Basic but busy park next to Dubai's industrious neighbourhood
The location of this park seems a little odd, wedged in the corner where two roads meet. A sign at the entrance reads ‘families and residents only’, but it’s hard to know which residents. Nevertheless, you’ll still find plenty of families with kids, joggers and the like.
Facilities: Adequate parking, playgrounds, a cushioned running track that skirts the park’s pond as well as some basic exercise equipment.
Toilets: Yes, including a water fountain offering free drinking water
Nature: In terms of greenery, you’ll find grassy lawns, flower beds and a scattering of trees. The park’s pond, though, is fenced off, so if you’re looking to skim stones or row on the lake, you’ll be disappointed.
Pets allowed? No. 2.5/5
