Marina Barrage, Singapore

4.3
#17 of 70 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.

  • An amazing place. The dam seperates the 5 rivers from the bay, keeping fresh water in and sea out. A really green design and a great place for views of the city. Worth a visit.  more »
  • It is a very nice place to have view over the Marina. Moreover, you can clearly see the dam that divides Marina Bay and the ocean. After a walk through the different gardens, it is nice to have a rest...  more »

  • Take a slow walk from marina bay sands, walking over to Singapore largest flower dome and gardens by the bay, next you will walk pass the satay by the bay where you can have tasty food here. The marina barrage is a really beautiful picnic area for families to enjoy a relaxing and windy day. The place is filled with large clean grass patch. Set a date with your love ones or just stroll around is really nice.
  • A nice place to fly small kites, but the shelter is rather lacking whenever the rain comes, or if it gets too sunny. Also a pretty good view of part of out city skyline, albeit it's not easy accessing from the nearest station. Driving there or by taxi is highly recommended.
  • This is a very calm clean open airspace that is within a short walking distance from Marina Bay Sands, the cloud forest, Gardens by the bay, a museum that was built to look like a flower, and the flower Dome. The entire area has a very calm soothing positive energy to it. This is the perfect place to come and relax... fall asleep on the grass, practice yoga, or walk around and look at all the different flowers and plants. There were several restrooms all over the area, and they were all clean. There is also a bus style tram that will take you from one end of the area two the other.
  • The grass rooftop is a great place to chill and hang out. Kids will love the open space. Great all round view of the city and open sea. Open space next to the place is great for flying kites.
  • The rooftop level 2 is a beautiful place where we can see open sky without any high rise buildings. Children can play in grass. We can see ships docked in open sea. There is a restaurant below and a shop selling Kites. It's a popular place for people to fly Kites. There is a nice fountain at level 1 and toilets. Good for a family or team outing / picnic for afternoon and evening.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
