Discovery Gardens

Metro: Nakheel
Made up of clusters of Mediterranean style low-rise apartment blocks, Discovery Gardens is surprisingly green. Traffic bottlenecks can be a problem during rush hours, but there is plenty of parking around the buildings. There is also a Red Line Metro stop outside Ibn Battuta, but you need to take the F43 feeder bus to access it.

The neighbouring development Al Furjan is designed with families in mind.

Al Furjan has two schools. Jebel Ali Primary School and the Winchester School are both in the Jabal Ali vicinity approximately 15-20 minutes’ drive away.

Discovery Gardens has the Aster Medical Centre. The Cedars Jebel Ali International Hospital is near to both Discovery Gardens and Al Furjan.

Although there aren’t any major shops within the Discovery Gardens development, Ibn Battuta mall is conveniently close and contains a large Géant hypermarket. Al Furjan has the Village Centre with several shops and supermarkets.
Heading to Marsa Dubai and Al Barsha for a drink or a nice dinner isn’t much of a hassle, and the Movenpick Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel is a welcome addition to the immediate area’s dining and bar scene. Ibn Battuta Mall houses a cinema and several restaurants.

Al Furjan has 50 hectares of park and outdoor spaces as well as cycling and jogging tracks.
Rents tend to be lower here and apartments easy to come by. The buildings only contain studios and one-bedroom apartments. It’s one of the few places where landlords will still accept quarterly rental payments as opposed to six months or a year upfront.
Annual rental prices: One-bedroom apartment from Dhs.55,000.
Al Furjan is a low-rise development with four communities of apartments, three- to six-bedroom villas and three-bedroom terraced houses. The whole area is designed to promote outdoor living.
It’s a peaceful and pleasant area, but a little out of town and so is better for families and those seeking a peaceful existence. 
Annual rental prices: Three-bedroom villa from Dhs.150,000.
