Having said that, with the Dubai summers proving to be too hot for some people’s liking, it is often a conception that the city isn’t the place for outdoor activities.

This is undoubtedly Dubai’s most popular park. It has been around for over a decade and is a favorite for families to come and enjoy the day, whether for a picnic or making use of the park’s barbecue facilities. Safa Park has just recently undergone a makeover and the newly inaugurated Dubai Canal runs through the middle of the park, bringing a unique waterfront to the already beautiful spot. The entrance fee to Safa Park is less than $1.

Dubai is home to the largest ever indoor butterfly park at the Dubai Miracle Garden.
