The place is small but they have many animal and bird species in there. It is very cheap also. Location is just besides Jumeirah beach.

Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane
highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the
UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in
Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road.
