“A building site in the middle of nowhere.....”
Reviewed 1 October 2012

A small area around the golf course and temporary club is completed and the new golf club is due to open soon, which looks very nice. Apart from that it’s an unfinished building site, some roads lead to nowhere and you will have to drive anywhere!! Not a pretty place.

“Nothing really happening here...”
Reviewed 30 July 2012

Nice to see if you happen to pass by. No need to drive out there as most of the facilities aren't in use as apparently the debt hasn't been paid on the hockey astro turf & who knows what else. Would be amazing if something actually does start happening out here.

“A sports city in which you can not run..”
Reviewed 19 July 2011

Ok guys, this sports city is under construction and there is a lot of way to go,but there is a big fact that had been missed! If you are a runner,running is your favorite sport like other millions of people in the world you can not find a descent place to run in Dubai Sports city or in Dubai. The only season you can run outdoors is winter,in Jan. or Feb. or maybe some part of December. That's all. At least they may have built an indoor running circuit with air conditioning in Sports City but no! Nobody has ever thought about it.They spent billions on an artificial boring ski circuit but mother of all sports,running, had been missed in Dubai Sports City.And that my friend is inexcusable mistake.

“Awaiting completion but good investment and cheap place to stay soon.”
Reviewed 6 February 2010

Not sure why this features on the things to do. It's a 5 min drive from the coastline and under construction. There are some things open e.g. sports stadium or golf course however if you're thinking of going as an attraction leave it a few years. There is a lot of marketing and promotional material which makes it look superb. It probably will be in a few years, maybe as many as ten. So to sum up go there if you're going for a specific reason. Finally it has some good investment potential or altermatively there are some properties which are almost, or just complete, which will provide a cheaper place to stay than on the coastline.
