Zabeel Park is an urban public park located in the Zabeel district of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is bounded by Sheikh Rashid Road to the north, the Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Road to the northwest, while the Sheikh Zayed Road cuts through the south. The park is divided into numerous sectors connected by pedestrian bridges, and there are multiple entrance gates.
Situated between Al Karama and the Dubai World Trade Centre, Zabeel Park covers much of the Al Kifaf area. It is accessible from the Red Line of Dubai Metro via the nearby Al Jaffliya Station. It is maintained by the Public Parks and Horticulture Department of Dubai Municipality.
The park was opened to the public in December 2005, in an inauguration ceremony by Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Zabeel Park has an area of 47.5 hectares, roughly equivalent to 45 football grounds. The parking capacity can accommodate 2,300 vehicles.
The entrance fee is AED 5 per person. The park is one of the city's largest and most frequented, and is a popular spot for sports and live music. It contains various recreational facilities including a 4.3 km jogging track on the park perimeter, pedestrian tracks, BMX track, skateboarding park, barbecue and picnic areas, a boating lake, lakeside restaurants, ice skating, a mini cricket pitch and golfing area, shaded seating and children's play areas. There is also an exhibition gallery, prayer rooms, a fitness centre, and various monuments. The park has a technology-based theme, with three zones (the Alternative Energy Zone, Communications Zone and the Techno Zone) containing educational and interactive displays. It also offers a 3D cinema for edutainment activities.

  • We visited during Ramadan 2019’(mid May). It was very quiet walking around and most / many of the attractions etc were closed. BUT: I would imagine this would be a truly lovely place to visit on a sum...  more »
  • Entrance - 5AED, in the park quiet, calm, birds sing, well-groomed, grass is evenly trimmed, people because of Ramadan almost no ... There are some sculptures, landscape design... A good place for a picnic, but for the money... in Moscow all the same, but free) in the museum golden frame did not go, because I do not see the point of spending 52 AED to view the stone jungle and construction, and the history of the UAE can be seen in the museum for 3 AED in the historical museum of Dubai))

  • When we looked for a place to have a party from, Zabeel park was the first to come on our mind. It was our first time to go there but we really liked it. It has various kiosks for soft drink, BBQ stoves free of use. Children play area. Security is good. But remember to dress decently.
  • Very nice and beautiful park. It is very big and having various amusement activities. A very nice cricket ground is here. Glowing garden is also here, children love this place. Dubai frame is also here and it is must visit place.
