Marina Barrage, Singapore

4.3
#17 of 101 in Parks in Singapore
Go kayaking or take part in a dragon boat race at Marina Barrage, a functioning dam and lifestyle attraction. This dam was built across Marina Channel to form a reservoir in 2008 to keep out seawater, provide fresh water, and protect the region from floods. Aside from this function, it is also a center for outdoor entertainment and water activities, including boating and kayaking. The reservoir offers visitors a safe, steady body of water, as well as plenty of green space for picnics or kite flying.

  • When it was lunch on the weekend, it was crowded with local families and the parking lot was also very difficult, so we showed us around before 9pm on Saturday. Still, there were quite a few parents and children who enjoyed kite flying, cycling, and running. The Dam in Marina Bay is also great, but this view is great, where you can see Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay together.

  • we had a bichon club picnic at this barrage and even though the guards say we cant place a picnic table there, we actually went ahead and they didnt chase us away. its a great place for picnics.  more »
  • I used this bridge to pass through one side of the city to the other. I believe your taxi adds six dollars toll to your trip if you use this bridge  more »

  • Very good place to bring family for Activities, picnic, enjoy the natural landscape created by the Marina Barrage dam. Cannot imagine that the Barrage was building on top of sea. The Singapore Sustainable Centre is a must visit at level 2 of the building. Please book early for weekend tour online. The roof top grass land is good for flying kite due to the strong and constant winds from or toward sea area.
  • Another relaxing place where we go to sit and enjoy the view. Also, fireworks during festive times. Great! Bring drinks and food too and have yourself a picnic here.
  • Great place for kiting and eating and taking a break when you need it. The breeze is invigorating an inviting, nice environment, and good to know about Singapore water supply. And of course, this is a must go to when you visit this garden in the city.
  • My favourite place in Singapore. A barrage is meant to control the water levels that enter the docks, but the Marina Barrage is more than just functional, it’s one of the best if not the best community area in Singapore. At the top of the barrage is a green field where you get some of the best 360 views of Marina Bay Sands and the Singapore skyline. You can come here to picnic, read a book, catch the sunset, fly kites, walk your dogs and I’ve even seen people paint here, and propose even. My recommendation, rent a bike and cycle there and don’t forget to bring a picnic shawl, some food and wine. Cause, you’re gonna be staying there for a while.
  • The Marina Barrage rooftop is a great place to have a chill weekend morning or afternoon, and have really surreal family pics to commemorate the memories. :) I recommend to bring your own picnic mats, stools if you prefer to sit, and snacks and drinks you love. Otherwise you can walk down to the Satay By the Bay for grub!
