Shees Park is located in Khorfakkan, which is not too far from Sharjah. You can either drive or take a taxi to get there, as there are no buses that stop nearby. If you’re coming from Dubai via Al-Ain road, turn left after Gharam bridge and continue on that road for about 15 minutes until you reach Khorfakkan city. From there it should only be another 5 minutes of driving.

Entrance to Shees Park is free of charge. However, you can purchase Park Cards for $10 (Adult) and $5 (Child) in case you want to use them. The cards can be used at all parks run by Emalahat; they are valid for one year after purchase.
So what am I going to see?
Shees park is located on top of a mountain that overlooks three large cities. You'll be able to see Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Al Ain as if you were in an airplane. Along with great views you can also go shopping or hang out at one of two cafes; how fancy is that? And if you still have energy to burn after all that fun, hike through 5 km of forest trails or race around in 4x4s.
I have kids, do they need an entry ticket too?
Kids are free, but they still need to enter through Shees park’s north gate (the one opposite of where you came in) and get a visitor pass. It’s right there on top of their other entry tickets. Don’t worry; there are plenty of things for them to do while you run around checking out what Shees Park has to offer.
