Marina Barrage, Singapore

4.3
#16 of 95 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.

  • Excellent spot for kite flying, particularly high-flying single string numbers rather than stunt kites (not enough space and lots of innocent bystanders). Also great for picnics and sunset views of the city. Accessible by means of an elevator. Basic cafe, drinking fountains and public toilets nearby so really family friendly.
  • Beautiful scenery. Hard to get to. Only one bus number goes here. Great for families to enjoy a weekend of kite flying or playing with water fountains here. Beautiful structure of building. Great for wheelchairs as well since lifts are available. Nice for just relaxing and reading or just watching the sky or view. Sometimes events are held here as well so great to see that too. It's mostly quite crowded on weekends. Especially in the morning and afternoons as when evening time comes near the view is harder to see. There are small shops around too. And there are a few restaurants too but a meal is about $6 and above. Great for a romantic time of bonding with the lover. And great for families to just be with one another. :)
  • Great place to take a pit stop while on long rides. When there is a good wind it is great for flying kites. Good for family outings and picnics. Toilets are great but not much in terms of convenience store so pack properly
  • Great place to have a picnic with family and friends, plenty of open spaces for kite flying, seafood restaurant selling tasty stir fry dishes at affordable prices at the ground floor. You can also get a good rooftop view of the central business district, Singapore Flyer and the Singapore River. There are also dedicated lanes for cyclists.
  • What an ingenious way of creating a family-friendly outdoor space within a functional area (ie. reservoir, water storage, flood control). This curvaceous structure is beautiful, offering a breathtaking view of the city from afar (especially at night) and generous space for picnic and kite flying. The area is also connected to a food court (Satay by the Bay), the Gardens by the Bay, and the Marina Sands... all accessible by foot or bike.
