We didn't know what to expect and only decided last minute to visit this place when we alighted at Marina Bay MRT station and found nothing else nearby. There is a bus stop near which has a free shuttle bus running about every 30 minutes that takes you straight to the barrage - it is way too far to walk and the route is through nothing but construction sites. The bus ride take about 10 minutes.
It's free to enter the place and although there is the informational side of the barrage, we decided to walk up and have a look around. If you don't want to walk up the grassy or paved circular ramp, there's an elevator nearby. There were plenty of local teenagers flying kites and many people having makeshift picnics, or just lounging around. The view of Marina Bay Sands, the Flyer and the city skyline is very good from the top, but it is a long way to go for a look, if you're not flying a kite or having a picnic. We did see a wedding couple taking photos here, so unless you're doing that too, you'll probably get a better view from the top of the Flyer or Sands Sky park.
