Asia's first garden dedicated solely to children, Jacob Ballas Children's Garden is themed on 'Life on Earth Depends on Plants'. It aims at educating and instil a love for nature at an early age. The entire garden is a nature-learning environment, fashioned in a way so that children can delve deeper into the ecology of plants and the environment. It actively promotes discovery and experiential learning. The garden offers an exploration and adventure space for children. It has a play area with a farm, an orchard and a forest with its own stream and ponds. The kids are free to explore the suspension bridge and the nature-play-area. Tiny naturalists have the liberty to walk along the creek and climb into the tree-houses. The children are also shown and encouraged to observe how plants grow and take home some gardening tips.
The Jacob Ballas Children's Garden hosts Botanic Gardens Children's Festival. In this two-week long festival, children get to learn about farms, compost and propagation techniques. Kids are open to participation in daily hands-on activities and demonstrations. They are taught about the numerous uses of plants. The festival encourages children of all ages to get in touch with nature through play, craft, investigations, storytelling and walks. During weekends, the festival hosts activities, performances and movie screenings at the Eco-Garden. Picturesque horticultural settings are displayed here. It also has activity booths for fun-filled weekends where games and winning prizes are up for kids.
