The Creek Park is frequented by huge crowds of people every day.

There is enough space allotted for car parking and on entry, with AED 5 per person, people find themselves offered various amenities like the cafeterias, shops for kid’s accessories, a cycling track, clean toilets, and a prayer room. There are two playgrounds in-housed with free drinking water available on-spot. Fishing facilities are also available in the park and boats can be rented out for a ride along the Creek pond. The Creek makes for a great bird-watching experience with over 30 species of birds to take note of. You can even bring along your furry pets for a walk down Dubai’s most popular picnic spot. Don’t forget to bring your Nol travel cards along for a cashless transaction at the entrance.
This 117-acre piece of land features a flea market and the very famous Dubai Frame. The entrance fee to the park is AED 5 per person and is free in case you buy tickets to the landmarked Dubai Frame. You can also book your tickets to the Dubai Frame online. Both the park and the Dubai frame are interconnected via a gate for easy location access to Dubai’s most popular crowding spots. You can jog along the 2.5 km track, find a good barbeque spot, skateboard, golf, ice skate, or find a small cricket to pitch in. Visitors can also head to the 3D cinema for educational entertainment. So, all you have to do is find a quiet spot and chill in with the constant access to the parks’ wi-fi.
This park is famous for the camel and horse rides and the dedicated BBQ spots. The entrance to the Mushrif is AED 10 per car and access to the pool is available at AED 10 per person and is free for children below 100 cm. Along with being a birdwatching zone, the park is located near the Dubai Airport and aircraft in the area can be frequently spotted to the joy of the little ones dreaming of soaring to the newer heights. You can be the game changer by setting fitness goals by cycling through the paved track. Open every day from 8:00 AM to 11:00 PM, the park also features a mini-housing society with models of 13 houses presented from around the world. Electronic gaming and theater screenings are also available to do things at the park.
There are no ticket fee charges to this hidden gem of Downtown Dubai. At the base of the towering skyscrapers, the Burj is often overlooked by the alternatives of the Creek and Zabeel. But it should be on the bucket list for every winter traveler as the park sees the influx of food trucks and hosts the dauntingly adventurous water slides that can be accessed at a cost. One can also hit the track by renting bicycles at AED 15 to 70. Around the Burj Park are the Dubai Fountain, The Green Planet, Dubai Design District, an Italian restaurant, and a must-visit Dubai Opera.
The Safa Park is a green open space with sports pitches, playgrounds, prayer rooms, and a boating lake, making it a great place for long walks and runs. Football and basketball fields call for young adults and children looking out for a sporting event while the elderly can make use of a small train that runs around the perimeter of the park. Visitors can also go karting and mini-golfing amidst the greenery. Family and friends can also sit-in at cafes and restaurants to enjoy a range of food options.
