The area has been marked with an RTA parking sign that holds an “A” zone, meaning that anyone who wants to park their car in that area will have to pay a fee of AED4 an hour.
Parking charges are applicable from 8:00 AM till 10:00 PM from Saturday to Thursday during the week.
Fridays and public holidays are the only times when RTA designated parking would be free of charge.
The parking fees around Dubai depends on which category the parking is in.

- 4 Hours – AED16
Category 2: Rest of Dubai
- 1 Hour – AED2
- 2 Hours – AED5
