Watch: Bunnies abound at Dubai's Al Barsha Pond Park

According to social media posts, rabbits have been a common sight at the park for years

Since it reopened last month, some of the visitors to Al Barsha Pond Park have an extra spring in their step.

The family-friendly park, located a few kilometres from Mall of the Emirates, is home to a small colony of fluffy bunnies, which have been delighting parkgoers as they leap through the grass.

Rabbits have been spotted close to the running track, towards Al Barsha Mall end of the park, along with cats and other wildlife.

In video clips taken by one visitor, one rabbit nibbles on a carrot amid the park's 20 hectares of greenery.

Al Barsha Pond Park, which was among a number of Dubai parks to reopen in May after closing in March amid the coronavirus pandemic, also features a cycling track and children's play areas.

According to social media posts, rabbits have been a common sight at the park for years, with ducks and birds also among the wildlife that can be spotted.

Facebook page Al Barsha Pond Park Animals urges visitors not to dump unwanted cats, kittens or rabbits at the park. Animals should instead be taken to shelters, of which there are several around the UAE.
