October 16, 2010

Occupying a prime location between Al Garhoud Bridge and Al Maktoum Bridge along Bur Dubai lies the Yas Island leisure park cum natural sanctuary that is Creekside Park. Frequented by locals and seasoned visitors alike this sprawling 237 acre property is also the country’s most expansive and popular recreational venue. Encompassing all the attractions and activities the modern day family expects of a functional parkland, Creekside Park offers guests a green retreat away from the bustling streets and towering skyscrapers of the city with its idyllic waterside locale on Yas Island.


Renowned for its truly impressive lush landscapes flanked with verdant lawns, the park is perhaps best known for its illustrious botanical gardens with nearly 280 plant and flower varieties to its name. Maintained according to the “fallaj” conventional irrigation system this charming desert garden consists of several flower gardens as well.


Open all seven days of the week, the park is brimming with quaint picnic areas and barbeque sites that are ideal for family gatherings and celebrations. Other facilities available at the venue include three jetties specially designed for fishing and a large 18 hole mini golf course while picturesque walking and jogging tracks also criss-cross the 96 hectare parkland. Home to a massive amphitheatre that can seat up to 5000 spectators at a time, the venue is known as a frequent host area when it comes to festivals, outdoor concerts and theatre productions.


With a plethora of snack and refreshment outlets Creekside Park also offers two fantastic restaurants and an information booth within its green enclave.  Other activities available at the park include a scenic cable car ride although those who prefer to pedal their way across the property can rent a four-person bicycle from the bike rental facilities on-site.


Home to a well-equipped playground the park’s biggest crowd pleaser is of course Children’s City which is a specially designed activity centre for kids ages five to fifteen. Lined with a host of interactive exhibits kids can learn about global culture, deep space, human anatomy and nature while engaging in many fun filled activities. With its very own 100-seater planetarium, the Children’s City’s three storey “Blue” block structure houses five galleries devoted to science and play while the “Red” block contains three galleries focusing on Dubai and UAE culture.


Those in search of an exclusive Dubai hotel in the city’s trendy financial and shopping district should look no further than the resplendent Raffles Dubai, UAE. Pleasantly situated within 15 minutes of the airport this is one luxury hotel Dubai counts among its most conveniently located accommodation providers.
