by Shrestha Purkayastha

Burj Park is the perfect leisure attraction in Downtown Dubai, contained on a little island alongside the Burj Lake or the Dubai Fountain Lake. Accessible by bridges from the mainland, the park provides unparalleled vistas of the towering Burj Khalifa and the enchanting Dubai Fountain. It is the venue for some of the city’s most anticipated events including Market Outside the Box, a pop-up winter market held during the Dubai Shopping Festival. The park is designed for a range of events such as weddings, banquets, fashion galas, exhibitions, concerts and corporate functions.

Things To Do At Burj Park

Aside from attending one of the many events hosted here, the well-landscaped greenery and ample space make it a great spot to enjoy some of Dubai’s amazing scenery. Go cycling around the glittering area or enjoy a picnic with a view; bike hire and parking is available at the entrance. Just a few paces away lies The Dubai Mall – the world’s largest mall and home to many sought-after shopping, dining and entertainment offerings. Visitors often choose to experience the daily Dubai Fountain show up close, with a 30-minute ride on a traditional abra boat along the lake while others enjoy a leisurely stopover ahead of – or after – a tour or show at the nearby Dubai Opera.
