Arjan is a new district located in Dubailand which is on the outskirts of Dubai. The area owes its fame to its 2 gorgeous parks, which are Dubai Miracle Garden and the Dubai Butterfly Garden.

The community is new (construction works started in 2006) and many buildings are still under construction or are just finished. Therefore there is little traffic congestion and low levels of noise, except for when you live near a construction site. Due to the calm peaceful location, the abundance of parks and greenery and the wide range of affordable apartments, this a popular area among young professionals and families with children.
