Last weekend we went to the Marina Barrage for a picnic!
We drove there from Outram and got a little lost due to the new Marina area roads..but after a few wrong turns, we finally arrived!
The place was super crowded, with lots of people flying kites and having picnics too. We quickly found a spot and settled down. Samantha enjoyed the place because it was a nice open space that allowed her to practice walking around. The ground was covered with nice soft (and clean) grass so we weren’t so worried when she fell down a couple of times. There were plenty of little toddlers there learning to walk as well – I took the opportunity to teach Samantha how to make new friends.
Overall, it is quite a nice place to spend a late afternoon. I wouldn’t advice going earlier because it’s too hot and sunny, and you little one may get a sunburn.
One more thing to note is that as there are many kite fliers around, be careful not to have your little one walk into someone’s kite strings!
