    Great addition to Dubai’s outdoor activities
    Bike track is well worth a visit. Something different to do for residents and tourists alike. Entry is free although Rental bikes available for extra cost, We have only done the shorter green track with our 3 and 5 year old boys on our own bikes and they loved it. Looking forward to the kids growing older and us exploring the more technical mountain bike trails available.

    Mushrif Forest Hiking Trail
    Mushrif Forest Hiking Trail is located in the same location as the mountain bike trails, an area external to Mushrif National Park. As soon as you exit Highway D89, there is a large carpark on your right hand side (6FJ2+34Q Dubai), or you can drive a further 800 meters to another carpark (6FF2+QG6 Dubai) again on your right hand side that’s located just before the entrance into Mushrif National Park. Both car parks are free to park in. This is the area where you start your walking hike. It’s an 8.3 kilometre loop which is all on sand, undulating with rest stops along the way. My wife and I are in our early 50’s and we knocked it out in 2.5 hours. Opening time is 0530 every day. Tips: The noticeboard at the start of the loop has emergency numbers, take a photo and make sure you have a charged phone. You don’t have to walk the entire distance, there are opportunities to access a main track that will get you back to the start location, it’s a harder surface and easy walking. Take plenty of water, walking on sand is not the same as walking on firm ground, be prepared. Slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen and slap on a hat, it’s still hot. Have something in your car to put your sandy shoes and socks in to…Enjoy

    Nice weather for hiking ❄️
    It’s our first time to go hiking in Mushrif Park. The trail itself is free of charge. The ranger explained the different tracks as per the distance and difficulty. We took the beginners trail. There are two available short cuts, which we of course took else we’ll be trapped in the almost 10km trail. They also provide a number to call in case of emergency. They have a standby buggy for that. The trail has some bridges, wooden stairways and chairs to rest. It’s a perfect place to bond with the whole family. Kids 12-15 yo should be accompanied by an adult. It’s a great escape from the noise of the city as you will be surrounded by nature. I was a bit surprised as I did not expect the trail to be so sandy. Unfortunately I was wearing primeknit which is a big mistake. But I guess walking on sand adds to the difficulty and challenge. We arrived just before 7am and the weather is so nice. Cold but sunny. The hiking trail is quite new and there are bound to be changes and improvements in the near future.

Since the weather is nice and cold for the outdoors, we took the kids to Mushrif Park, they have a BBQ station with the grill, you can just bring your charcoal and start grilling. There is a kids park area as well, and horses stables for the kids to enjoy. Overall a great experience

I had the pleasure of visiting mushrif park many times. The staff are helpful and the park itself is luscious and opulent. Highly recommend a visit. Also the free bike trails are insanely fun. But theyre worth a separate review. Go visit. Take ya nan.

Very nice place however my girlfriend and I came to use the rental bikes on the cycling track and none of the park staff were able to give us any information on how to rent them. Staff at the administration Centre told us bike rentals were available from 1330, we waited for an hour and called the number on the sign next to the bike racks but no one answered and there was no information on the website either.

We did however visit the astronomy Centre and despite not having all of it's features open to the public was very educational and a great experience for us both.

In short, give the bike rental a miss unless you've managed to find some extra information that we couldn't and head straight to the astronomy Centre instead.

We are a family of 3 - 2 adults and a 3 year old. We were excited to go to this park as it includes a swimming pool. It was somewhat out of the city, so a taxi ride cost us about 80dhs, might be less depending on where you live. Of course if you have a car, then it's no problem. We took a taxi and were allowed to take the taxi in until the main playground areas and swimming pool as it is a bit of a walk between the gate and the main attraction area. We paid about 3-5dhs per person and in addition 10dhs per adult and 5dhs per child for the pool. You can also take your private car inside against a fee. Make sure you already pay for the swimming pool fee at the gate entrance as you cannot pay at the pool entrance.

The park is very big, beautifully green with various play areas for children. It is a wonderful place to relax on the green grass, under the shade of a palm for a picnic or BBQ. BBQ facilities are available in numerous places.

There are several playground areas for children although I preferred the ones in Safa park and Za'abeel park (see separate reviews). There is a big fair area too with rides but it only opens as of 4pm.

We were really looking forward to using the pool but were surprised to learn that there are two separate pools - one for men and one for women and children - not ideal! and we had already paid. Also, they have very strict rules about swim wear. Men cannot wear speedos - needs to be a swim short. And women have to wear a one piece - as I had a 2 piece I was not allowed in the water. I was however exceptionally allowed to keep my shirt on and be with my daughter in the children's pool. Women are also expected to wear a swim cap for the pool, but not men. If one is to put all of these rules aside, the pools are nice and clean. The children's pool is also nice and our daughter liked it. Just a shame that we could not be together as a family.

Overall, a very lush green and spacious park. You could walk there for hours if you wanted to. It certainly also very popular with the locals. Personally, I think it is best for picnics, BBQ and relaxation. The playground areas are nice but not as many as in other parks. However, the fair with the rides is bigger than Safa or Zabeel park, and they also have a petting zoo and can ride camel if you want.

we are a family of 5 and we pay to take the car in which is around 10-15 dhs (I guess).
it was 10 the last time I visited it. to pay for the car as whole is cheaper than paying for each individual in a big family. besides its low price it is also a great place for hangouts and parties or a simple relaxing outing .
they have provided different areas and u also have variety in them depending on wheteher u want a sandy area, a shady one or a grassy area. the washrooms are well-maintained and clean they can be found near each picnic location so parents need not worry about their kids wanting to go to the w.c again and again. it also includes 1 big family rest, 2 small ones, ice cream, a few rides( the train is the best of all, gives a tour of the whole park), and the normal kids play area. also has horse riding.
it is very conveinient
ill be giving some pictures and a more elaborate explanation to this park in a couple of days

till then remember that it is a great place for families.
