You are here because you are probably trying to figure out how to get the Marina East Desalination Plant and its green roof. We are assuming that you are interested in the publicly accessibly recreational spot, rather than the actual desalination plant itself.

Well, here is a guide on where the Marina East Desalination Plant and its green roof are located and how to get there.

The publicly accessible Marina East Desalination Plant and its green roof are located at East Coast Park Area A. This is the section of East Coast Park that is closest to the city.

It is along the Park Connector Network. From the road, you can see it if you are turning off the East Coast Parkway (ECP) on to the Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE).

Don’t be fooled by trying to search for it on Google Maps and asking for driving directions. It may lead you to the Marina East Desalination Plant’s Site Office along Marina East Drive. This is NOT accessible to the public and you can’t reach the publicly accessible area this way.
