Marina Barrage is Singapore’s first reservoir in the city. It started opening to the public recently.
The first thing I saw when I reached the barrage.
Walking on the Marina Bridge, left my footprint here lol!
The water is so clear! This place reminds me of the romantic Dan Shui harbor in Taiwan.
Can you spot the Singapore Flyer behind me? The round wheel?
Exploring the galleries.
In gallery 1.
"Central to this gallery is the "organic tree". Illuminated by a play of three colours, it symbolises the uncertain state of our present environment..."
In gallery 2. "Rewinding back a few decades, Gallery 2 recounts the clean-up of the Singapore and Kallang River..."
Gallery 3. "...features the Active, Beautiful, Clean Water Programme, launched by PUB in 2007..."
See the programme in action.
Gallery 4. See how the Marina Barrage works with the demonstration of the innovative barrage model.
Gallery 5. The view of the water catchment area for the reservoir.
In gallery 6. This gallery was really dark with lots of tiny little lights on the wall, as if I was in the starry night.
Grabbed a Passion Kiwi smoothie and a snack after exiting from the galleries.
On the way to the roof top.
Walking towards the roof top.
Water playground view from the roof top.
There are such a big grass field in the middle of the rooftop, lots of people having a picnic and flying kites there. Awww, I'd like to fly a kite too!
There was a siren and an announcement telling everyone that they are going to show how the barrage works. So everyone gathered to see it. This picture showed that the barrage gates have opened and the water was gushing out into the sea.
I couldn't catch the sunset view that day, as the sky was getting gloomy as it was going to rain.
