These pathways lead to the expansive central park, which immerses residents in a refreshing outdoor experience, promoting relaxation and wellness.

Located in a highly sought after area opposite Al Habtoor Polo Resort, Haven is positioned along some of the most popular transport corridors in the emirate such as the Dubai-Al Ain Road, allowing for easy access to key business and lifestyle hubs, including Downtown Dubai and DIFC as well as attractions such as Global Village, IMG Worlds of Adventure, and Dubai Mall.
