Directions to Marina Barrage
Envisioned by the founder of Singapore, Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew, who wanted to dam the mouth of the Marina Channel to create a freshwater reservoir, Marina Barrage officially opened in 2008 and is today an important source of water supply, a powerful tool for flood control and a popular lifestyle attraction for both locals and tourists alike.
Built across the 350-metre wide Marina Channel to keep out seawater and with a catchment area of 10,000 hectares, the dam is the first water reservoir in the city and the island's largest catchment, meeting 10% of Singapore's current water demand. Marina Barrage is also used to alleviate flooding in Chinatown, Boat Quay, Jalan Besar and Geylang.
Marina Barrage also draws to its Green Roof many kite flying enthusiasts especially on week-ends and is an ideal location of water sport activities such as boating, windsurfing, kayaking and dragon boating.
The open space in Marina Barrage, the Green Roof, Courtyard and city skyline from Marina Bridge opens 24/7. The information counter opens daily from 9am to 9pm.
Admission Tickets: Free access to Marina Barrage and its tours.
