  • Nice place to have a family get together with friends. The Park has big area which supports too many activities, the only problem I faced was, Playing cricket was not allowed as it concerns others safety. But the total experience was great and we had a good time.
  • Very nice park... Kids can enjoy... Lot of activities happening....my daughters favorite park too.... She loves to go mostly and play... Specially to see the lightings of Garden Glow and the dinosaurs kept..... Also the Dubai frame which is visible from far too.... My daughter sees daily from her school and in the evening the Dubai frame is full of lights changing its color.
  • A fun place to be. The dinosaur park is awesome. If your kid loves the pre historic reptiles, a must go. If he/she doesn't like them I'll still recommend that they go because not only they'll learn a lot but maybe they'll find dinosaurs interesting after this trip. The displays are hi tech. And the sound effects are awesome
  • Very nice park, there is a certain area assigned for grilling, while it is prohibited in the remaining park areas. A lot of green places where you can relax and enjoy. Suitable for families and Safe for children.
  • Very nice public park in the heart of the city. Only issue is the current construction happening near the park which makes getting there like a maze. There is nice jogging track outside the fenced park, you don't have to buy the tickets to do that. They have cricket ground also inside the park . No other public parks have that in dubai. Great place for small family picnics or hosting corporate team building events.
