We can also point out the following parks:
Al Qurm Park: Opened in 1993, it is situated near the beach of Al Qurm (in Al Shati Street) and an area of protected mangroves. It’s the biggest park in the city where we can find migrating birds, cascades and gardens filled with flowers. You can also find a small theme park for children.
Riyam Park: situated at the end of the boardwalk (corniche), it’s filled with green gardens and a mountain crowned by the huge figure of an incense burner. We can return to the corniche on a bike rented near the park.
