[Update 1 July 2016 ] Besides being the first mall with an integrated urban park, City Square Mall is also an eco-friendly mall that boast a series of kids and family friendly features.
City Square mall update their L1 playground. This playground is specially designed for children between 2 to 12 years old and encourages play between children with and without special needs.
At the same time, this will help children without special needs to learn and accept differences and have comfortable social interactions with children with special needs.
Thee playground includes a wheelchair-accessible merry-go-round and two inclusive swings.
Being committed to environmental sustainability and conservation, the playground was refreshed using materials that were responsibly sourced from sustainable sources.
The garden is call City Green, and is right outside the mall.
There are clear signs everywhere on green features and plants used. There is also a huge Angsana Tree that was conserved through the construction phase.
The musical fountain in the basement is right outside Mac Donald’s and Coffee Bean. It is also sheltered by the green roof which have solar panels installed yet letting natural lights though while reducing heat. Plus the green roof also include a rain water harvesting system that harvest water for cleaning and irrigation. Pretty amazing stuff…
While we have a good time when we were at city square mall and learn a few new things …like how buildings can be designed to be more environmentally friendly.
