Safa Park covers about 64 hectares of land, 80% of which is grass. It is located in Jumeirah 1 and can be accessed from Al Wasl Road, Al Hadiqa Street, and 55th Street. Entrance ticket for adults and children above 2 years old is Dhs. 3.00 (less than US $ 1.00).
Come early morning when kids are at school and parents are at work and you'll find this huge park almost to yourself and a few moms with their children. Bring a picnic and a mat as you can be in this park for hours. You can relax under the shade of many trees. There is also a barbecue area if you fancy cooked breakfast.
Coming with older children? Then why not rent a byky for single, twin or family seaters that can ride up to 4 family members?
There is one last activity you can do at Safa Park without even going inside the park itself: exercise! A fast walk around the rubberised outskirt of Safa Park while pushing my toddler in a pram takes me about 40 minutes.
