For high-rise views of the north bank's dramatic architecture, the cable car at Creekside Park (also known as Creek Park) is hard to beat. It's a stately 20-minute one-way journey that gives you a bird's-eye view of the park. This 221-acre green space is the largest in the downtown area and offers a 1.6-mi walk along Bur Dubai's creekside, a botanical garden, manicured flower beds, and stretches of shady lawns where families gather on weekends for fresh air and a picnic (barbecue cooking pits are located in certain areas throughout the park). Almost 300 plant species flourish here, and you can tour on foot or by minitrain.
Several entrances off Riyadh Road, Umm Hurair, Dubai, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
