Visiting Dubai frame got off Metro at Max walked round to the park. Spoke to security staff who said we could not enter the park to access the frame so had to walk all the way round outside park. not 1,000,000 miles to walk but does seem a little bit crazy considering your ticket price for the frame includes access to the park. It would’ve been pleasant to walk through the park rather than walk all the way around. After an enjoyable visit to Dubai frame it was dark when we left so we could not walk through the park. Perhaps next time we are visiting Dubai we will make a special visit to visit the park.

This large park surrounds the frame and provides a tranquil pause from the hectic streets.
Try to visit around dusk, as it's too hot to visit when the sun is up.

UAE is a desert country, but you have to drive away from the cities to actually see the desert. Amidst the never-ending puzzle of zigzagging roads and towering skyscrapers, you can find some beautiful (and mostly huge) public parks, constructed by Dubai Parks Authorities. A big thumbs up to the Government for first conceptualizing and developing these parks and then maintaining them in these harsh climates in an immaculate manner. Now here are my 5-Pointers on some of the best Dubai parks. Dubai might not have a Central Park like New York, but there are many alternatives in different areas for some fun-filled picnics. (These parks might not be big enough attractions for tourists, but they are sure shot life savers for the residents)
1. Zabeel Park
Activity Duration: A couple of hours of lazy strolls or a half-day picnic with a barbecue. The choice is yours.
Ratings: 7/10 (Tourists can club this park with their tour of Dubai frame)
1. The Good: Huge area (we only explored one part of it and didn't go to the other side of the road). Magnificent views of the frame. Lush green grassy banks. Many play areas and lots of spaces to make your barbecues. Perfect place for a family outing.
2. Thumbs down: Whatever that domed attraction was closed. Not situated on a beach so no water fun.
3. The WoW Factor: Great picture opportunities with the magnificent Dubai Frame. All different angles can be assessed from here.
4. Money matters 5 aed per pax. It's totally worth it.
5. The 5-Point Experience: A great place for family picnics and gatherings You can barbecue or order food and have it here. The place is huge so doesn't feel crowded even on weekends.
My Verdict: Try out this park on a leisurely family weekend.

Lovely little park that is free to access after visiting the Dubai Frame (otherwise you have to pay separately). Plenty of benches and shade but not much else, at least during Ramadan. Restrooms were clean and seems like this park would have a lot of visitors in the evening hours. Parking available on site.

We had pre booked Dubai frame tickets which said free access to Jabeel park. We arrived off the metro and thought we would grab a drink and go to the play area before seeing the frame. Security would not let us in and said you can only come into the park AFTER the frame, not what the tickets said and security did not want to listen when I advised them it said free access no other limitations. We had to walk a long way around to get to the frame instead of the shorter way through the park and without a drink for our son.

Perhaps nice for families with kids who can enjoy the attractions like the dino and glowing stuff. The park is huge, well guarded and fenced to keep non-paying guests out (especially the area near the Frame). I got the feeling of being trapped.

The park design is a bit boring: grassy spaces for a picnic, trees, some shrubs and few flowers. The place lacks a soul. Perhaps they could involve garden architects and abolish the entrance fees. 5 Dirham is not a lot, but for low income people enough to stay away, but perhaps that is exactly the intention.

Nearest metro station Al Jafiliya
Most visitors seem to come and go by car (parking lots available)

This park is ideally located in close vicinity of residential places like, Karama, Bur Dubai, Jaffilia etc. The park has its own dedicated parking area which charges AED 10/- per entry (not hour) and you can stay as much as you want. The park has some rides for the young kids and play area for the teens. This is ideal for families or large groups who wants to enjoy the weekend and have some fun activities at the same time. Park also offer a jogging track outside its gate which is free for use.

It's a place which is very commonly used by my family and friends to enjoy the weekend, fun games, home made food and quality time.

There's nothing much to do in this park but appreciate the nearby Frame and take some photos.
Other than that - you can easily skip it.

Nestled in the midst of some busy commercial and upmarket domestic neighborhoods, the spacious Zabeel Park is easily approachable through roads and the Metro. Ample parking area makes Gate 1 a preferred entry point, though I saw at least one more gate. This 52-hectare park can easily accommodate 400 people with access to several bar-be-cue facilities. One can bring food from outside, though there is also an option to buy certain items on the premises. With a nominal entry fee for unlimited stay during the day, the variety of swings, models of structures, and a vast jogging track, the facility is an ideal picnic spot for families with children and the elderly.
