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.

  • Well known by locals to be a great place for a relaxing picnic and kite flying, this place has hosted a few kite flying competitions as well. It's not the easiest place to reach though. Can make use of free shuttle bus service and catch the regular SBSTransit bus service to reach here by public transport. It is possible to walk from here to Gardens by the Bay as well though there's one area that is diverted for construction.
  • Great place for kite flying, and there are some gorgeous views of the CBD area to had here, especially at sunset. There's not much else to do here, but the lawn on the roof is an excellent spot for a relaxing picnic.
  • Nice place, but it's always blocked off for events and runs. Great views at the top especially at night. Skip the toilets on the first floor and go to the ones on the 2nd floor. Much........ Cleaner.
  • On weekends, there would be alot of locals who'd be here to fly kites of all sorts. Bring along a picnic mat and some food to savour the sunset hours. From here, you can get a great view of MBS, Singapore Flyer and Gardens by the Bay.
  • It is beautiful and a romantic place to be at night as you will be able to see high rise city building and Singapore flyer with bright colour light. You also able to fly kites and have a small family pinic.
