Rochester Park – The Playhouse

My company organised a family day for staff last weekend. This is the first year I decided to go for it mainly because of Xi En!

We had the cosy event at Rochester Park – The Playhouse. It is tucked in a quiet corner within Buona Vista.

Parking is relatively easy followed by a short walk to the premise.

Because it was a company’s event, the organisers pumped up a bouncing castle (some sort) for the little kids.

It was Xi En first time in such structure and thank God there weren’t many kids in there; otherwise he will probably be bounced upon instead! haaa… Open-mouthed smile

There was massage service, a magic show for the kids, balloon sculpture man and face painting for the kids. But Xi En wasn’t the right age to enjoy all these yet.

Instead we brought him here:

This is the “nursery” or play area for little kids. It is like our church’s nursery except bigger with more activities corners and toys. Smile 


There is a costume corner:

 Xi En loves this place! Look at him trying to wiggle out to the toys when I tried to take a photo with him:

 For the older kids, there is a Wii and play station room as well:

 Overall I think it is a good place for family events, birthday parties and play dates! Smile There is a bistro for alfresco dining as well.
