Marina Barrage is a realization of a vision twenty years ago. It is built across the mouth of Marina Channel, creating Singapore's 15 reservoirs and boosting Singapore's water supply. It has become a hot spot for recreational activities
The idea was first started nearly 20 years ago, when the then Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew envisioned damming the Marina Channel to create a freshwater reservoir. And so he created Marina Barrage.
The colossal architectural building will serve Singapore as a vital water source. It acts as a barrier to alleviate flooding in the low lying areas of the city.
The Barrage forms Singapore's first reservoir in the city. The Marina reservoir, a 10,000 ha catchment, is the largest and most urbanised of the city's 15 water reserves
Singapore's first urban reservoir at the up and coming Marina South district is a must visit attraction. Visit the Singapore Sustainable Gallery or enjoy the city skline from the grass carpeted Green roof.
Stroll along the Marina Bridge or relax at one of the eight viewing decks overlooking the Marina Reservoir and the panoramic cityscape. You may also visit the largest Solar Park in Singapore covering an area of 1,200 square metres. The 405 solar panels generate electricity used for indoor lighting and power points in the Marina Barrage.
Take the MRT to Marina Bay Station and change to the shuttle Bus or Public bus 400m to Marina Barrage.
