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.

Reviewed September 11, 2012

From here we can understand how important this barrage is to Singapore; the problems faced by Singapore; and the hard work the government had put in to this country. There are tour guides to guide you. Can have picnic after tour or kite flying. Buy/have lunch before you go there - the convenience store is pricey.

“Free & Easy for family, kids and friends”

Go kiteflying during a windy day or watch the scenary from evening time onwards. It's nice in the day time but it can be very humid & hot.

“Good place for kids to enjoy kites and a water play area”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Not one of the top spots of Singapore but if you have kids they will definetly enjoy the lawn for flying their kites. The water playground is fun and it can be a good start to coll off a bit before you head to Marina Bay Gardens. I would recommend to take a taxi if you want to reach fast.

“Nice views of the City and for kids to enjoy”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Though it is a little out of the way, a visit to the Marina Barrage in the evening is very nice. Make sure you visit the Museum, even if you are not into 'museums'. Its something different and will just take 15 minutes. Walk along and let the kids enjoy the fountains.

“Lovely place for picnics, sea breeze and kite flying”
Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

Abit out of the way at marina bay. But provides kids play n splash water areas next to the water plant. Above is the open lawn area where many pple have picnics, kite fly and just enjoy the sea breeze and sun!

Can be v hot n humid. Sunblock and lots of water is advisable.
