  • Nice place for outdoor. Would have been much better if BBQ was allowed. U can do jogging, running and other sports here ...
  • Very quiet place to relax after a long day work
  • Quiet place for a family day.
  • The park open at 1600 hrs until 2300 hrs, No barbecue is allowed. The are some old tombs, this why it's archaeology one. Specious park, has few kids play grounds, and a small bikes rental shop. There is a Masjed for prayers. Very clean and quite park, only for families.
  • Lush green area to relax with nature

Where to stay in Al Ain

While Al Ain doesn't offer much in the way of true budget accommodations, many of its mid-range and luxury hotels are surprisingly good value. You'll find most hotels in the narrow streets of the old town, as well as some larger resorts around the fringes. Several of the city's hotels have swimming pools, which could provide welcome relief from the blistering heat. You can buy alcohol--heavily restricted throughout the U.A.E--at a few of the large hotels in Al Ain, including the Hilton and the Mercure Grand.
