I was on a lovely feild trip to this wonderful park in Dubai. It was in the afternoon and It was pretty much hot (phew) but we managed to do something.

What I really liked most was the tinnes match I had with my friends there. Although I was’nt that easy because we didn’t know how to hit the ball but it was fun after all.

We spent woderful times there and lots of funny stories like the huge tree and the ball. (hehe) :)

I wish to go there again someday with all of my friends and teachers too…

you can see some of the pictures taken by me below. Enjoy and don’t forget to click on the picture twice it you want a full view.

 note: Don’t mind the comments ( the names ) on the pictures, It is just related to me, so don’t mind it.

;)

      Hay Jurina,
      I’ve seen your questions about the park and I’ve found a detailed explanation of what
      you are searching for …
      hope I answered your question….

      “Never did a name of any park in Dubai apply to its actual location, as does the name of Al Safa Park. The complete serenity surrounding the park confirms the rightness of the name. The park was opened in 1975 on one side of Sheikh Zayed road on a 64 hectares area.

      The park has undergone a first development phase in 1984 covering the provision of sanitary utilities, construction of an indoor playground, and the provision of new games. From 1989 to 1992, the park has undergone the second phase of development, which has costed 45 million Dirhams, covering the institution of several modern-recreational and service facilities.
