Dubai Water Canal is the latest addition to the Dubai scene and serves as an extension of Deira Creek and Business Bay. The development consists of three zones: The Green Network, The Water Network and The Public Realm.

The Dubai Water Canal runs 2.9 kilometres connecting the Business Bay to the Arabian Gulf. The grand opening was held on November 9th that showcased Dubai Water Canal's picturesque arches, waterfall and six-kilometre walkway.
