With all the massive and high-rise buildings spread all over the city, it's a breath of fresh air to find a green spot in the middle of the city where you can simply lie down in the grass under the shade of few trees while marveling at the ever changing skyline of Dubai. Just around the Burj Khalifa you'll find this tiny park called Burj Park.
There are bicycles in the area that are up for rent. The place is also a venue for mini concerts and events. At the time I went here, there is a stage being set up for an event. The place is also ideal for yoga or zumba classes and provides a resting place for joggers around the area.
Just beside the park is the newly opened Dubai Opera, a state-of-the-art venue for opera, theatre, concerts, art exhibitions, orchestra, film, sports events, and seasonal programmes in Downtown Dubai's Opera District. The stunning architecture adds to the already amazing structure of the whole Downtown Dubai complex.
In the park, you'll find this hand statue built by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai, etched with his own words of wisdom. His visions and ideals are a true inspiration to many.
One good thing about this park is that it provides one of the best spot to view the Burj Khalifa.

Burj Park is a perfect place if you want a very quick break from the bustle of the city. Sit back, lay down if you want, and let this little piece of green do the pampering. -Jon-
