As the situation revolving around Covid-19 is still very fluid, schools that visit our parks during this period will have to adhere to our set of guidelines adapted from the Government:
 
  • Pre-book timeslots for your visit at least one month before. Timeslots are subjected to availability. 
  • Maximum 50 pax per school group per day (inclusive of adults).
  • Keep to a group size based on prevailing government's advisories (including children and infants)
  • No inter-mingling between groups even if they are from the same school
  • Maintain a safe distance of at least 1m apart from each group
  • Keep your masks on at ALL TIMES in the park
  • All (except children below 6) to log park visit with SafeEntry
While this arrangement may be of inconvenience to the school, it is our duty to ensure that the Safety Management Measures (SMM) are met in our premise. Thank you for your understanding and keeping our parks safe.
