  • The Marina Bay Art Park was designed to host Singapore’s first art park, the Youth Olympic Park to commemorate the inaugural Youth Olympic Games held in Singapore in August 2010. Besides being a connection point between Marina Bay Sands to the Helix Bridge and the Marina Promenade, the design team was briefed to create a park to encourage community engagement.
  • This was done through a rock featuring winning art pieces contributed by 27 youths who won in an art competition sponsored by the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore. Other features include a landscaped maze, featuring a 4.5-metre high sculpture with a figurine of a girl holding a flag on top of a mountain engraved with the words "I want to scale the highest mountain in the world" and an area with interactive ‘hop-scotch’ lighted floor tiles.
  • During the daytime, use of shady elements – sculptures, gazebos and mature trees – offer comfortable resting areas. Whereas, during the evening, strategically-placed and energy-savings LED lights highlight key features of the park such as the art installations and sculptures.
  • The Marina Bay Art Park complements the Marina Bay development through the promotion of art, culture and community integration. The Art Park is a peaceful area during both day and evening for those who enjoy art, nature, or simply to enjoy the good vantage point of the city skyline overlooking the brightly lit Helix Bridge, Gardens by the Bay and Marina Bay Sands.
