Welcome to Discovery Gardens, The Gardens.

Discovery Gardens, The Gardens

What’s the area like?
Tucked away and fully living up to its name, this rapidly growing area is packed with trees and chirping birds, so residents feel like they’ve fully escaped the city into an established community.

Amenities
Jebel Ali Hospital is but five minutes’ drive from the Gardens, petrol stations are aplenty and Ibn Battuta is the world within a mall. There are also parks and lots of pathways to walk and jog along. Dubai Marina also lies across the highway.

Best for
All sorts – apart from those after the constant buzz of inner city life.

Pros
Parking is a breeze in most building blocks, traffic jams are relatively rare and despite feeling detached from the city’s main drag, you’re still only 10 minutes from the Marina and 30 from the Trade Centre. It’s also easy to grab cabs coming in from Ibn Battuta – apart from on Thursday nights, when it’s best to arrange alternative wheels.

Cons
Getting a place in the Gardens is like finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow – not only can you not buy them as they’re all owned by Nakheel, but there’s a long waiting list for leasing. Since the Discovery Gardens opened the traffic is on the increase, especially around rush hours (7.30am-8.30 am and 6pm-7pm). There are also too many pylons.

On the radar
Dubai Investment Park.
