Ten of the best parks in the UAE

Here are 10 of The National's favourite places to go alfresco.

1.Capital Garden, Abu Dhabi

On Khalifa Street in downtown Abu Dhabi, the 5.6-hectare space is a green oasis in the concrete jungle and is open 24/7.

The small park was opened in 1976 but was recently refurbished and now includes rock fountain, where high-pressure nozzles shoot boulders a few metres into the air.

2.Corniche Park, Abu Dhabi

Stretching 5 kilometres along the Abu Dhabi coast is the 50-hectare Corniche Park. A fun way to see the park's restaurants, play areas and beaches is to rent a bicycle from one of the many stations.

3.Creek Park, Dubai

The only park with its own cable car can be found in the heart of old Dubai, between Maktoum Bridge and Garhoud Bridge. The park is also home to the Dubai Dolphinarium and Children's City, a centre where children aged 2 to 15 can investigate, explore, play and learn about the world they live in.

4.Jumeirah Beach Park, Dubai

Opened in 1989 on 12 hectares of land, it was Dubai's first beach park. Besides having the best spot on Dubai's coastline, the park is an ideal location for a family picnic, with barbecue areas, children's playgrounds, volleyball courts and a swimming pool with lifeguards.

5.Khalifa Park, Abu Dhabi

In 2007, 45 hectares were set aside for this park. One of the main attractions here is a Maritime Heritage museum, including a tunnel ride. The 20-minute ride charts the history of the country from before the Union to present day. A favourite among children is the Murjan Splash park.
