Burj Park

Burj Park is a park in Downtown Dubai, Emaar’s huge mixed-use development. It is set on an island, surrounded on three sides by the Burj Khalifa Lake. It is overlooked by the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building.

It isn’t a large park. It covers an area of around three hectares; roughly the size of three football pitches.

Most of the park is a well-tended lawn. The promenade on the eastern side is a great place to watch the Dubai Fountain. The promenade is less crowded than the area around the Dubai Mall, so you can get a good view of the fountain without having to jostle for position. It’s also one of the best places to take photos and videos of the fountain, as there is plenty of open space to set up your camera.

Burj Park is notable for several impressive public works of art. Win Victory Love is a sculpture of a hand giving Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s famous three-finger gesture. The hand sign shows W for Win, V for Victory, and L for Love. Many Dubai residents have adopted the sign as their trademark expression, symbolising a good work ethic, success, and patriotism.

Declaration is a sculpture by Dubai-based artist El Seed. The 30m stainless steel calligraphic work is rendered bright pink and appears to be floating. The words that form the sculpture were taken from a quote by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum:

‘Art in all its colours and types reflects the culture of the nations, their history, and civilisation’.

The work has been widely praised for its beauty and its message of positivity. It is located at the northern end of Burj Park, opposite the Dubai Opera.

The Dandelions project at Burj Park is stunning work of art. The sculpture is made up of 14 dandelions, each made with stainless steel and standing 7m high. The delicate nature of the dandelions contrasts sharply with the monumental architecture of the nearby Burj Khalifa, making for a truly breathtaking sight. Designed by Polish sculptor Mirek Struzik, Dandelions is a must-see for anyone visiting Downtown Dubai.

There’s no playground at the park, but battery-powered cars/bikes can be hired. There are plenty of activities and attractions for children in the Dubai Mall (Dubai Aquarium, KidZania, Dubai Ice Rink, etc.).

A pedestrian bridge at the southern end of the park, crosses the waters of Burj Khalifa Lake, linking it to Burj Residences and Burj Plaza. Burj Plaza is home to several restaurants. However, it is best known as the site of the Wings of Mexico sculpture. Instagrammers flock here in their thousands to have their picture taken against the backdrop of sculpture and the Burj Khalifa.
