Many visitors and new residents to Dubai are astonished by how many parks and green places there are to explore across the city – the majority of which are free or very inexpensive and are ideal for families.
We’ve compiled a list of all of our favorite parks and outdoor areas in Dubai, along with entry prices and additional family-friendly amenities.
Al Barari Playground
This beautiful new nature location in Dubai has quickly become a local favorite. Kids can enjoy everything from water play to climbing, big swings to pirate ships, and even exploring the veggie patch, all while relaxing in the verdant environment of luxurious estate Al Barari.
Parents appreciate the Hideout lounge, where they can relax and enjoy a drink while their children play. There are also ice creams, burgers, and shawarma available if you are hungry. It is necessary to make a reservation for this luxurious natural play area, especially on weekends.
Dubai Miracle Garden
Just outside of the city is the world’s largest floral garden in terms of total number of flowers. Explore a fascinating network of pathways that lead to floral creations, cartoon characters, monsters, and iconic landmarks transformed into floral arrangements.
The park’s centerpiece is a beautiful flowery A380 Emirates plane. There are numerous cafes, magnificent swings, and play areas, as well as soothing swings, in the Dubai Miracle garden. Enjoy some wonderful family photos, but arrive early to avoid the throng and the heat.
Al Ittihad Park
This lengthy park, located on the trunk of the Palm Jumeirah, is visible beneath a 3.2-kilometer section of the Palm Monorail.
The park has playgrounds and water features, as well as workout equipment, stores, and cafes to stop at along the way, making it a fantastic walk for strollers and scooters. Palm Jumeirah Park is another name for this location.
Al Khazzan Park
The unique blue and white striped water tower, which is centrally placed opposite Dubai’s City Walk, is easy to spot in this urban park. Your toddlers and older children can have a great time at the shaded play areas with slides, swings, and climbing frames.
Look out for the small children’s library here, which is a wonderful area for bringing your own picnic.
Al Sufouh Park
This cozy tiny park, located along Hessa Street and Al Sufouh Road in a quiet suburban area of the city, features two children’s play park spaces.
Although it is intended for younger children, it also includes a running track, sports courts, and a small coffee shop.
Al Wasl Park
Jumeirah 1 is a little suburban hidden treasure right off Wasl Road. It is not large, but it provides enough area for the kids to ride their scooters and bikes and play in the somewhat shaded playground.
Bay Avenue Park
The Bay Avenue Park adds a splash of green to the largely concrete jungle of the Business Bay Area, with outdoor gyms, trampoline area, skatepark, and lots of grassy spaces to set up a picnic mat, as well as the customary playground equipment, mostly under shade.
A neighboring Spinneys grocery is ideal for grabbing a bite to eat, and the park offers farmers markets and yoga in the park on a regular basis.
Between clusters O and P, this is a nice little area of green for the Jumeirah Lake Towers residents to discover in the midst of the urban jungle. Three distinct shaded playground zones, as well as a giant spider web climbing structure and zip line, are available for different age groups.
There are plenty of grassy spaces to relax, and in the cooler months, there is a busy entertainment programme that includes food, music, and open-air theater.
Jumeirah Beach Park
Beautifully maintained gardens meet the coastline in the Jumeirah neighborhood of Dubai, in another of Dubai’s freshly rebuilt parks. There are plenty of picnic places, as well as grilling facilities and children’s playgrounds.
Love Lake Dubai
This gorgeous area of Dubai is buried deep in the desert, making it one of Dubai’s more unusual parks. A magnificent walking/running pathway that traverses the man-made Love Lagoons in Al Qudra, Al Marmoom Desert Conservation Reserve, is well worth the drive. Bring a picnic or use one of the approved grilling areas. Enjoy the tranquility of this eco-spot while snapping photos of the park’s many insta-worthy attractions.
