“you'll get a good view of the marina bay sands”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

if you like flying kites, this is the place to visit. or if you just want a place to go for a picnic and sick of the east coast park, this is a good alternative. no entrance fee, theres a free shutlle from marina bay mrt station.

“Play area, nature spot and educational resource”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

A great place for kite flying and water sports or just splashing about. It also hosts some concerts and events in the open space. Aside from that, there are knowledgeable guides who can bring you through exhibits that explain the design and function of the barrage as well as general conservation efforts in Singapore.

“Kite Flying”
Reviewed 18 January 2012

The barrage is quite an interesting place if purely for the mechanics of how the Singapore government has managed to block off the ocean and turn the inlet (river) into fresh water. If kite flying is your thing head here on a weekend with your kite or you can buy one from a shop at the Barrage. Take the MRT to Marina Bay and there is a free bus service out to the Barrage. Just follow the signs from the MRT.
