This newest attraction in Downtown Dubai gives you the chance to get up close and personal with the dancing fountain show.

The 272 meter long Boardwalk platform is located in the Burj Lake and runs from the Burj Park towards the Dubai Mall. The floating walkway is open daily from 5:00 PM to 11:00 PM. Admission to the Boardwalk section of the Dubai Fountain costs 5 US Dollar per person. Children under 4 years old can travel for free when accompanied by a paying adult.
