Winter is the time when you see people flock to the water canal boardwalk. Although it is comfortable to walk even in the daytime, evenings are undoubtedly the best time in the water canal Walk. As the sky starts to get dark, the water canal lights up. There is light everywhere — in the water, on the bridges, the lamp posts. Even the waterfall looks like a flowing sheet of bright colors.
The boardwalk runs from the business bay to Jumeirah beach road, providing an excellent place for joggers and families to spend evenings. There are three pedestrian bridges over the canal. One of the footbridges called the Tolerance bridge resembles the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. The Tolerance bridge connects the two sides of Safa Park. Apart from the water canal, there is a massive lagoon in Safa Park.
Dubai Water Canal Boardwalk is the perfect place in Dubai for a sunset stroll. It also doubles as a jogging track. The track near the canal is increasingly becoming a popular destination for joggers. The promenade provides access to three bridges over the canal. As you stand on these bridges, you will adore the multicolored waterfall giving way to the boats when they arrive.
Dubai Water Canal will feature a waterfall on the Sheikh Zayed Road bridge, on the side Al Habtoor City. Made up of 80 water pumps, the waterfall switches off when boats travelling on the canal approach the bridge. Apart from splitting in the middle to make way for water crafts, it has an electrically controlled waterfall that stops when the bridge is being lifted. The bridge which is an extension of the Sheikh Zayed Road spans across a 9-kilometer long waterway that joins up with the sea. Dubai Water Canal and its banks cannot be judged by its appearance as there is more to it than the eyes can see.
