Umm Al Emarat Park
A real natural treasure exists right in the very heart of Abu Dhabi island. With its beautiful botanical zone and its other small gardens representing different wild ecosystems, Umm Al Emarat Park puts the wild back into the city.
Explore the park, learn more about nature, be inspired by the words of the late Sheikh Zayed at the Wisdom Garden; then experience the calm wonder of the shade house and its exotic plants. Nearby you will find the desert ecosystem, where you can learn about the different plants that thrive in this arid ecosystem. Walk beneath the palms and watch out for the animals engraved on the floor tiles as you approach the rock pools that recreate the wadi ecosystem.
