“Excellent place to hang out with friends and family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

A good place to rest and relax. A good place for kite flying and picnic over the weekend. You can get to see from nature: green grass and seawater to man-made: barage and skyscrapers. Suggest to stay till night time when all the lights of the city buildings are on and you can take the nice picture from here.

“Great backdrop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Fantastic location for photos of the singapore land scape or bridal photos. You can even fly kites on the top of the grassy hill. Visit during weekdays, weekends are a bit too crowded.

“Marina Barrage”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

I felt whoever invented this to control the water in Singapore River was brilliant. I enjoyed looking at how the model works and the miniature Singapore built-up around the bay. I also enjoyed watch kite-flying during weekends.

“A masterpiece of engineering”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

This must be one of the most popular school trips destinations and kids like flying kites on the top of the building with pumps.
Purpose of the construction is to create fresh water reservoir for drinking and recreation and also protect city from flooding (either by rain or hig tide).
Giant pumps which are capable of pumping an Olympics-size swimming pool per minute.
Informative attraction is free and is a pleasant walk away to Garden by the Bay.
