Well organized, well developed, good for everyone, family with kids can enjoy playground or biking. Solo, couples, friends can enjoy cafeteria viewing a nice water view. I was there about 6pm a little before sunset, it was a great time to visit because the weather is cool and breezing. You can enjoy a beautiful sunset.
Highly recommend this place.

There are varieties of options for food, a bit pricy but ok.
We parked inside the park and as long as the food bill is over 100 derhams. We got 2 hours free parking.
They offer car wash service which cost you 20 derhams for SUVs

Sharjah keeps growing on me. Yes it does not have the in your face buzz, but it's quiet charm and friendliness more than makes up. The water front itself is a lovely walk with restaurants, water fountain and occasional shows, and call for prayer in the background. Sharjah maybe conservative to some, but it has a growing art scene with literature and film festivals.

al majaz one of the best places i've visited in sharjah. but they are not using its value.. i mean they have a good waterfront and have a poor quality water fountain. it is a main attraction in al majaz. i think its a good one in starting and because of bad maintenance its like that now. me and all other visitors excited to watch when it's starting the water dance but all are disappointed after watching it.

im sure that if they care about the water fountain more people will visit that place. because mouth publicity is a best review in the world.

The Al Majaz Waterfront is easily Sharjah's most popular destination for residents and their families. Located at the end of Khalid Lagoon, the waterfront offers vast green spaces and plenty of activities to indulge in for everyone.

The waterfront is the best place to enjoy the Musical Fountain show in the evening and is also the venue for the fireworks displays done by the Emirate on various occasions. It boasts of some nice restaurants, a mosque, a couple of children's play areas and lots of open space for picnics. Across the road is a large park as well. There is also a small Sculpture Park and a Trampoline park.

However, there are some issues too. The mini-golf seemed to be closed now. Also, the lagoon itself near the Waterfront is not clean and is a bit of an eyesore. Apart from that, it's a good place to spend quality time with one's loved ones.

We usually go for walks in the evenings to this very beautiful place.However because of Covid 19 most of the restaurants if not all are currently closed.Nevertheless it's a lovely place to enjoy the evening, exercising in some way or the other and enjoying the scenic landscape at the same time

My kids enjoyed the pleasant weather and the various entertainment options . There are plenty of restaurants to choose from, we chose to have our lunch in levantine restaurant. Their food was good and their outdoor seating area had beautiful views. The Abra ride at the end of our trip was exceptional.

We will definitely be visiting again soon

No longer does one have to travel to Dubai for a decent restaurant! Its a pleasure to sit out here in the evening watch the fountain show and order from a nice place. The only pain is parking which is a nightmare on a Friday

Al Majaz Waterfront has been a favourite spot of ours for quite some time and has changed dramatically since the new restaurant and entertainment complex along the waterfront but it has been cleverly developed as it enhances an already beautiful area of the city.

We ate at TGI Fridays one evening and it was such a pleasant experience having a meal in such a lovely setting with Khalid Lagoon as the backdrop. The Sharjah Fountain is spectacular and cannot be critically compared to Dubai Fountains as it is in character with it’s Sharjah setting, we watched the show a couple of times and it was a great experience.
