Parks and gardens are spread across the city of Dubai for all to enjoy. Situated around Dubai are numerous public parks and gardens that offer a peaceful respite from urban life. These are particularly popular with families as they offer attractive picnic spots and childrens' play areas with a variety of entertainment facilities.

The largest of the city's parks are Jumeirah Beach Park, Dubai Creekside Park, Mushrif Park, Ras Al Mamzar Park and Safa Park, while many smaller ones throughout the city provide pleasant green oases.



Dubai has numerous well-maintained public parks and gardens which are extremely popular hangouts for families with some of them having certain days reserved only for ladies and children. Providing a respite from the urban life, the parks feature a host of recreational facilities including children's playgrounds and swimming pools, camel and pony rides, colourful gardens and manicured lawns, restaurants and cafetarias.

Some of the favourite haunts include Al Mamzar Beach Park situated on Al Mamzar Creek at the Dubai-Sharjah border; the Dubai Creekside Park between Al Maktoum and Al Garhoud bridges overlooking the creek; the shoreside Jumeira Beach Park featuring full beach facilities with round- the-clock lifeguard service and a helipad; the large Mushrif National Park on Al Awir Road, past the Dubai International Airport, noted for its miniature International Village featuring different styles of architecture from around the world; and the Safa Park on Al Wasl Road; and Umm Suqueim Park, one of the largest youngster-oriented parks in Umm Suqueim.
