Cute and furry gang goals…

Umm Al Emarat Park is home to some seriously wholesome family-friendly feels.

But as of today, those feels get significantly more fluffy.

The popular Animal Barn attraction has returned to the verdant space, offering an opportunity to get up close and cuddly with some of nature’s cutest creatures.

There are ponies, rabbits, tortoises, pygmy goats, camels, and, the new to the park this year — three enquisitive emus.

Emus are the most loyal animals on the planet apparently… because they really stick their neck out for you.

Entry to the park is charged at just Dhs10, making this one of the best value family outings in the capital.
