The Ripe Market @ Dubai Police Academy

The Ripe Market is back for its second season at the Academy Park, Umm Suqeim!


Mark your calendars for 25 & 26 October, as it’s our official launch weekend.

The Park will be open 7 days per week with the Ripe Market running every Friday 9am-7pm & Saturday 10am-7pm.

As part of our lineup this year, we’ll have 7 permanent cafés open 7 days a week, a dedicated dog park, Just Play will run a sports academy all throughout the week, and a Garden Centre is set to open too. To add to the activities, our team have a program full of fun & games to keep us busy till the very end.

The Ripe Market at Academy Park readies itself for its next season outdoors with two newly-opened Just Play, five-a-side football fields. Open from this month for corporate, private and birthday-party bookings, the latest attractions are a great way to keep the little, as well as big ones, busy and entertained.

As the weather cools, Dubai residents are desperate to step outdoors. Whether spending the morning shopping and dining at the Ripe Market, or just looking for a healthy and fun day out, the Just Play attractions at Academy Park have something for everyone. Get ahead of the queue and book online for corporate events, a footie game with the lads, or as the perfect venue for a birthday party. The two flood-lit fields, fitted with astroturf accommodate five-a-side games, and are the ideal spot for a weekend out with the whole family. Guests are invited to relax, soak in the good weather and enjoy the tasty treats at the Ripe Market, whilst extending the excitement with Just Play.

“Just Play has always been dedicated to healthy, fun activities for the whole family,” noted CEO and Co-founder, Anouar Idrissi. “The added five-a-side football fields are a perfect way to bring everyone together and enjoy the best of Dubai weather.” With its central location, the Academy Park is ideally situated for hosting birthday parties. It offers all the fun of a Just Play experience in an outdoor setting. Parents will love the respite whilst their children test and improve foundational skills including climbing, swinging and balancing.
With F&B offerings, an on-site dog park and lots of parking, the venue is a great spot to step outdoors on weekends and relax without stress. Corporates can avail discounted rates for long-term bookings, whilst weekend birthdays bookings are available through early reservations. Adults are welcome to try the expanded Ninja Warrior course to test their
strength and stamina, or just enjoy some healthy, active fun.

“The Ripe Market with its food options and central location, is a popular weekend spot. With the five-a-side football fields, there is even more added to the Just Play repertoire already on site. There really is then, something to do for everyone,” added Anouar. For more information, or to reserve use of the fields, see
