Dear Prime Minister,

I went to Marina Barrage on a hot Sunday afternoon. I saw many families with children playing at the pool and fountain on the ground floor (quite a few Malay families). There are also families flying kites on the roof top (Mainly Chinese). It was a perfect scene of happy family outing. I feel good for what PUB has done.

Presently, most of our parks do not have ‘Play” element in there. I wonder if we can build more such water theme park in our existing parks and also provide open space without trees for kite flying.

If we can attrack more family outing in our parks, we promote better family bonds.

Provide facilities for those who cannot afford to go to Resort World Sentosa will also close up the gap between the rich and poor.
Thank you.

Lam Joon Hin

the toilets at Marina Barrage do not fit the park (like 2-star toilet in a 4-star hotel). they are stuffy, small and very wet, i believe due to parents changing their kids who played at the fountain. it can be dangerous if someone slips.

perhaps a separate changing facility where parents can change their kids out of their wet clothes will be good. the relevant authority will have to figure out where to build the changing room though :p
