As well as fun climbing frames, within the park there’s an array of exciting activities including mini golf, a go-kart track, a dolphinarium as well as Children’s City.

The Dubai Dolphinarium attracts over 30,000 visitors per month. Visitors can get up-close and personal with aquatic life such as bottle nosed dolphins and seals. The dolphins and seals perform incredible acrobatics, dance, sing, juggle, play ball, jump through hoops and can even paint pictures. Children’s City is Dubai’s first interactive education attraction with a planetarium, nature centre and Global Exhibition Section. Kids from the ages of 2 to 15 can learn all about the human body too, as well as discovering more about the way we live. For your extra-little little ones, there’s also a toddler’s area full of fun and entertainment.
