Welcome to the most OG skating spot in Dubai! Union Square is as important for Dubai’s history as it is for Dubai’s skating scene.
In the early years of Dubai, there were no skateparks or designated skating areas. Instead, the handful of skaters would go to the street. Since skating was not welcomed, the residents would throw down tomatoes on us skaters and beg us to stop bothering them.
In turn, Union Square became the hotspot to meet and practice. I suggest popping by on Fridays and Saturdays when Union Square is ram-packed with rookies and semi-pros.
