Singapore, 10 November 2011 – The world’s largest bird paradise, Jurong Bird Park, will be celebrating the “hatching” of its latest kids’ playground, Birdz of Play, through a series of eggciting activities during an event called the Hatch Day Eggs-travaganza in conjunction with the December school holidays.

Birdz of Play is a colourfully themed play area, with wet and dry play areas for toddlers and older children. Kids of all ages are in for a splashing good time as they engage in some wild water fun. One of the highlights is the water play area, which has a huge clambering splash and slide element, where a huge bucket of water will tip every few minutes, thoroughly drenching anyone under it. The dry play area will be a sensory one for kids, as they go though the interactive component, as well as play on the swing, see-saw or flying fox.
