Dubai’s green spaces are a hive of activity and surprises. For example, did you know that Za’abeel Park has a series of monuments dedicated to Dubai’s many twin cities, including a traditional Japanese house as an ode to Osaka? Or that there are camel rides on offer in Mushrif Park? What’s more, there are far more parks in this desert town than you might suspect, covering 7.2 sq km in total. When the temperature is hovering between 22°C and 33°C we like to pack a picnic and investigate the city’s very varied public gardens, especially when we’re saving Dirhams – most parks cost less than Dhs5 to enter.
