Have a picnic in a park

It’s fun, it’s cheap, it’s for everyone and it’s pretty much always an option

Zabeel Park

We know, it takes a while to get used to the idea that you long for the end of summer so you can head outside for a picnic. But when the temperatures cool down, the months between October and April are perfect for a picnic in a park. 

There are plenty of lush, green spaces where you can lay down your wicker basket throughout the UAE. In Dubai, you can bring along the family for a fun day out at top picnic spots such as Al Khazzan Park, the first totally solar-powered amenity of its kind in the country, and the sprawling Zabeel Park, where you can watch the boats gently cruise across the lake while you tuck into your lunch.

In Abu Dhabi, you can head over to spacious Khalifa Park or travel out of the city to Green Mubazzara Park in Al Ain.
Khalifa Park: Dhs2. Near Park Rotana Complex, Abu Dhabi.
Zabeel Park:  Dhs5. Off Al Majlis Street, Al Kifaf, Dubai. 
Al Khazzan Park: Free. Al Safa Street, Dubai.
