Love New York's iconic Central Park. Well, if you’re not travelling to America any time soon, you still can at Dubai’s very own “Central Park.” We may not have the seasons that the US does but that won't stop Dubai launching a super new park.

Dubai developer Meraas has revealed plans for a brand-new residential zone at City Walk, naming it Central Park.

The new residential neighbourhood will surround 40,000 sq m private park, featuring tennis courts, basketball courts, swimming pools, spas, cafés and a play area for the kids.

Park visitors can also expect areas dedicated to yoga, barbecue spots, picnic pavilions and a "skate-able landscape".

As for the neighbourhood itself, spanning 230,000 sq m, it will include 12 mid-rise residential build-ings with 187 one- to four-bedroom apartments overlooking the park.

The residential buildings will be designed to blend in with the greenery of the park’s environment, which will include plants and flowers hanging at the edge of each balcony.

The neighbourhood is currently in its planning stage, and has yet to reveal when construction of the new zones will finish.

It will be placed right next to City Walk – only a two-minute walk from the complex. For a better look at what it looks like, head right here.

There’s another massive park coming to Azizi Riviera’s waterfront development in Meydan One, decked out with green fields, flowering plants and towering trees.
