Burj Park is a park at Downtown Dubai, Emaar’s huge mixed-use development. It is set on an island, surrounded on three sides by the Burj Khalifa Lake.
It isn’t a large park. It covers an area of around three hectares; roughly the size of three football pitches.
There are a few pieces of public art here. The most notable is Win Victory Love. This is a large statue of hand depicting Sheikh Mohammed’s famous three-finger salute.
Entrance to the park is free. However, the park is occasionally used for concerts, shows, and events. Entrance could be restricted during these times.
