sprinkling water dancing with wind is a must watch for visitors in Jeddah

The fountain itself is just OK but the park is a good place for the children to have a good time. Nice place

It is really a nice idea of having this wonderful landmark at jeddah . I can't imagine jeddah without it. In the night the view is spectacular. You can even see it from the airplane while landing at jeddah.

You can see the fountain from almost anywhere in Jeddah, but a walk on the Corniche is highly recommended.

Located at red sea and can be seen from nearby beach park. It must see place at Jeddah and also enjoy your long walk (2KM one way) along the beach park

The fountain is one of Jeddah marks which is used to identify it. Every one visits Jeddah should see it. It can be seen from a distance, but seeing close look is different.

It's just a fountain. Nothing special to make a separate visit. Ok if u r around the area. Corniche is newly built around it.
