It is recommended not to use the playground after 10 am or before 4 pm, because the temperature can be hot enough. It is because there are no trees or canopies to protect your kids from sun rays.

There is no yoga mat provided. There is also a restroom facility inside the crystal gym equipped with closets and some room also equipped with bathtub. But when I saw the restroom, I saw “no entry” sign on the door of some restrooms. I think, the restroom inside this crystal gym is still on development.

If you want to use this facility, you have to use your access card and fingerprint. So, I just saw the fitness center from the outside.

Like other facilities, The lounge is accessed by the access card and fingerprint.
When I visited the lounge, there is no one use the lounge. I think it is because I visited the lounge at noon, so many residents are still working. But when I visited the bar, I saw there is no bar equipment like dish rack, stoves, and glasses. There is also no both lounge and bar staff found in this place. I think this facility is still under development.
