Ski Dubai is the first and as yet only indoor ski resort in the Middle East. This indoor resort features 5 ski slopes, each of varying length and steepness. It also contains a toboggan run and a snowboard run. All relevant equipment can be rented on sight and instructors for all the disciplines are on hand to give lessons when needed. The park tries to maintain its mountain appeal by housing the St. Moritz Café which offers traditional mountain fare. For the not so “sporty” type, the complex also houses the largest indoor snow park in the world and so if you tire from the burning in the Arabian sun, you know you have a place you can go to cool off.
This is not a comprehensive list of all the parks in Dubai, merely a cross section of possibly the best. With the total number of parks in Dubai I am sure that where ever you are staying in the city there will be a park near to your location. Most of the parks feature playgrounds and sports areas, along with barbeque or picnic areas. As most of them are either on the beach or have a swimming pool, these parks are popular with the younger generation and obviously, depending on the level of supervision that each individual park has, may give the parents the opportunity to leave the children at one of these parks whilst they go to shops that are inevitably, close to the park.
