As well as fun climbing frames, within the park there’s an array of exciting activities including mini golf, a go-kart track, a dolphinarium as well as Children’s City.

The Dubai Dolphinarium attracts over 30,000 visitors per month. Visitors can get up-close and personal with aquatic life such as bottle nosed dolphins and seals. The dolphins and seals perform incredible acrobatics, dance, sing, juggle, play ball, jump through hoops and can even paint pictures. Children’s City is Dubai’s first interactive education attraction with a planetarium, nature centre and Global Exhibition Section. Kids from the ages of 2 to 15 can learn all about the human body too, as well as discovering more about the way we live. For your extra-little little ones, there’s also a toddler’s area full of fun and entertainment. If you’d rather enjoy a relaxing day out with the family, there are also bikes for rent for just Dhs 20 to Dhs 40. With a fully kitted-out barbecue spot, you can also enjoy a meal in the park’s lush greenery. Or, simply dine at one of the park’s restaurants and cafeterias.

Enjoy the ultimate view of the park and the surrounding Creek at a whopping height of 30m. The park also caters to People of Determination. This is definitely a Dubai to-do! Call 04-3367633.
