Rustic Kampung (Malay for village)|
|Swan Paddling - only open on weekend after 5pm|
As my girl had suffered a minor cut at the pond, I have to cut our visit short. We have yet to discover the rest of the park. They have plenty of Australian flora besides the Bottle Tree. They also have a mini -zoo showcasing pheasants (not sure whether there are some other animals), paintball field, remote car racing tracks.
|Little one seemed to look sad ,with her drooping head , that she had to leave the park. Exactly the same way as I am feeling.|
|Little one was so enthusiastic about rearing fishes, she decided to decorate the tank on the outside, so that the fishes could see them... LOL|
|Our poor fishes died one by one... My hubby decided to get a mini tank, filter and a pump. Now we are left with one fish. I hope it will survive though.|
