Dubai park guide

Leave the mall, skip the beach and head out to Dubai's best parks

Dubai is renowned for its increasingly urban landscape, beaches and the magnificent red dunes that lie just beyond. What it’s not so famous for is glorious green parks, which makes strolling barefoot across springy grass, lying in the shade of a tree and even spotting iguanas roaming among the greenery quite a novelty. Several newcomers have sprung up on the park scene recently, and with the average maximum temperature now a delightful 33°C, it’s time to head back outdoors and explore our ever-growing number of inner-city oases.

Escape the skyscrapers and visit one of the city’s growing number of green spaces with our new guide to what Dubai’s parks have to offer.
