Phantasiegarten by Play!

In partnership with Play!, this multi-sensory art space was set amidst the park to provide fun activities for the young. Through art, the young could express themselves and unleash their creativity in four facilitated different areas from 1pm to 6pm on Saturday 19 August!

People let their imagination run wild and createed their own version of Raffles Place Park with recycled cardboard and corrugated sheets in varying 3D forms. They expressed their creativity using unconventional recycled materials provided at the park such as ropes and textiles along with markers and paint.

The stunning skyscrapers of Raffles Place offered inspiration to young minds.

Children could create models of Raffles Place and skyscrapers or could unleash their inner mural artist and paint or doodle on the cardboard model of key places in Raffles Place.

Of course, the fun was not just limited to the big kids! The little ones could engage in their own mini-play version at a dedicated baby play space. Equipped with simple and safe materials like markers, boxes and smaller wooden blocks, they could join in on the fun and set their creativity in motion.

Soul-ful Movie Screening

The fun continued even after the sun set. From 6pm onwards on 19 August, friends and family together could watch a movie under the stars and kick their feet up in the oh-so-comfy Helinox chairs as they enjoyed a screening of Soul (PG) – a comedic-drama animation film that was perfect for the little ones too.

The first 50 members of the public could pre-register for the movie screening, and grab the best seats in the house along with 1-for-1 pasta vouchers from VIBE.
