Officially opened on 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.
