We decided to check Al Majaz Waterfront last weekend to see how that normal Corniche sidewalk was transformed. It's great! With vibrant colors, the atmosphere is lively and upbeat. Most of the cafes and restaurants are now open (and are jampacked) - TGIF, Pizzaros, Fatburger, Caribou Coffee and Tim Horton's to name a few. I'm a bit concerned though, when dining outside, water splashes INTO your food - and we know how Corniche water is not so clean yeah...
Of course the dancing fountain... It wasn't bad. A show is good for more or less 3 minutes. I think Mall of the Emirates dancing fountains (before Dubai Mall's became famous) has better 'choreo' and beats ;-) If you've seen Global Village's colorful dancing fountain - it's like that. Not really bad. This park gives Al Qasba a run for their money. Think of it as Sharjah's version of JBR's The Walk.
Fountain show timings every night are as follows:
7pm, 7:30pm, 8:30pm, 9pm, 10pm, 11pm
On weekends, there's one extra show at 12midnight.
Here are more pics.
