A new adventure park, XPark Jr is opening today, March 8th just steps away from Dubai’s popular Kite Beach in the park site formally known as The Journey. The natural play escape gives children, aged 1 to 12, a platform to explore, discover and let their imagination run wild through unrestricted and messy play.
This brand new close to nature park features plant-life, streams, waterfalls and fountains, tree houses, wooden bridges, climbing nets, bridges, a petting zoo, as well as a sand play area and a mud kitchen. The design of the park allows children to take healthy risks, independently build confidence, create adventures and connect with other children.
Along with the permanent play area of the park, XPark Jr will also offer the Urban Forest School Programme which aims to connect school and nursery children with nature through structured group visits to XPark Jr and activities that include free-play, den building, arts and crafts, campfire building, studying small animals and plant life and enjoying a small snack.
Timings for the park are 8am-6pm, Sunday to Wednesday and 8am-8pm, Thursday to Saturday, with entry priced at 45 Dhs per child and one adult for two hours. Additional hours of play are 25 Dhs per hour and children under 1 year of age enter free of charge.
Birthday and party packages will be available with a private room available for birthday’s and other special occasions. A branch of Kite Beach’s Park House will also be open at XPark Jr, offering healthy meals and drinks for park visitors as well as weekend brunches, BBQs and catering for parties.
