Perhaps there isn't many places for the local to chill with family or tourist to visit in Qatar, this place will see huge crowds of people late afternoon until night especially over the weekend during mild weather or winter. There's nothing much here except beautiful 'quite' scenic turquoise water over new buildings which will play with lights in the night during special occasions and maybe you want to try the ear-blasting arabian music dhow ride (boat) which will take you more or less 20mins around the waters.
The unfortunately thing about this place is the basic necessity such as public toilets are none to be found unless you walked very far and there's only one. Bad if you have small children around. There's only one misrable cafe for you to get hot or cold drinks or chips, and that is very very far if you're parked right after the fishermen boats area or near to the Islamic museum.
Going with cars you might face problems finding for car park during evening especially weekends unless you're willing to park by the road side and watch out for the fast 'i-don't -give - the heck drivers'.
Advice is -- if you're gonna go there with kids, be prepared.
