Where is Box Park?
Box Park is located on the Al Wasl road, not as far down as City Walk, almost opposite Dr Michaels Dental clinic. The Box Park is on the same side of the road as the big Spinneys. It’s quite obvious to see as all the development is similar to cubist box type architecture. It is the third of a new cluster of modern shops and eateries on Al Wasl road.
What would you expect to find in Box Park?
65% of the outlets will be eateries, not all of them are open, but as of April 2015 there were Lebanese, Egyptian, salad places, Italian restaurants and an ice cream shop all doing a roaring trade on a week day evening! There are plans for a Chinese and Japanese but sadly no plans for any Indian places yet. 35% of the development will be retail. There are a mix of shops, some of which sell unusual gift type items, sports goods and shoes.
