Very good selections of restaurants and shops but not much for kids. You can take good walks around the Canal and enjoy the views. Marriot hotel and Colosseum Luxury Hotel are at a walking distance. Very safe neighbourhood

Definitely a world class shopping mall. I have shopped from canal walk many times and I must say it's convenient, organized, centrally located and filled with many options for shoppers.
