  • Quiet green park. You can enjoy walking cycling even playing witg your kids. There is 2 kids areas with alot of sliding and swinging activities. A big green areas with seats. There is a masjid and toilets areas for men and women. It is a perfect destination for quiet family times.
  • Very interesting archeological exhibits found sprinkled throughout the area. The park itself is rather simple and modest in terms of landscaping, amount of flowers and such.
  • Nice place to spend time with family. Good place for family/friends gathering. No supermarkets, restaurant near by. So better go with enough stuff like water, juice, snacks, cards etc.
  • Good place to hangout with the family, nothing really historical about it. Closes at 11pm which is too early for me.
  • Nice place for a family outing. Archaeological site with lovely gardens

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.
