Safa Park, which first opened in 1975, is a destination within the City for recreation, relaxation and entertainment that is located in the heart of the Dubai Water Canal district. The redevelopment of Safa Park will enhance everything the park has to offer to the residents and tourists of Dubai.
Large open spaces and green pathways will connect people to the park and city. Safa Park will be seen as a destination and public realm that applies the highest standards of quality, livability and sustainability to establish a model for parks and public spaces throughout the Emirates.
The Safa Park development will provide community spaces where residents can participate in exercise, recreation, sports and social activities, leading to the improvement of general health and well-being. Pedestrian and cycle links will be established from Safa Park to the Dubai Water Canal Project as well as city wide Dubai cycle routes. Shaded walkways will connect residents and visitors to the amenities that will be located within a walkable distance of each other. The landscape design for Safa Park will provide for a high degree of diversity and variety within the project area with spaces that provide a layering of culture and functions. Micro climatic design has been incorporated into the development plans which harnesses the capability of five natural systems – sun, water, wind, vegetation, and minerals.
