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.

“good weekend trip with family!”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Here, there is a wide variety of family-oriented activities, both for educational and recreational purposes. For instance, there is an exhibition which details how the dam system works (with a mini replica of the entire system in the heart of the exhibition hall). Apart from that, it is a good site for kite-flying and having picnics too! It offers a different side of Singapore as it is relatively well-tucked away from the Central Business District but yet not too far such that one can soak in the skyline of Singapore from another angle in the evenings. However, one must take note that there are limited dining options at the barrage and it would be good to come prepared with food and beverages!

“Clever engineering”
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”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

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.
