My family visit Marina Barrage about twice a month on average because it's basically a free attraction. My boys, aged 8 and 3 1/2 years old, love playing in the water (only ankle deep to shin deep). After that, we would walk up the slope...More

We walked here just for the view looking back at Singapore. The barrage was all lit up too. There is a large ramped walkway to the roof of the pump house or a lift or stairs.

This is a great walk and relatively quiet. I got to see the barrage gate opening which was pretty unexciting! The area is free of most tourists and there are some great views out across the water and over to East Coast Park.

Yes you can, in fact there's a cycling/running route from East Coast Park to Marina Bay Sands. You could rent bicycles from one of the many bicycle rental shops at East Coast Park should you choose to cycle. Have fun!
