Interaction with gardens and natural spaces offers various mental, physical, and social benefits for humans. In addition, sustainable sites consider human energy and creativity as renewable resources, recognizing the potential for healthy living. As a concept, Dubai Hills Estate stems from Emaar’s realization of the tangible benefits of green spaces and their role in improving the quality of life in urbanized areas.

Designed with an idyllic central park, basketball and volleyball pitches, children’s play areas, skate park, walking and cycling trails, Dubai Hills Estate provides you with an unparalleled array of entertainment options in complete harmony with nature, right at home in the neighbourhood. Adding to the available leisure choices, the community is home to Dubai Hills Golf Club and Dubai Hills Mall.

The Estate’s parks, garden spaces, street trees, and landscapes provide more than a pretty panorama, effectively reducing the stress of daily life by invoking a feeling of tranquillity. Studies have shown that stressed individuals feel better after exposure to natural scenes.

Scientists assert that green spaces increase our ability to concentrate, both on the tasks at hand and our subconsciously-viewed surroundings. Our voluntary attention forces us to ignore distractions every day and remain intensely devoted to work or stud. In contrast, involuntary attention provides us with an effortless and enjoyable awareness of sensory stimuli in the environment. Focusing on natural scenes gives voluntary attention a rest and allows involuntary attention to take over and recharge the human psyche.

Additionally, studies throughout the world have proven the power of green spaces to improve human health. Cities with high numbers of parks battle obesity and diabetes. Even relatively passive contact with nature—such as viewing it from a window—lowers blood pressure and anxiety levels.

Fueled by community events, celebrations, and a sense of togetherness that transcends all cultural boundaries, you’ll realise that Dubai Hills Estate is a thriving microcosm where ‘home’ extends far beyond your four walls. It is a place that touches the lives and speaks to the hopes and dreams of the people in the whole community.
