Situated between Al Wasl Plaza and Jubilee Park, the Expo 2020 Water Feature combines the elements of water, earth, and fire in a way that both surprises and delights. The monumental water feature ebbs and flows in the midst of a 40-meter-wide garden of towering palms and fragrant plants.
130 meters is the width of the domed steel trellis that encircles the Al Wasl Plaza. The dome stands 67.5 meters tall, enclosing 724,000 cubic meters of space. The dome’s 22.5-meter crown weighs 550 tonnes.
