#17 of 119 in Parks in Singapore
Go kayaking or take part in a dragon boat race at Marina Barrage, a functioning dam and lifestyle attraction. This dam was built across Marina Channel to form a reservoir in 2008 to keep out seawater, provide fresh water, and protect the region from floods. Aside from this function, it is also a center for outdoor entertainment and water activities, including boating and kayaking. The reservoir offers visitors a safe, steady body of water, as well as plenty of green space for picnics or kite flying.

  • Extremely awesome picturesque from the barrage. Very easy navigation. Fireworks at the National Day celebrations are spectacularly visible.
  • Nonetheless, it is still quite an enjoyable experience. On really sunny days, consider bringing an umbrella, lots of sunblock, or even a portable fan. My only qualm is that it is really difficult to get to by public transport. There is a shuttle bus from the MRT, but the frequency is pretty low, so you might have to take a cab or drive!
