Riverland Dubai is part of the biggest multi-themed leisure and entertainment destination called Dubai Parks and Resorts located in Jebel Ali and slated for launch in October 2016.

The waterfront location will serve as the main entrance and the connecting point between the three theme parks within the development – Bollywood Parks Dubai, motiongate Dubai and LEGOLAND Dubai including LEGOLAND Water Park – and their corresponding attractions.

Riverland Dubai will offer about 220,000 square feet of commercial space that will cater to the food and beverage, and retail sectors.

Visitors can expect a wide variety of businesses setting up shop in the area. This will include cafes, formal dining establishments and retail outlets that will sell anything from souvenirs, to toys and apparel.

The inspiration for the design of Riverland came from some of the favourite global pedestrian-friendly places in the world that merge both dining and retail scenarios into one fun experience. Some of these iconic places include New York’s Times Square, London’s Covent Garden and Barcelona’s Las Ramblas.

Riverland will feature a medieval French village where visitors can enjoy a Renaissance ambiance, an American in the 1950s setting and India Gate which will highlight the sights and sounds of India. Along the way, visitors will be entertained by live music and street entertainers.

Also to be found within Riverland is The Peninsula, which will be home to dining and entertainment facilities and several pavilions.

Thus, the whole stretch of Riverland will be a destination in itself, providing visitors all their needs in one space.

Handy Hints:

* Riverland Dubai will serve as main gate of Dubai Parks and Resorts

* It will feature different themes: French, American 50s and Indian

* It will have daily live entertainment to welcome visitors to the park
