Winter is upon us, meaning it’s time to get outside. And going out doesn’t have to mean being expensive, either. We’ve rounded up eight fantastic free things to do with the kids this winter in Dubai. One needs to remember the sun cream.

Have a picnic at Al Barsha Pond Park

Nothing tastes as good as sarnies in the sunshine, so gather the gang, load up your picnic basket, and head to Al Barsha Pond Park to lay out your blanket.


 This is a popular spot with families, and come winter, you’ll find plenty of groups sharing snacks on the grass, kicking around a ball and generally having a wholesome time outdoors. 

There’s a large lawn overlooking the pond – which is more lake-sized than pond-sized – so the set-up is gorgeous and makes for a perfect spot for a picnic.

Let off steam at an outdoor playground

There are heaps of playgrounds to have some free fun at in Dubai. From swings to slides, climbing frames and more, something so simple makes for hours of smiles for all the family.

 For somewhere less well-known but brilliant, visit Town Square Park. There’s a decent-sized playground, a splash zone, a kid’s fountain and loads more to while away a few hours, so it’s an ideal free thing to do with kids in Dubai.

Marvel at The Dubai Fountain

The world’s largest choreographed fountain is an impressive sight for eyes of any age, but little peepers will be wowed by the stunning dancing water show in Downtown Dubai. 

The world-famous Dubai Fountain goes off every 30 minutes between 6 pm and 11 pm each day, so there’s plenty of chance to catch the incredible show, depending on the bedtimes of your small people. Plus, it’s free to watch, too; grab a spot outside The Dubai Mall and prepare to be wowed.
