Attraction details
Owner description: Be captivated by the bright lights of the Singapore Flyer and the Central Business District skyline against the sky at sunset, reflected in the still waters of the Marina Barrage. This Reservoir in the City was created with three key benefits, to provide water supply, flood control and a lifestyle attraction.

The Marina Barrage is an excellent place to catch the night view of The Singapore Flyers, Marina Bay Sands as well as the Benjamin Sheares Bridge. On top of the night view, you can hang out with your friends and family at the barrage for pinic or kite flying at the spacious green field. Parking is free and rest rooms are conveniently located on the ground level.

The Marina Barrage is a wonderful, serene place to get some exercise done, walk the dog, fly a kite or have a picnic. Lots of open space and greenery and the educational exhibition (free) provided an excellent place to cool down from the heat of Singapore. The roof garden (free) in particle is lovely... great views all around! Plus, the area is wheelchair friendly.

First saw it on tv as it was a pit stop in Amazing Race Asia. It's a dam, something like the Thames Barrier in London and was built to control the river water level and prevent floods. The most interesting exhibit in the very educational and well designed first floor gallery was a mechanical scaled-down model of the barrage with water and all to show how the dam functions. The building with its curved ramp that one can walk on up to the top/green roof and the views from it are quite spectacular and the best thing is that it's all free. Certainly worth a visit and it's very close to Gardens By The Bay.

The family drove there on Sunday evening. Had to wait about 10 mins for a parking lot. There were quite a number of cars waiting but the turnover was quite fast.
Lovely view of the Singapore Flyer, the Central Business District and Suntec.
The rooftop field was pretty crowded - many groups with picnic mats full of food & beverages, a couple of dog owners, lots of kite flyers running around trying to get the kites up and flying, a few frisbees. People were gathered just there, determined to enjoy each others company while enjoying the view & the breeze.
At the ground floor, children can have fun at the water jets & fountains. More than enough room for all. We enjoyed a slow & relaxing evening.

A very interesting concept to open up a public works facility as an attraction. Learn about Singapore's water story, whilst roaming the roof terrace and barrage itself to enjoy wonderful views of the Singapore city skyline.
