Marina Barrage is both a flood-control rooftop dam and a stunning park with a gob-smacking skyline view of Singapore, located at the southern tip of the main island, and a short walk away from Gardens by the Bay. Although its primary function serves as a dam, Marina Barrage is rather popular for recreation on its green, roof-top expanse which is always scattered with local flying flashy kites.
The elevated section of grass extends breathtaking panoramic views of the city making it a popular sunset viewing point. Recreational activities like boating, kayaking, windsurfing and dragon-boating take place in the Marina Basin. The Marina Barrage is built on the confluence of five rivers, encompassing the main dam extending from Marina East to Marina South, forming Singapore's 15th reservoir. A Solar Park is located at the dam site featuring one of the most extensive collections of solar panels in Singapore.
The Sustainable Singapore Gallery, located on the ground floor of the barrage, houses interesting images and archival footage of the Singapore River (before its astounding makeover), along with a working model of the Marina Barrage. The Visitor Centre organises tours highlighting the wonderous art installations and sculptures dotted along the entire location.
