Nestled in the heart of the city on 15th Street between Airport Road and Al Karamah Street, Umm Al Emarat Park is one of the largest and oldest parks in Abu Dhabi. Originally named Mushrif Park and built in 1982 as a park for ladies and children, the renamed park has seen extensive renovations, making it one of the best family parks in the city.
You'll find a variety of facilities and attractions here, including the Shade House, Animal Barn, Amphitheatre, Great Lawn, Botanic Garden, Children’s Garden and Evening Garden.The Animal Barn is operated in partnership with Emirates Park Zoo and houses animals including camels, baby goats, cows and ponies. The Amphitheatre is a large outdoor performing arts venue that can accommodate over 1,000 people. The Shade House is an iconic structure towering over the park and housing several species of plants in a moisture-controlled environment. Two upper-level decks offer picturesque views of the park and surrounding landscape.
In keeping with the park's history and heritage, over 200 trees from the original park were salvaged and positioned in their original spaces throughout.
