Meraas Dubai, the people behind developments including La Mer, The Beach JBR and Boxpark, have just unveiled a new destination that’s definitely worth checking out, called The Yard.

The 350,000 square-foot extension adds to the existing Last Exit D89 in the up-coming Al Khawaneej area on the outskirts of the city, near Mushrif Park.
Blending rural farm environment with urban accents, The Yard has a distinctive visual identity with playful murals that provide an ideal backdrop for photographs. An 18-metre-tall windmill, a water mill, a wishing well, decorative vintage pick-up trucks, farm animals and bird houses further augment the photogenic appeal of the destination.
As well as the typical extension of new restaurants, shops and landscaped areas, The Yard is also home to Dubai’s first ‘Promise Bridge’. Also known as a love-locks bridge, it’s an ode to the original Pont des Arts bridge in Paris where people can make symbolic pledges to their loved ones by attaching padlocks to the bridge, usually with their initials on them.
