Al Quoz Pond Park in Dubai

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.

Shops or kiosks: None.

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.


Free. Open Sun-Thu 8am-11pm, Fri-Sat 8am-11.30pm, public holidays 8am-midnight. Al Quoz 2, at the intersection of Al Khail Road and Al Meydan Street. (050 852 8513).
