Guide

Discovery Gardens is a six kilometre long residential district situated in Jebel Ali between Sheikh Zayed Road and Emirates Road. The development was completed in 2008 and was one of the first 'newer' apartment communities to be built on the edge of Dubai.

The district consists of low rise apartment blocks containing more than 26,000 ‘affordable’ studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments. Its close proximity to some of Dubai’s major business and economic centres, including Dubai Internet City, Dubai Media City, Dubai Metal and Commodities Centre and Ibn Battuta Mall, make it ideally located for business and leisure.

The buildings in Discovery Gardens are grouped into clusters based on six ‘garden living’ themes: Zen, Mediterranean, Contemporary, Mogul, Mesoamerican and Cactus.

Home to nearly 60,000 residents, there are 291 low rise buildings with more than 26,000 studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments, 200 retail shops and three medical centres.

Outside the buildings are wide open spaces and landscaped gardens with a variety of amenities for residents.


Transport & Access

Commute times by car

From Discovery Gardens it takes roughly 24 minutes to drive to Dubai Mall, 15 minutes to Palm Jumeirah, 21 minutes to Burj Al Arab and 16 minutes to The Walk JBR.*

Airport proximity

Dubai International Airport (DXB) is roughly 46 minutes' drive and the new Al Maktoum International Airport is roughly 33 minutes' drive.*

Road access

Discovery Gardens is located at a new interchange on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai, between Interchanges 5 and 6 providing easy access to Emirates Road, Jebel Ali and the Dubai Metro.

Traffic congestion is a persistent headache at Discovery Gardens with too many drivers and too few exit roads. However, in the event of a clear run, Dubai Marina and the beaches can be reached in 15 minutes, the Jebel Ali Free Zone in 25, Downtown in 30 and the International Airport in 40 minutes.

Public transport

There are three new stations at The Gardens, Discovery Gardens and Al Furjan on the Dubai Metro Red Line linking Nakheel Harbour & Tower station to the Expo 2020 site, providing much needed connections to all parts of the metro system.

Feeder buses serve the community from Ibn Battuta Mall.

* Drive times are calculated by Google Maps and assume fastest route in typical traffic conditions.

Sub-communities

There are seven sub-communities in Discovery Gardens. Learn more in the following guides.

Amenities

There is a wide range of family-oriented amenities in Discovery Gardens including 13 community swimming pools, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, gyms, a football pitch, cycling and jogging trails, mosques and extensive undercover parking.

Right next door is Ibn Battuta Mall, the self-proclaimed largest themed shopping mall in the world. Designed to celebrate the travels of the famous Arabic explorer Ibn Battuta, this huge leisure destination boasts a giant Geant supermarket, over 275 retailers, 50 restaurants and food outlets, 20 cinema screens and the UAE’s only IMAX theatre. Add to this ‘a continual array of events and promotions’ and you can see why you wouldn’t want to pop in here just to buy a newspaper.

In January 2017 Nakheel announced a series of new, linked cycle routes to be created around its communities in Dubai, including a 40km track through Discovery Gardens, Garden View Villas and Al Furjan. Alongside this, a new 10km "super loop" speed track for experienced cyclists, with a smaller 5km loop inside it, is being built on a section of land between Jumeirah Park and Discovery Gardens. Work on the network of tracks started in mid 2017 and was expected to be finished in 2019.
