Al Safa
Updated: 21st May, 2022

Al Safa

The buildings in this well established community include expensive villas and some royal residences as well as shops and restaurants.
Al Safa
Al Safa is a sub-community of Jumeirah, Dubai.

Al Safa is a mainly residential community in Dubai located between Umm Suqeim 1 and Sheikh Zayed Road. The buildings are all low-rise in this well established area which is home to many Emirati families as well as ex-pats.

There are many popular schools here including Jumeirah College, Jumeirah Primary School, Jumeirah English Speaking School, Al Ittihad Private School, Emirates English Speaking School, English College Primary & Secondary and many nursery schools.

In Al Wasl, just north of Al Safa, lies Safa Park. This was created in 1975 on the site of what had been a ‘plywood city’ shanty town, home to thousands of illegal, but tolerated, immigrant workers from India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Today it is one of the most beautiful open spaces in Dubai.

In 2013, the Dubai Water Canal project was unveiled showing that it would cut through Safa Park on its way towards the sea at Jumeirah. Four years later the canal opened and work began on landscaping the damaged parts of the park. An estimated 30 percent of the park has been lost to the waterway, but the new canal and its waterside promenades have added a new dimension to Safa Park, which is some compensation for its loss of green space.
