Fun Outing to Marina Barrage - WW

Look ! I'm not wet!

My day out with some overseas friends to the Marina Barrage which is Singapore’s 15th reservoir and the first in the heart of our city. They were awed by this stunning attraction which offers panoramic views; and were impressed by the innovative displays in the galleries........ and it is free!

Entrance to Marina Barrage

water playground for the young and old!

On a hot day, visitors can have a splashing good time at the the central courtyard's water playground.

My friends and I had a great time snapping pictures as we were splashing in the water playground. We were soaking wet but our clothes dried fast as it was a hot sunny day. :P

The Barrage /Marina Bridge

The barrage has 9 steel crest gates, each measuring 30m long, built across the Marina Channel It separates the seawater from freshwater and acts as a tidal barrier to keep out high tides. The steel gates are lowered during heavy rain to release water from the reservoir into the sea.

View of Singapore Flyer from Marina Bridge

Stroll along the Marina Bridge and take photos with spectacular view of the city skyline as backdrop or rest at one of its eight pavilions.

Making use of the sun's energy ....

Let's go fly kite!

You can have a picnic on this beautiful green roof. The rooftop offers 360-degree unblocked views of the Singapore Flyer, Benjamin Sheares Bridge, central business district and the South China Sea.

Have a cold beverage or a quick bite at one of the waterfront eateries. The famous 7th Storey Hainan Charcoal Steamboat restaurant has relocated here.

Admire local and international art works located around the facility.

Learn about Singapore's effort towards environmental sustainability by taking a walk through the Sustainable Singapore Gallery. It also has free guided tours through 6 interactive multimedia galleries with information on water and environmental issues.
