OK, so daytime temperatures in Dubai are what are technically know as ‘scorching hot.’ However, it’s still cool enough to hang outside after dark and the emirate’s gorgeous public parks are the perfect places to do just that.
During the Eid al Fitr holiday, parks in Dubai are likely to be busy with people making the most of their break.
So whether you’re picnicking with the fam or stretching your legs after dinner, here are the Dubai Municipality-confirmed timings for Dubai parks:
Safa Park, Mushrif Park, Creek Park, Zabeel Park and Mamzar Park will be open from 8am to 11pm. Parks in residential areas and pond parks will be open from 8am to 11pm too.
Need some inspiration in your park life? Dubai’s Quran Park is open now and getting in won’t cost you anything. The Islamic-inspired 64-hectare stretch of land in Al Khawaneej (near Mirdif and Mushrif Park) has attractions including the Cave of Miracles, where interactive technology shows scenes from the Holy Book.
If you’re using public transport to visit your fav green space, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announced holiday timings for buses, the Metro and Tram, marine transit and public buses.
Public parking is free for six days too, starting from Sunday (2nd June).
