The Best Dubai Picnic Spots
As the weather starts to cool down, we all want to be outside more. In my opinion, the best way to spend time outdoors is to have a picnic!
Here, we list some of the best picnic spots in Dubai. So pack some lunch and enjoy these hand picked spots along with all of the activities they have to offer!
- Zabeel Park
This park has a lake for beautiful views, offers boat rides, has sports courts, barbecue areas, and picnic tables. There are also fun displays, activities for kids, as well as outdoor IMAX films depending on the season! And soon enough, Ripe Markets will be back in full swing every Friday! This place lends itself to a day full of fun!
- Satwa Park
With playgrounds, football pitches, basketball courts, volleyball courts, tennis courts, a running track, and of course, green lawns to picnic on, what's not to love?

While the Children City Centre and the Dubai Dolphinarium remain the main attractions of this park, there is still plenty of space available for picnics, as well as a cable car, a miniature train, bike rentals, and an amphitheatre.
- Al Barsha Park
This park is relatively new in comparison to the others, and comes with sports courts, fitness machines, a running track, and plenty of play areas for children. Ripe Night Markets are also held here during the cooler months.
