The Dubai Zoo is the oldest zoo on the Arabian peninsula, containing rare Arabian as well as foreign species of animals. Bengal tigers, Arabian wolves and gorillas are all represented here. It's also the one place you can go where you'll find the most grass. Wild Wadi Waterpark is also located in Jumeirah, and is a great place for families to have fun, relax and cool off. If your interests run to Archeology, there are three main excavations that you can explore: one at Ghusais, another at Al Sufooh and a third one at Jumeirah. The first two are 2000 year old graveyards and the third dates from the 7th to 15th Century and contains artifacts and more. Visitors must obtain a permit from the Dubai Museum.
