The use of water whether as a fountain, a pond, a wall with water dripping down it etc is very common and seen in many parts of Dubai. in a country which has high temperatures, water has a very soothing effect.
I have mentioned a number of thse features as individual Things to Do, but add here a few others that I have come across.
1. 'Origami'
is another structure featuring water to be found at Festival city. I came across it by chance in an area that is not as well frequented as others. The feature has several walls with water running down them . The feature is several stories high and in front of it is a pool of water too.
2. a large fountain at a roundabout near Makhtoum Bridge.
