    The playground has a range of equipment suitable for children aged between two and 12. 

    Wheelchair-friendly play equipment are also available, such as the Neo ring, an interactive game station installed at waist-level that gives wheelchair-using children easy access to play it.

    A yellow and blue Cosy Cocoon sits in a corner, serving as a space to escape from overstimulation, which some children with special needs may face after intense play.
