Dubai Creek Park lies on the edge of Dubai Creek, which connects the desert to the sea trading port in the old city located between Garhoud and Maktoum. This park can be found in Dubai Creek Park, the second largest park in Dubai. It is also one of the oldest parks in Dubai due to the fact that it was established in 1994. It consists of sprawling acreage of lush gardens and lawns, as well as children’s playgrounds. It is especially popular among families due to its location near the sea which provides visitors with a cooling breeze and a scenic view.
Since Dubai Creek Park sits just on the edge of a saltwater creek, it is accessible by three helipads and water. Boats arriving from Bur Dubai or Deira can stay at any of the four available berths in the park.
Dubai Creek is home to a wide variety of marine life that thrives in the shallow, warm waters of the creek. As a result, you will see an abundance of marine life. Dhows, which were once used to fish, can be rented for those who wish to experience a peaceful and serene ride.
According to history, the creek area has played a very important role in Dubai’s steady economy, as it is the only harbor in the city, and as such, it has long been the main driver of the city’s economic development. Today, the creek area serves both as an economic and tourist attraction in the city.
