Directions to Al Barsha Pond Park
This all-in-one neighbourhood park is a fine addition to the missing, and direly needed green space in the newer parts of Dubai.
Al Barsha Pond Park, or Barsha Park - as it's commonly referred to, is approximately 50 acres in size with planted greens surrounding a large man-made lake. It is situated conveniently in the heart of Al Barsha's residential community. The park boasts a 2.5 km padded jogging track and a parallel cycling track, basketball courts, tennis courts, a mini football pitch, a beach volleyball court and of course 3 separate but nearby shaded children's play areas. The park offers well-manicured lawns and clusters of palm trees with park benches dotting its tracks around the perimeter. Bathroom facilities are located at the main entrance gate.
Barsha Park found a true following due to its quiet location and its modern facilities. Early morning joggers can be spotted circling its tracks on any given day. Also, children and families enjoy this retreat because of the generous sandy play areas and the ability to lay down a picnic basket without rubbing shoulders with neighbouring park goers while watching the kids play safely nearby. Plenty of parking coupled with ease of access make this one a favourite among community dwellers and avid athletes.
