Tired of shopping in Dubai? Visit the parks
Dubai, Safa Park
Safa Park Entrance at Al Wasl Road

So many places! Depending on the time of year when you visit Dubai (try not to visit during summer time because your outdoor choices will be very limited), I like bringing my kids to Safa Park.

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.

Or if you are like me who can't be bothered carrying a basket of food besides my children's change of clothes/nappy and milk, there is a cafeteria inside the park serving hot and cold drinks and meal.

There are children's play area in different parts of the park, and a huge grass lawns to run around.

There is a paid play area with bouncy castles and children's rides. Or you can hop in a train that goes around the whole vicinity of Safa Park.

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.

Enjoy your holidays in Dubai!
