  • Getting into the park is bit difficult. No nearby walkable metro stations. Good to host closed entry mega parties
  • Difficult to find, make sure you use GPS.
  • Well organized
  • Just convenient parking on the right side of Zabeel park
  • Zabeel Park beautiful for meetings of families, and also where the local forums, haven't found her amusement park for children.
