Putrajaya Playgrounds

On our previous visit to Putrajaya last December, we were quite upset with Marriott Putrajaya Kiddies' World. We had initially picked Marriott Putrajaya over Pullman because Marriott's Kiddies' World looked much nicer in their website. Imagine our disappointment when we got to know that the Kiddies' World closes at 7pm everyday and there are no activities (for kids) available at the hotel ground after 8pm (pool closes at 8pm). Total bummer especially in a place like Putrajaya where kids-focused attractions are very lacking. So, we went back to the basics and took the kids to the public playground available at Putrajaya.

At Alamanda  Shopping Centre itself there is a medium sized playground next to the Parkson entrance at the top-most level (I thought I had snapped a picture of it but can't seem to find it). There is also an indoor playground in progress called VIkids and they have set up a temporary and very small area for kids next to Carrefour entrance. 

During the weekends, it got a tad too crowded at Alamanda Shopping Centre itself, so we headed to the park besides Alamanda Shopping Centre, nearest to Carrefour exit for the outdoor playground. It was quite basic but enough for the kids to spend 10 minutes or so.

Then on the day that we took the Cruise Tasik Putrajaya, we swing by the outdoor playground next to The Souq @ Putra Mosque. The kids enjoyed this playground very much as it has 5 slides and is shaped like a ship. It also has some shade over it so that it is still not too hot even when the sun is scorching. Toilet facilities are not too clean though and there is no dedicated baby changing station so, you have been warned!
