Great and nice park. Prepare in the morning for a BBQ and relax or play sport in the afternoon or run around the park on a special athletic surface

“Good to see greenery amidst the high towers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Safa Park is a nice public park, which is very well maintained. Good views of the Dubai City sky-scrappers. It is ideal for a good walk and rest. Most of the Far Eastern Communities go there for social gathering and picnics.

Nice to see some trees and birds. It has facilities to buy food.

“Weekend get together ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

The park is huge and offers plenty space for everyone who visits. Its the one place that allows you to get-away from it all within this great city. Every weekend people visit this park

“A lovely park in the middle of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Safa park is extremely popular in Dubai. The entrance fee is minimal 3 AED/person. Like all the other parks in Dubai it has BBQ stations, kids play areas, a large lagoon, and a recent beautiful addition was a library/cafe called Archives, where you can have a drink and enjoy their lovely books about Middle Eastern and North African Art Literature.(access from gate5) The only downfall is not having enough kiosks, but you can bring with you food and drinks. If you do not have a car you will find it extremely difficult to get a taxi at gate 5, so it's better to get all the way to another exit that is on Jumeirah road side next to the COOP, and yet finding a taxi there is not guaranteed too. Once I called the taxi company and waited for half an hour but they didn't show up so I went back home on foot, which was also another half an hour.

“Great for an entire day of family fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We went on a weekday morning and there were very few people around. We had the entire park to ourselves and we were able to visit all of the 6 major playgrounds, take a ride in a swan boat and even grab lunch at the lovely cafe within the park. All in all a great place to have clean wholesome fun. An easy cab ride away from the major hotels and a haven of quiet within the city.
