The Park’s theatre can accommodate 500 people where musical concerts are performed during holidays, Eid and other special occasions.
Mushrif Park is the only park in Dubai, which is so big that you can actually drive through it. It is an excellent place for those who love to walk in big outdoor spaces, away from regular hustle-bustle. As you walk, you get to spot different species of birds and desert flora.
Apart from the international village which houses child-sized traditional structures from across the world, there is a large aviary, housing peacock, fancy pigeons, and other birds, not to mention the fluffy rabbits. You can also notice the sculpted rock gardens with little rivers running through. There is also a petting zoo and a stable, where children can participate and take riding lessons, riding Arabians around in a paddock, as they practice their trotting. There are also separate 25m men’s and women’s swimming pools within the premises.
The Mushrif Park is a great place for family picnics, and strolls under shady trees. The park charges entry fee of Dh3 per person, Dh.10 per car, while people with special needs are permitted free entry.
