Creek Park sets a new benchmark for childhood parks. It’s extraordinarily beautiful, set upon lush rolling grassy hills overlooking the Dubai Creek and just over the water, Deira. At least four separate play areas keep kiddies very enthusiastic for staying till dark. Creek Park is my fave.
But our beloved Zabeel Park has a hold of our hearts. Just down the road from us and with the giant slides this park is definitely Kingsley’s favourite. Overlooking the Dubai Frame and the fascinating (though abandoned) planetarium, I stroll for hours while Erroll deals with the brute.
Then we have the very cool Al Khazzan Park with its water tower and groovy cafe overlooking Citywalk. No commute to this one; we just walk there. Here, we meet friends monthly.
