Safa Park, Dubai

(3.8/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Head to Safa Park to enjoy a bit of welcome relief from the bustle of downtown. Set over an area of 64 hectares (158 acres), the urban green space contains three lakes and many native trees and plants, which in turn support over 200 species of birds. Well-maintained lawns lead up to a hilltop panorama, offering a good perspective on the downtown development and all those skyscrapers. For a particularly peaceful experience, rent a row boat and ease your way out onto the largest lake. Put Safa Park on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Dubai vacation trip planner.

  • This park in full vacuum is in work in part. It is empty, almost no one comes, everything is in work around and partly in... So not much to do... It will be very nice when it's finished... 3 dirhams the entrance per person I recommend as long as the work is not finished

  • Came here as it was a good location for bird watching. Well we were able to see the bird pond off in the distance in the middle of the construction zone. They are extending Dubai Creek so removing some of Safa park for this project. I hope that the bird pond will remain untouched during this project and after completion. We were able to see some great birds and even 12-15 turtles on the edge of the pond - but you would need to bring your binoculars to see them. The maps at the front entrance should be updated to show where the construction is located.
  • now because of canal passage through middle of park, this park is not usable!:(
  • The best park in Dubai! It's so enjoyable as you can feed the ducks in the pond while having a cruise with a small boat, several BBQ spots..
  • Too Greenery & Calm park.Entrance fee Aed 5.00/person.Very good location to hang out with family.
  • I love safa park because it's a friendly park with lots a things to do. And if you play Pokemon go you'll definitely catch em all
