Bring earplugs. The invasive music from the loudspeakers spoils the peaceful and tranquil atmosphere you might look forward to when walking around a park or botanical garden. We'd rather just listen to the birds.

Jumeirah Beach Park (JBP)

JBP beach access closed from 12 Oct 2014 due to construction of the Dubai Canal which will go through the JBP location. Ladies days and other activities also cancelled; restaurants, cafes, and other food outlets closed. Dubai Municipality said park (but not beach) access still available until end of Dec 2014 but mixed reports saying entry closed entirely from 12 Oct 2014. Reopen date planned for end of 2016 (which might mean in 2017). Dubai Canal completion date planned for 2016 or 2017.

Karama Park
Mushrif Park - Mirdif (Mirdiff)
Safa Park - Al Wasl (Jumeirah)

Safa Park still open Oct 2014 although construction for the Dubai Canal, which will go past the north-east side of the park, has resulted in car park restrictions, and a modified jogging track around the park. You can still run a complete circuit as of Nov 2014, unknown if this will change. Some reports in Oct 2014 said that Safa Park would be closed entirely during the Dubai Canal construction, conflicting with reports in May 2014 which said the park would remain open. Another report in mid 2014 said the entire Safa Park would be demolished (probably a reporting error). Dubai Canal completion planned for 2016 or 2017.

Satwa Park
Zabeel Park - Zabeel area (Zaabeel, Za'abeel, Zabil, Zab'il, Zabi'il)
Dubai Garden Glow

Art works made from used CDs, little bottles, porcelain crockery, frames enveloped with silk material. Representing trees, plants (tulip fields in The Netherlands), animals (Masai Mara migration, panda bears), and building replicas (Burj Khalifa, Sheikh Zayed Mosque) with pretty lights, developed at a cost of AED 30 million. Art installations by day, lit up at night. Best time for viewing is when the lights are on.
