An illuminated waterfall, that lights up at night, and cascades off of the Dubai Water Canal and is fitted with motion sensors so that it can come to a halt when the ferries float past.
Nine new marine transport stations have been set up in the canal that take visitors on ferry. The Dubai Canal Boardwalk intends to have jogging tracks, seating overlooking the water and lots of greenery. Development on the project is underway to create a waterfront to rival Dubai Marina. The boardwalk within the Business Bay area will be called the Marasi Business Bay Promenade, consisting of a 12-kilometer walkway and leisure areas, giving visitors ample space to stroll, jog and enjoy the surrounding areas.
Here, the region's first purpose-built yachting destination, floating restaurants and cafes, five marinas, over 1,250 berths, onshore boutiques and entertainment facilities will reside. The project will also enclose unique water homes with pools, promoting residence and business floating on water. The project will be divided into three areas; The Yacht Club, The Pier and The Park.
