The ‘urban playground’ has a variety of unique features including a central skate bowl, giant chess, viewing platforms.
XPark opens for the winter season near Kite Beach in Dubai. The park aims to provide sports enthusiasts – both seasoned and new – a space full of unique structures and features for fun activities.
The ‘urban playground’ is suitable for all ages and has two main areas for children. Visitors who are interested in getting their blood pumping can enjoy the parkour, climbing structures, calisthenics and skatepark.
The parkour loop offers children a variety of challenges such as a 20-foot climbing tower and a bouldering area.
The centerpiece of the park is the 3.2 meter deep skate bowl, which is part of the skate park built in consultation with professional skaters. Open to children ages four and up, it features unique structures with swings, ladders, rails, vertical walls and more.
The park also has a ‘cool zone’, with a stage, a DJ tower and activities such as giant chess and Jenga.
As the Dubai Fitness Challenge continues this month, and the temperatures drop, residents are increasingly choosing fun outdoor activities to explore. “We are delighted to have XPark by Etisalat open for winter, steps away from Kite Beach,” says Mohammed Javad, General Manager of XDubai. “The urban park, which is the first of its kind in the Middle East, is in line with our values and passion at XDubai to provide endless opportunities and experiences, encouraging active lifestyles for residents and visitors.”
The park is open seven days a week from 2.30pm to 9.30pm on weekdays, and 8am to 9.30pm on weekends. Entry to XPark is priced at Dh75, and rental of skateboards and scooters is available on request.
