Media City Park in Dubai

Serene spot with ducks, office workers and the occasional festival


This park has a giant lake to one side complete with a large fountain spraying water some nine metres in the air. There’s a path around the lake and benches dotted along the route. With plenty of green space this park is a popular spot with Media City workers chilling out at lunch but there’s less to keep kids occupied than at parks located in more residential areas.

Facilities: None, though the park does host the occasional music concert and seasonal festival.

Shops or kiosks: Although there are no shops, the park is right next to a selection of decent restaurants including Circle and Urban Bistro. The Media One Hotel is also just over the road.


Here you’ll find ducks, geese, terrapins and giant carp.

Pets Allowed?


Free. Open 24-hours daily. Dubai Media City, between the CNN Building and the Media One Hotel (no number).

Tip: Unless you want the army of greedy Media City ducks to follow you, we recommend you avoid walking around with a plastic bag...
