THERE’S more reason for families and friends to head to SM Seaside City as Sky Park launched Sky Play by world-renowned designer Kenneth Cobonpue last Sept. 23.

With a fitting “Alice in Wonderland Theme,” the launch had guests all excited and in awe, as treats and surprises flowed freely. Kids in their quirky cool outfits got to experience the Sky Play first hand as characters from Lewis Carroll’s classic story of a magical world came to life, from the Mad Hatter to Alice herself. A unicycler-slash-juggler, costumed dancers, and a moko jumbie, or stilt walker, entertained wide-eyed guests and gamely posed for selfies.

Since its opening, SM Seaside City has been a place to both friends and family for leisure and entertainment. Now, it continues to deliver its promise of excellence with Sky Park. Located at the topmost floor of SM Seaside City, Sky Park is “an elevated area set amongst a landscape of verdant foliage and soothing water features that offers a myriad of dining choices and a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of city life.”

Children can freely play in Sky Park’s three playgrounds: the Fun and Play, Water Play, and Cobonpue’s Sky Play, which was the highlight of the launch. The award-winning and highly acclaimed designer is known for creating unique and noteworthy furniture and product designs. His masterful way of integrating nature, time-honored craftsmanship, and innovative technologies brings life to Sky Play with its colorful and whimsical design. Children’s wild imaginations can go widely and freely as they play in the outdoors of the mall. Cobonpue’s design fits in perfectly with the sophisticated design of SM Seaside City Cebu by Arquitectonica.

Sky Park can be enjoyed by the young and young-at-heart. Not only does it have playgrounds where children can play, the open area of SM Seaside City Cebu also has three event amphitheaters where mall-goers can chill and relax while listening to live bands and thematic events. These amphitheaters also feature foaming jets and interactive water feature perfect for a picture opportunity.

Sky Park is now open to accept bookings for parties and celebrations. (Vania Mae Lim/USJ-R Intern)
