Ittihad Park on Palm Jumeirah

Tree-lined promenade is great for joggers and kids


Ittihad Park is a palm tree-lined promenade-style affair, surrounded by a 3.2 kilometre jogging track. Squarely aimed at running enthusiasts, this place is perfect for an early-morning/evening jaunt. Landscaped rockeries and the odd water feature improve the scenery along the straight running route, and there’s even a variety of gym equipment on the way, should you feel up to a quick burst of squat thrusts or push-ups. Sadly, there’s a bit of a lack of greenery, except for the aforementioned trees and the odd tiny strip of grass here and there.

Facilities: Gym equipment and two kids’ playgrounds.

Shops and kiosks: None.

Toilets: No.

Nature: Lots of different species of bird, including Hoopoes.

Pets Allowed? No.


Free. Open 24 hours daily. Located between Golden Mile building 2 and 3. Palm Jumeirah. (no number).

Tip: Preparing for a 10km? Attempt three laps of this park (9.6km) and you’ll be in good shape.
