Offering a calm, scenic oasis away from the heat and noise of the city, Safa Park is hugely popular with locals and visitors alike. Spanning 64 hectares, it is the largest park in the city, and offers a wonderful weekend destination for those searching for a tranquil sanctuary, full of community spirit.
Safa Park is located alongside the busy Sheikh Zayed Road, but once you're within its boundaries you couldn't be further removed from the noise of hectic city roads. The park provides numerous areas, enclaves and facilities that help to make the park an ideal destination for a huge range of visitors.
Fancy a family picnic?
Why not take advantage of the permanent barbecues installed along the edge of the park? Looking for a safe, pleasant environment for the kids to play in? Younger ones will love Safa Park's multitude of playgrounds, while older kids can head for the amusement park. Couples can enjoy a romantic stroll, or head to the lake for a boat ride. If you're looking to keep fit, you will enjoy the park's running track and excellent sports facilities. Or seek out one of the park's beautiful hidden gardens if you're simply looking for a quiet, tranquil space in which to settle down with a good book. Safa Park really does have something for everyone – whatever you're looking for.
Safa Park is also the venue for a number of wonderful markets, where you can pick up organic food, arts and crafts, and a whole lot more. Local suppliers, creators and traders help to create an amazing community spirit right here in the park. The highlight – and one of the park's most popular events – is the monthly flea market, when hoards of bargain hunters descend on the park looking for appliances, toys, clothes, books, furniture and any number of other amazing finds.
If you're looking for refreshment but haven't brought your own picnic, you'll be relieved to know that Safa Park is also home to the Archive, a wonderfully tranquil café where you can enjoy a great selection of food and beverages, whilst browsing through its incredible book collection.
