In conjunction with Singapore’s SG50 fiftieth birthday celebration this year, the Jurong Bird Park has come up with a slew of fun promotional activities and discounts for the whole family to have generations of fun.

If you looking for somewhere to bring the whole family during the June holidays, consider visiting the park!

While my wife Rachel is overseas, I brought my parents and my son, Asher, to the Jurong Bird Park last weekend for intergenerational bonding. Asher was happy to have his grandparents along for the trip and thoroughly enjoyed himself despite the drizzly weather.

We managed to catch a show at the park, feed lories at the lories loft, visited various attractions, ride on the tram and even participate in some of the special weekend old school games!
