As the name implies, Eco Green Park is a grand park mostly covered with big trees and greenery, where we can have a fun family vacation while educating ourselves with ecology and green living.
There will be a lot of walk to explore this 6 hectare park, thus, we prefer to rent an e-bike. It is fun to ride it, although the rental is a bit expensive, Rp. 100,000 for 3 hours.
Since Eco Green Park’s motto is Fun and Study, we believe the
attractions in this park fall into 3 types: education, games, and
The first exhibit is the Insectarium with the scorpions as the welcoming party. A staff will introduce us to these scorpions. They still look deadly although their toxic had been removed. We will find more insects inside the insectarium, both alive and preserved. They are all exotics in their own way.
Next we will meet a lot species of birds:
The second part of this park’s attractions is the learning zone, where the trained staffs show us how to
In between exhibits and learning, we have fun playing games :) We can take a car ride in The Jungle Adventure to shoot the poachers, or go on a boat ride to kill the pests in Kendali Hama.
We also can play music by shooting waters to the instruments installed in Music Plaza. If your children love water so much, they also can try the Water Outbound, where they will walk through obstacles. Whenever they fail, they will fall to the pond and get really wet.
Another unique attraction is Rumah Terbalik (upside down house). Everything in this house are put up side down. Unfortunately, I felt dizzy after awhile.
Then, we can take a relaxing ride in Eco Journey to watch dioramas exhibiting the journey of mankind from prehistoric until modern world.
One attraction we recommend to watch is the story of Hanoman in the Dome
Multimedia. The visitors stand in the center of the dome and the inside
walls of the dome is the screen. Then, start paying attention to the
movie, since it will take place all over the dome!
Tired of exploring the park? We can take a break at the food court. Most of the time we will be entertained watching some performances, such as dancing and singing. In addition, there are several snack shops scattered around the park.
Whenever you pass any decoration in the Eco Green Park, please take a closer look. You might be surprised with the materials they are made of. For example, the elephant made of broken televisions and the dragon made of used water bottles.
