Our latest Saturday Morning Break was @Sioufi Garden!!
I haven't been to this spot for ages, yet lately I've heard lots of encouraging reviews!!!
So we finally decided to give it a shot...here's how it was!
About Sioufi Garden!
The space location is perfect, and it's quite despite being in the middle of a very busy area! There's security guards on the entrance, visitors are allowed to bring in their own food and snacks, lots of benches scattered here and there, 2 kids playgrounds etc....
It really looks charming, and appealing at the first sight!
However, its not very well maintained: some of the benches were decaying, rusty fence, frail playground installations) where spontaneous plants and litter are taking over, dirty pond, and we couldn't find the promised off ducks!!!
However, the slides are extremely dangerous for the little ones and there's no padding under them...thus we couldn't leave our kids alone fearing of a fall!
Note: Area is not shaded...1st playground located on the right of the entrance is off higher level, garbage smell wasn't as strong as lower left side playground but it was hotter!
Our kids got to enjoy their semi-healthy snacks while enjoying an interacting and age appropriate storytelling under the trees!!
Then we got engaged with a Mommy & Child Origami Class!!
Finally, kids had some free coloring time while bonding with the nature around them :)
Here's a small video of the place!
