“A great place to unwind!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

We went here today by taxi but it is walkable from the. Business Bay Metro station, it is 3 dirhams per adult entrance less than one Euro and well worth more than that. It is an expansive park full of grassy mounds, peaceful palm trees to recline under and for children there are play areas and waterfalls to explore. The toilet factories are fine if not to the mall standards.
We ate in a little restaurant within the park at the Exhibition Centre, the food was beautifully presented if a little pricey for Dubai. Still we had three cokes, two chicken Caesar Salads and a Burger with sweet potato fries for around thirty euros or twenty four pounds sterling.
The most remarkable and wonderful thing about this place is it is an oasis of green in a desert of high rise buildings. If you have had enough of the malls and crave some quiet down time then this is the place to go.

“Nice day out with family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Excellent place to be out with friends and family, as long as we avoid Fridays and public holidays, it's a really nice place to escape.

“Nice place for jogging”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

This park is just opposite to the JW Marriot Marquis and you can get there by running. The track around the park has a special flooring for jogging and the loop is about 3,8 km. Better than at the gym!

“Overcrowded park, limited parking!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

This is the most popular park in jumairah/safa/al sufouh/sh Zayed Rd area and tends to get very crowded on the weekend. It has a large lake where you can go on a paddle boat, and a running track on the outside. There are BBQ spots, but are usually all taken. There are better parks in Dubai!
