Been to qianhu once. Both my children didn't really like the place. The place also quite far from anything. Haven't tried The Animal Kingdom though. Maybe one day will go and check out the place.

My children likes the small pond where they can catch fish. Slowly these venues are disappearing and all we are going to see is buildings and buildings.

 

Now I just bring them to the botanic garden or sometimes the zoo. Science centre also a good place but go too many times also sian.

Such places is a destination that it has to be good to attract people to keep going back, not easy to sustain if you are the only thing there.

Used to go there when staying in Sembawang Close few years ago.

 

Peaceful and not too remote ...

 

Well, more and more of these are getting extinct now... soon, our next generation will only know how to stay and play indoors..... sad

Din know is closing down. Went there to eat 2 weeks ago... Food was really bad.

 

Can't hold a candle to the Sembawang Bottle Tree Village that closed down long ago.

Bottle Tree Park to get new features
29/07/2014 on mypaper
UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT: Fullshare Group, a Chinese company, secured the lease for Bottle Tree Park's site with a bid of $169,000 a month. The firm will invest $5 million in a redevelopment. (PHOTO: THE STRAITS TIMES)
THINGS will never be the same at the iconic Bottle Tree Park.
For one thing, it may have a new name.
Furthermore, its management is being taken over by a Chinese company that has offered to pay a far higher rental than any of the other bidders.
It plans to develop a leisure park after Bottle Tree Park is shuttered next month, Lianhe Zaobao reported yesterday.
Apparently, the rustic character of the area will be retained, the report said, but several new features will be added. The redeveloped attraction is to start operation at the end of this year, or the beginning of next.
After the lease was extended many times, the site in Lorong Chencharu was finally put up for redevelopment.
Fullshare Group secured the lease with a bid of $169,000 a month.
This amount is more than double the guide rent of $72,200 listed on the tender specifications issued by the Urban Redevelopment Authority and $47,000 more than the next highest bid of $122,000 by Sinflora (S).
The tenure is three years, with an option to extend it until April 2020.
The company is planning a leisure park on the 51,500 sq m Bottle Tree Park site, with a variety of food-and-beverage outlets, and activities such as camping, fishing and prawning.
It will invest $5 million in the redevelopment, but intends to retain the kampung flavour of the site.
However, the park is likely to be renamed.
Fullshare could use one of the current brands under the company, or create a new brand for the park.
According to its website, Fullshare Group is one of the top 500 private enterprises in China, and it has been expanding its overseas market since 2008. Its interests are in "tourism real estate, health care, medical technology and high-end tourism business development".
The website says the firm has investments in China, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong and Singapore, and it was established here in 2011.
The company intends to set up an overseas headquarters in Singapore, and is investing in several ventures here, it told Lianhe Zaobao.
My Paper reported last month that Bottle Tree Park was going to close. Its last day is Aug 10 and its lease expires on Aug 18.
Bottle Tree managing director Alex Neo told My Paper it had taken part in the tender exercise, but put in a bid of only $68,000.

Pump in $5 million but can start operation end of this year or beginning of next? Plus $169k lease/month, must not only break even within 3-year lease (or plus 3 more) but turn a profit? Must be a very interesting business model indeed.

 

I'll believe it when I see it.

Hard to believe !

Well, they may start to recoup back with carpark entrance fees, or add in some adventures into the park ?!

But, really hard to break even leh...
