The view is nice, the trip is good. Finding a parking is nearly impossible. Just entering the area is a nightmare on weekends. I recommend enjoying it's beauty from a distance.

Its the largest fountain in the world, you may just go to corniche and enjoy the scenery, life at corniche begins usually after maghrib prayer and then the fountain lights are also lit up which are around 500.this fountain is visible throughout the vicinity of jeddah!!!
