Explore and Enjoy 10 Free Ventures with Your Kids in Dubai

12 November 2013 | Dubai

Wallet friendly ventures in Dubai will help you and your kids enjoy the city’s many delights with free entry:

1. Splash around at Dubai Marina Walk

Dubai Marina Walk is fun. You can splash through the fountains located near Spinneys and Starbucks. Enjoy spectacular views of yachts and palm trees. Packing an extra set of dry clothes is a must as you allow the tikes to get wet, while running through the fountains.

2. Safa Park Walk

Take the children to Safa Park and burn their naughty excess energy. It has a specially designed running circuit at the outer edge. This will make the kids excited. After a couple of laps into the 3.5km track, they will joyously go to bed tired and run down.
