Walking in a penguin wonderland

Experience a typical wintery Christmas this year with the Bird Park as you enter the Penguin Wonderland!

Be amazed as the Terrace’s fountain plaza becomes Snowy Cove – a weekend winter playground for kids aged 4 and above, where they’ll be able to play amidst the white-landscaped covered with snow foam.

Find out how you can WIN exclusive Jurong Bird Park goodie bags!



Don’t miss out on the exclusive Penguin Party! Open to kids 4 – 12 years old, they’ll  receive a free party pack and ice cream during the hour long party hosted by Pengu and Pengy – two fun penguin characters who’ll teach the children a cute penguin dance to welcome Santa. Plus there’s a magic show to keep the kids entertained! This party is by-invitation only, so make sure you look for the penguin mascots at the main panorail station, as they’ll be the ones handing out the all-important invitations

For just 15 minutes each weekend, you’ll also get a chance to catch Pinky, the Bird Park’s Humboldt penguin, who will make an appearance just for the party. After the party, take a look at the newly revamped penguin exhibit where everyone gets a chance to take a shot with Pinky.

Can’t get into the party? Don’t worry, there’ll be other fun activities happening like the penguin-themed face painting, eco-friendly penguin craft activity, and a sand art area. This is also a great chance to teach your kids all about being green and pledge to save Mother Earth with activities and there’ll be a specially-designed button badge for each completed pledge (while stocks last though).

After all that fun, refuel those hungry little tummies at the Hawk Café. This new Café located just outside Jurong Bird Park (that means you can go any time, no admission fees needed!), offers plenty of Asian favourites like Laksa, Prawn Dumpling Noodles, Hainanese Chicken Rice and Vegetarian Briyani. Finish it off with ice cream from Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop. Perfect!

Lastly, bring home a memory of the day with some of the penguin plushes from Feathers and Wings – two of the retail stores within the Bird Park. Plus, you could pick up some really cute Christmas presents at the same time!
