Unexpected green spaces
Al Bidda Park next to the National Theatre (shows here are well worth the trip) is a popular spot for all generations. Kids love the incredible playground and skaters, cyclists and dog owners find endless entertainment in its green vistas. Tennis courts and football pitches are available for hire, and an amphitheatre hosts cinema screenings and musical performances throughout the year.
Hiding behind Villaggio Mall is Aspire Park, one of the largest green spaces in the Gulf nations. Replete with rivers, rare trees, grand fountains, a lake and a huge running track, it’s a fabulous location to escape the bustle of the city and to get back to nature.
