Al Barsha Pond Park Dubai is one of the most popular Pond Parks in Dubai. It is especially popular among sports lovers and fitness enthusiasts. The ambience of the park is such that you feel like visiting the park daily for one or other sports or fitness activities. It is one among the many Pond Parks in Dubai as there are many similar pond parks in different parts of Dubai.
Al Barsha Pond Park is located in Al Barsha 2. Interestingly the location of the park is at the intersection of Al Barsha 1, Al Barsha 2 and Al Barsha 3, making it equally accessible for all Al Barsha residents. Location: https://goo.gl/maps/SDPiRvFNZMD2
The fame of the park among sports enthusiasts, especially Basketball lovers is such that, people even drive all the way from Sharjah to join matches with their team mates. Apart from Basketball, there are Football grounds, Volleyball court, Tennis court (now under Emirates Tennis Academy) and Badminton courts. The Jogging track is 1.4 Kilometers long. There is a separate dedicated cycling track which is longer than the jogging track. Along the jogging track, there are self-weight training gym equipments. One of the most recent additions is the Calisthenics area which help you train on your own weight and help to improve your core strength. The track around the pond is my favorite Rollerblading / Inline Skating track in this part of the city. Kids have dedicated play area where they can move around safely as the ground is filled with sand. Also, to make it safer for all kids, the kids play area is separate for toddlers and grown up kids. All these facilities are free of charge. A big thanks goes to Dubai Government and Municipality Authorities.
A new attraction here is the boating facility in the pond that started recently. Tickets for the boat ride can be purchased from the boat entrance area. All boats are 100% Solar-Powered boats. Kids love the Swan shaped boats. Rates for the boating are as below:

For bike lovers, there is a bicycle hire facility available for individuals as well as for family (2/4 seaters). Multiple food outlets are available for quick refreshments. The park is equally popular among picnickers especially during weekends. There are some nice quite corners where the family can enjoy a nice time and even organize small birthday parties here.
The greenery, flora and fauna of the park is well maintained. You can spot some lovely Cats, Ducks, Guinea Fowl, birds in the park which add up to the ambience for nature lovers. This ambience makes it a perfect place for Yoga groups and practitioners who meet up on a regular basis in the park.\
