Officially opened in 1 Nov 2008, Marina Barrage is a dam built across the Marina Channel to create Singapore’s first freshwater urban reservoir. It’ll help Singapore to become self-sufficient in water by 2061 when its water agreement with Malaysia ends.

The Marina Bridge (dam) holds the nine crest gates that control water flow at the mouth of the Marina Channel. It also serves as a flood-control gate.

Er? The Singapore Flyer again? Yes! You can have a very nice view of the city from Marina Barrage.

The $226 million Marina Barrage is also a major lifestyle and tourist attraction! Many families visit this newly opened recreation centre over the weekends. The Colourful water jets add elegance to this amazing new architecture.

Get wet! Happy children running around the fountain, playing with water.

The Pump House in the background contains the 7 massive water pumps.

Marina Barrage Visitor Centre with sloping open green roof for the public to access and enjoy the surrounding view.

It’s the first time I see such a nice view of the city from the opposite bank. It definitely looks better than this picture! :P

Another bridge for a leisure walk out into the sea!

The Solar Park is the largest in Singapore. It provides electrical power for the site.
