There are only a few months in the year where we can actually visit all the lush green parks in Dubai, so its time to make the most of it! From zip-lining through Mushrif Park to learning about planets at Dubai Creek Park, here are the top 4 parks in Dubai packed with fun family activities…
1. Aventura Dubai at Mushrif Park
Unleash your inner Tarzan and take on Aventura Dubai‘s obstacle challenge! Surrounded my hundreds of trees, this adventure park has challenges for all ages, and includes zip-lining, bouldering, climbing up cargo nets and crossing wobbly bridges. Here’s what happened when we spent the day zip-lining and climbing through Aventura Dubai!
Price: AED 10 for kids below 1.15m; AED 125 for kids 1.15-1.39m tall (min. 6 years old); AED 150 for everyone 1.4m and above
Where: Aventura Dubai, at Mushrif Park
2. Dubai Garden Glow at Zabeel Park
Dubai Garden Glow looks like something out of a fairy tale book, but it actually exists at Zabeel Park! The magical glow-in-the-dark park has installations of everything from the iconic Burj Khalifa to trippy trees. But that’s not it. There’s also an Ice Park (which is created from 5000 tonnes of ice!) and a Dino Park with over 100 different dinosaurs!
Price: AED 60
Where: Dubai Garden Glow, at Zabeel Park
3. Ripe Market at Al Barsha Pond Park

4. Children’s City at Dubai Creek Park
One of Dubai’s oldest parks, Dubai Creek Park is a gigantic park filled with greenery and fun family activities. One of the highlights is Children’s City, an edutainment centre with fun and games for the little ones. From a planetarium to art and science workshops, there’s so much to learn.
