Reservoir in The City

The Marina Barrage forms Singapore's first reservoir in the city. With a catchment area of 10,000 hectares, or one-sixth the size of Singapore, the Marina Reservoir stands as the island’s largest and most urbanized catchment.

With so much to see and do, the colossal architectural masterpiece at the heart of the up-and-coming Marina South district is a whole new experience.

Stroll along the Marina Bridge and watch as water surges into the sea when the crest gates are opened. Take a break at one of the viewing decks overlooking the Marina Reservoir and panoramic cityscape. Head up to the the grass-carpeted Green Roof, an eco-friendly feature that helps lower the building’s temperature so that less energy is used. It is an ideal place to revel in warm sunshine and enjoy kite flying or a picnic with a sweeping 360º view of the Singapore city skyline.

After bathing in the sun, kids can soak in the fun and have a splashing good time at the water play area. Visit the Sustainable Singapore Gallery and learn about Singapore’s efforts and achievements in creating a sustainable environment. Fun and interactive, a tour will fascinate both young and old. As you walk around, don’t forget to appreciate the art pieces of local and international artists that depict the environmental sustainability theme.

    A great gallery! I remember I passed by this place when I went to the airport! And wasn´t this also the place where all the Singapore Lomographers organized the "Project 360" not that long ago?

    Thanks guys! I'm actually surprised to see this here because it's one of my submissions for The Great LC-A Race! Anyway, I wonder why is the 1st picture cropped and everything is not in sequence. Oh, my summary of the place is missing too. :(

    @day3hugger: Most are shot with the original agfa precisa ct100. The new ones by Agfa photo don't yield such blues anymore. :(
