Marina Barrage Water Playground: Reservoir of Splashing Fun

Marina Barrage Water Playground

The Marina Barrage Water Playground entices with a wading pool, vibrant fountains and playful jets of water. With Marina Barrage marking 10 years since its opening in 2008, here is a look at its updated water playground – a showcase of water at play.

Play in the Water

The Marina Barrage is a dam built across the Marina Channel creating the Marina Reservoir. Therefore, it seems fitting that the Marina Barrage Water Playground is essentially a body of water as well – one that invites some frivolous fun.

Marina Barrage Water Playground OverviewYou won’t find any play equipment like water slides at the Marina Barrage Water Playground. Instead, the spotlight is firmly on water as an element of play and it consists of an open and shallow wading pool with four water play sections.

Water Jet Tunnel

Square Water Shelter

Fountain Square

Bubbling Play
