Jumeirah Park Area Guide
Jumeirah Park promises to be ‘a secure, family-orientated residential community’ of ‘2,000 stylish, luxury family villas, surrounded by expansive, verdant, eco-friendly parks and green spaces, as well as a host of integrated amenities’.
The reality is that it is not quite finished, and though the houses have been built there is hardly any greenery and the amenities are not complete. It’s frustrating for those who have bought into the project, but if you’re a pioneer you may be attracted by the developer’s claims for Jumeirah Park, ‘located at the heart of Dubai's most desirable residential district’.
The 2,000 villas in this 350-hectare neighbourhood are grouped in clusters, each cluster having its own design theme. The villas vary in size with three, four or five bedrooms and large family rooms and have been designed in three architectural styles: heritage, regional and rustic. All have private terraces and gardens and double garages, and the larger villas have their own private swimming pools. The parks and gardens shown on the master plan are not yet apparent and will probably not appear until the building works are finished.
Jumeirah Park Amenities
The long awaited Jumeirah Park Pavilion shopping mall has recently opened with a Geant Easy supermarket and a number of other outlets, the first of 28 shops, restaurants and cafes.
The parks, jogging, walking and cycle trails, tennis courts, gym and community clubhouse are still in the pipeline. Ditto the children's facilities including a children's day-care centre, play area and a youth centre. Eventually there’s going to be a school and some mosques. Once this lot is delivered, together with security and signposting, Jumeirah Park should resemble more closely the developer’s vision.
In January 2017 Nakheel announced a series of new, linked cycle routes to be created around its communities in Dubai, including a 20km track around Jumeirah Park. 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 is expected to be finished in 2019.
Jumeirah Park Travel Guide
It may not be complete but Jumeirah Park is well located, inland from Dubai Marina and close to the popular Springs and Meadows communities. Three main highways, Sheikh Zayed Road, Mohammed Bin Zayed Road, and Al Khail Road run nearby allowing easy access to Business Bay, Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Beach Residence and Abu Dhabi. The Airport is a 35-minute drive and the Dubai Mall 25 minutes.
