Fodor's Expert Review Creekside Park
This 221-acre green space is the largest in the downtown area and offers a 1.6-mile walk along Bur Dubai's creek side, by a botanical garden, manicured flower beds, and stretches of shady lawns where families gather on weekends for fresh air and a picnic. The park also contains a cable car, with a 20-minute one-way journey that gives you a bird's-eye view of the park and surrounding areas. Bicycles for hire, a minitrain, go-karts, and minigolf can also entertain the little ones. Accessible from only inside the park you will also find the Dubai Dolphinarium (with daily aquatic shows), and Children's City, a science-themed children's museum.
