Rediscovering Dubai, UAE: Zabeel Park

       One of the best thing in Dubai is finding a generous space of green public parks. Talking about parks in this city, Zabeel Park is on top of the list. Located in between some of the most populated areas, this park rises from one end of Karama and extends to the more private Zabeel area. Said to be one of the largest parks in Dubai,  Zabeel is a favorite hang out place for Dubai residents and visitors.

       The park is complete with recreational facilities and playgrounds suited for gathering of family and friends. There is even a large amphitheater area where many events take place. Having a vast amount of green space, people from all walks of life are drawn to this park. Then there is a covered areas for outdoor barbecues making this park unique among all public parks in Dubai.

       Being situated amidst some of the populated areas of Dubai, one can simply enjoy the stunning view of the skyline around the park.

       The park is frequented by fitness enthusiasts too! Jogging, cycling, zumba classes, yogas, and the like can be best done here. Need not to worry when you get thirsty as there are several kiosks around offering plenty of refreshments.

       Other attractions of Zabeel Park include the themed miniature children’s play areas available all around the park, the variety of technological and architectural models layered throughout and the man made lake where you can take a personal boat ride for a small amount.

 Dubai Frame
       Then there's Dubai Frame that will surely be the center of attraction of the park which opened in November 2017. This 150-meter structure that resembles a picture frame is covered in gold cladding. Yes, gold! Truly, a sight to behold and an awe-inspiring work of architecture and art.

       There is no need to escape the city to unwind when the answer is in the middle of the city after all. I wasn't able to fully explore the entire park since I was here for an event of the company I work for. I can't wait to be back! -Jon-
