These are just a few of the many great recreational spots in Dubai. With so many options to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect place to enjoy a day out with friends and family.

When deciding on a spot, consider the weather conditions for the day. If it’s scorching hot outside, opt for a location with ample shade to provide relief from the sun’s intense rays. Pack plenty of food and drinks, ensuring that you include items that will help you stay hydrated and energised in the heat. Bring a first-aid kit just in case. Lastly, remember to be responsible and respectful by cleaning up and leaving the park in the same pristine condition as when you arrived.
