Across the other side of town, towards Dubai International Airport and a little beyond Dubai Festival City, Mirdif is a popular area for families with parents who work in Old Dubai. Residences include Uptown Mirdif, with its own supermarket, food court and array of shops and cafés, as well as apartment complexes. There are several schools nearby, as well as Mirdif City Centre Mall, and the sprawling Mushrif Park (with its own equestrian centre) just a short five to ten minute drive away from most residences.
