The people behind the developments like La Mer and The Beach JBR, The Meeras Group has come up with a new development destination. The new destination, The Yard Dubai has been unveiled recently and is definitely a place worth visiting. In this post, we will tell you all about The Yard Dubai.
What is The Yard ?
The Yard Dubai is a whole new area to explore in Dubai. It is a 350,000 sq. ft extension to the existing Last Exit D89 . The destination features playful mural, similar to the Art Work across buildings in La Mer.
The Yard comprises a rustic courtyard, an organic farmer’s market, a bakery, a lake with two bridges spanning it, shaded walking trails. The inspiration behind this is Dubai’s agricultural heartland, showing a blend of rural farm environment with urban accents. It also has air-conditioned and open-air restaurants and dining spaces.
The place is perfect for you to get beautiful pictures for your Instagram account. The 18-m high wind wall, wishing well, decorative vintage trucks scream “Instagram me”!
Now open to public, it is aimed to be a 2.8 million sq. ft “urban destination” project. The Yard is open 24*7.
Where is The Yard Located?
It is located in the Al Khawaneej area on the outskirts of the city, near Mushrif Park.
How do I get to The Yard?
If you want to use public transport for going to The Yard, you can take a bus from Rashidiya Metro station bus stop. RTA Buses F05 and 11A take you to Mushrif Veterinary and it is approximately a 2km walk from there. The most convenient way is to go by car or a cab. There is plenty of free parking and drop off points at the location.
What is the highlight of The Yard?
Dubai’s first “Promise Bridge” is located here. Also known as the love locks bridge, it is an ode to the original bridge in Paris, Ponts des Arts. People make symbolic promises to their loved ones here, by attaching padlocks with usually their names on them
Stepping stones from here lead to the 550m walkway.
What are some good restaurants at the Yard Dubai?
Krush Burger: Burgers are always a favourite for everyone. And extra cheese and fries make it even better. This food truck serves Fast Food and American Burgers.
The Inventing room: This food truck satisfies your dessert cravings. Their frozen hot chocolate is a recommended drink.
Mooyah: The food truck also serves fast food but their Loaded fries is what people generally order.
Meeras is creating imaginative and exciting family friendly destinations for Dubai residents. There are plans to host community events to bring residents and visitors in Al Khawaneej area together to socialise, create and innovative. It would be exciting to see The Yard Dubai once it is fully constructed.
