Need to borrow some milk from next door? Why walk when you can pop round via the lazy river?

Construction has begun on a new Dubai neighbourhood that’s going to come complete with its own lazy river. Arabian Ranches III is being developed by master developer Emaar, and will be found adjacent to the existing two Arabian Ranches communities.

Described as a ‘premium desert-themed community’, the new neighbourhood will span an expansive 6.67 million square metres.

Comprising of three and four bedroom townhouses, Arabian Ranches III will feature a lush central park in the middle, covering 30,000 square metres, a 4km long boulevard and a lazy river which looks like it will run through the centre. So, if you need to borrow something from next door, why walk when you can hop in a ring and take the lazy river?

In the park, there will be a central plaza, adventure zones, a parkour course, skate park, barbeque areas, jogging tracks and a gym. There will also be a direct connection from the new community to the 86km long Al Qudra cycling track.

A clubhouse, cinema, and dedicated retail area for shops and amenities will also feature at the centre of the community, ensuring residents have everything they need right on their doorstep.

Residents can also access the golfing facilities at the Arabian Ranches Golf Course, or hone their equestrian and polo skills at the Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club.
