The Marine Parade Planning Area, an urban planning zone under the Urban Redevelopment Authority, encompasses a much larger area, which includes the Marine Parade Housing Estate, the private residential areas in Joo Chiat and in Katong on both sides of Mountbatten Road. The planning area is located south of Geylang, southeast of Kallang, and northeast of Marina East, the latter both of which are part of the Central Area. To the east of Marine Parade lies the town and urban planning area of Bedok.
The main public housing estate, Marine Parade Housing Estate, comprises 58 blocks of HDB flats. The public estate is bisected by the arterial Still Road South that provides access to the major highway, East Coast Parkway, leading to the city area and to Singapore Changi Airport.
The main precincts of Marine Parade Housing Estate can be distinguished by the roads serving them:
Marine Parade is served by a town centre, Marine Parade Town Centre, which consists of several neighbourhood shops and a major commercial complex Parkway Parade that houses offices and a shopping centre.
As Marine Parade is primarily either recreational or residential, it is host to a variety of schools.
Marine Parade is also a component division in the much larger Marine Parade Group Representation Constituency, a group representation constituency which elects six members to the Parliament of Singapore. Goh Chok Tong, Senior Minister and former Prime Minister of Singapore, is a Member of Parliament for Marine Parade.
