Palm Jumeirah Park or so-called Al Ittihad
Al Ittihad or Palm Jumeirah Park is the central public park located on the area of the artificial island of Palm Jumeirah. The park covers an area of more than 100 000 square kilometers and offers more than 60 species of astonishing trees.
The park also offers the racing track of 3.2 km, an open gym with various training machines, as well as a couple of playground for kids and public spaces for relaxation and entertainment.
The park is totally secluded from the noisy highway with a “wall” of hotel buildings, that’s why the atmosphere is always calm and quiet here. There’s a monorail road mounted ride inside the park, but it’s located too high and involves modern technologies, so one can enjoy silence and patience here. This park is really convenient for workouts, walking with kids, relaxing and chatting with people. Furthermore, the park can be accessed for free. Right in the center of the park one can find Byky bike rental station.
Al Ittihad was open during the National day of the UAE on December 2nd, 2012, and it became some kind of a gift to the entire nation from Nakheel developing company.
