So we were already in the dolphinarium when we saw the children's city and had a walk about. It's a good little educational site but very strange when it's empty and quiet. We... read more

We have been here twice once when our daughter was 4 (she is now 18) & again now with our Son who is 4. Our daughter couldn't wait to take her picture by the mascot outside the museum to show how much she had grown. There are activities for children of all ages in the Center. There is a room... More

Fairly nice place for a quiet family picnic or a stroll with kids. Nothing mind blowing but decent none the less.

We visited with a 2yr old and we were very disappointed. There is a soft play area for kids which is decent but a bit old and faded. There was also a 'decorate your cupcake' workshop which consisted of some impatient assistants, some cupcakes, a few bottles of squirty icing sugar, some sprinkles and sugar stars. There was also a... More

So we were already in the dolphinarium when we saw the children's city and had a walk about. It's a good little educational site but very strange when it's empty and quiet. We took our young son and went in to the toddlers area which is a soft play and it's brilliant! Plenty to keep little kids happy and entertained... More

Part of our itinerary for every single visit to Dubai. A lot for the kids to explore. Also, there is a scenic cable car ride with great views of the city, the creek and the greenery around. Cycles etc are available on hire suitable even for kids. Food variety available was limited. Sometimes, can get quite crowded.

There is a 5 Dirham fee to enter the Creek park, Children City is inside the park, and then a further 10 Dirham for kids and 15 UAED for adults to enter Children City. The planetarium was closed when we visited but there were lots of hands on exhibits the kids participated in and it was a good learning experience.... More

In the 48 degree heat this was a great place to take my 2 year old, she loved it. They have a toddler play area and lots of educational exhibits. Plus they had a magician and balloon animal maker on the day we were there. It was too hot to spend much time outside but the creekside park also looked... More
